About the Artist

"Born and raised on the Santo Domingo Pueblo Reservation in New Mexico, Ed created jewelry for over 40 years. Ed was one of the few artists continuing the art of hand-pulled necklaces.  Forming beads from silver is time consuming work, requiring patience and precision.

Mr. Aguilar studied silversmithing at boarding school in Santa Fe.  In the 1960's after watching his uncle "pull silver" into tubular beads for chains, he decided to make jewelry.  Edward Aguilar was unique in his interest in fashioning these beads in a square to rectangular format."

He  died in 1992.
