Maria Rooks-Delgado is a Chicana artist from Santa Fe, New Mexico. Her Mexican/Chicana inspired jewelry and art evokes joy and pride in the culture as well as invites you to join in her expression of love for all things Chicana/Chicano.
"My Art Jewelry is a blend of Chicana-Chola, Hispanic and Mexican mixed blood culture; of women who embrace a personal expression.
From hairstyles, make-up, jewelry and dress, these women represent a sisterhood that survived via their strength, beauty and spirit. There is a devotion to self-expression which defines them individually.
My mission is to create jewelry that brings out that freedom of expression and individuality, to empower and define us all."
