Handcrafted Jewelry Designer Based in NM

 I have always been fascinated with the beauty and history of the Southwestern Desert. I was raised in La Union, New Mexico a small farming community. My childhood was spent outdoors mostly, where I would go roaming around acequias, alfalfa fields and the nearby open desert terrain. Having that freedom as a child  I really felt a connection to nature and the earth and I have carried that with me.

I studied at NMSU and earned a BA with an emphasis on Metals/Jewelry Design.  I still like to go exploring. I look to patterns, colors and texture while out and about that I can incorporate into my designs. My intention is to create jewelry with much curiosity and passion that at times can reflect our ancient past, connect us to nature, or remind us of a special time and place.
