David and I recently held a private session in our studio for the staff of the Millicent Rogers Museum, located here in Taos. David has worked closely with the museum to reproduce some of Millicent’s original jewelry designs. He was able to share his creative insights as to how many of the original designs were manufactured, and compare that with his modern techniques. The attendees gained knowledge that they can now share with visitors to the museum. Light refreshments were served, and a question and answer session combined with showing our finished jewelry topped off the afternoon. Our studio is available for private classes, demos and jewelry sales by appointment.

About the Author: Gail Golden Jewelry
“In a world where mass production is common, I take an uncommon approach to making jewelry. Each piece is handmade, one at a time. My jewelry tells stories of individualism. Dialogues with nature’s aesthetics. An affinity for the earth’s treasures of precious metals and gemstones. Expressing beauty in a new way. I specialize in connecting with you to create jewelry that tells your story. The clear light and dramatic weather of northern New Mexico are deeply influential. My designs lean towards earthy and rustic, especially when I combine high karat gold with steel. I share my studio with my goldsmith husband and dogs Sir Angus Porterhouse and Sashi Pearl. We welcome visitors by appointment.” “Past lives” include stints as a seasonal forest fire fighter, river rafter, ski instructor, T-shirt illustrator, clothing buyer, and lots of time in the backcountry on horseback and backpacking. Each experience informs her current design expression. In addition to her online store and showroom, Gail’s work can be found at Raiford Gallery in Roswell Georgia, and the Millicent Rogers Museum in Taos New Mexico.
