In the 25 years I’ve lived in New Mexico, I have been continually blessed with opportunities, friends, and all kinds of unexpected support for the endeavors I chose to pursue. Many open doors have led to many unique experiences including success and lasting friendships. Taos in particular is a small but enthusiastic community of people who support the arts. My jewelry business has thrived partially because of the eclectic group of collectors who have purchased my work and commissioned me to create special custom pieces. While I treasure my collectors from everywhere, when it’s time for me to support nonprofit causes my heart always goes home. I am an ardent believer in giving back to the community on a local level. I’ve compiled a list of upcoming events to which I have donated pieces of jewelry. It’s my way of saying thank you, and giving back in a heartfelt way.
