A native of Western Colorado, I am the descendant of Colorado Pioneers. I come from a heritage where “cowboy” is not only a noun, but a verb and a job description. As the daughter of an artist and in a family of artists and creators, I've drawn, colored, cut, pasted, whittled, sculpted, soldered, molded, knotted, painted, and created from whatever was available for as long as I can remember. I started making jewelry when I was 10. A lifelong lover of sparkly things, this is a dangerous pastime for me ;) !
