My jewelry is a tangible reflection of my life's journey, intricately woven with the rich tapestry of my mixed heritage and the enduring legacies of those who came before me. As an artist, my jewelry seamlessly extends from my visual artistry, drawing inspiration from the characters I paint or draw and the thematic elements that shape my work. It transcends the mere realm of accessories; it is a symbol and an extension of one's unique personality.

Jewelry has adorned individuals across the globe for centuries, serving not only as an embellishment but also as an amulet or talisman, representing a myriad of ideals and beliefs. My journey into the world of jewelry began in childhood when my grandmother passionately collected and sold jewelry at local flea markets in Pueblo, Colorado. Her love for jewelry was infectious, leaving an indelible mark on our family, as many of us proudly wore the pieces she lovingly gifted us.

My artistic path took a new turn when I relocated to the vibrant city of New York City to pursue a career as a dancer. At 18, I embarked on a self-guided exploration of jewelry making, teaching myself the techniques of wire wrapping and bead stringing. This curiosity led me to dive into traditional metalsmithing, honing my craft at Studio Jewelers Ltd. in Manhattan.

Rooted in Neuvomexicano (Spanish and Indigenous mix) and Indigenous Genízaro ancestry from southern Colorado and New Mexico, my heritage is a wellspring of creativity. Exploring the iconic styles of southwestern jewelry, I discovered the influence and fusion of Spanish and Indigenous practices, including shared symbols, techniques, and materials like the sacred turquoise, spanning generations and mirroring my family's intricate history. It's intriguing to learn that on my maternal side, my third great-grandfather, and on my paternal side, my fourth great-grandfather were blacksmiths, further deepening our family's ties to craftsmanship and the world of metalwork.

This revelation inspired me to infuse my unique twist into this age-old tradition, giving rise to a contemporary style that stands apart while narrating my story. My creations encompass otherworldly shapes and organic organisms like plants, trees, animals, creatures, and characters that intertwine seamlessly with my artwork. Drawing inspiration from the intricate designs of Spanish jewelry from the Middle Ages, Art Nouveau, and Indigenous symbolism, my jewelry reflects a harmonious blend of tradition and innovation.

With an unwavering commitment to tradition, I meticulously craft each piece using time-honored metalsmithing techniques alongside the finest materials and one-of-a-kind gemstones. Through my jewelry, I aim to share my narrative and vision with you. As you wear and cherish my creations, you become a part of a timeless testament to the enduring spirit of artistry.
