New Mexico Fall favorite time of year and one filled with much inspiration. 

Although most people don't think of New Mexico when the leaves are changing....I have to say, they are missing out. 

The southern Rockies lend themselves to a beautiful array of golden yellow and orange hues.  A few early frosts this year may be cutting our fall colors short, but I am enjoying the warm days, blue skies, cool nights and using the leaves of New Mexico to incorporate more color into my designs.

And I must admit, I am thinking of waxing my snowboard soon....what can I say, winter could be right around the corner.  Oh yeah!

Festival The Bazaar

Come see me this Saturday at "Festival The Bazaar" hosted by the Spanish Colonial Arts Society of Albuquerque.  I will be displaying my "Spanish Treasures Collection" there.

My "Spanish Treasures Collection" is collection of jewelry based on a Spanish coin.  The original Spanish coin (or real) was discovered by a friend of ours in Santa Fe, NM, as he was digging in his backyard.  It is possible the original coin had been in the ground since the 1500's, when the Spaniards arrived in Santa Fe.  A true treasure find!  A mold was made of the original coin and incorporated into this beautiful jewelry line. 

I'll be there with my good friend Denise Cordero of Diva D'Luxe.  Come see us and celebrate our Hispanic culture in the Land of Enchantment!

Where:  Hotel Albuquerque at Old Town

When:  Saturday, October 12th; 10:30-2:30
