Jewelry from the middle of nowhere, Argentina!

From the woods of eastern Kansas to the middle of Dallas, I’ve had several different jewelry studios. For the last several years I’ve lived in the mountains of western Argentina with my husband, Juan, and our two little girls. My studio resides in what used to be the chicken coop. On our way to work, we feed the pig, mules, dogs, goats, chickens, and rabbits, as well as water the gardens and orchard. We eat lunch on the living roof where we have a good view of the mountains and plan our next mule trip. This studio is smaller than my previous ones, but also much more intimate. Before moving here, I felt pressure to produce as much jewelry as possible and used various electric tools. However, I have come to appreciate the calm that comes from working and finishing each piece primarily by hand. When the rooster isn’t crowing, I enjoy listening to the chatter of the parrots and other wild birds and the swish of the wind through the mesquite trees outside. I like to imagine that my creations are imbued with the peace in which they are made and hope that this feeling of serenity is tangible to those that experience my work.
