Sally is a graduate of the University of New Mexico with a BAFA with emphasis in metals. Though she thinks of herself as mostly self-taught--starting out at an early age with the encouragement of her blacksmith father and taking workshops and classes when possible. She has had a working studio since the age of 15 and has been designing, crafting and selling jewelry for the last 35 years.
She also earned and received her Graduate Gemologist degree from GIA in 2009. She collects, refurbishes and sells antique jewelry as well.
Sally values craftsmanship and quality over quantity. "I prefer to design and make unique and beautiful pieces of art that I love and know that the people who collect my work will love."
