About Angela

Let me share a little bit about myself with you. I come from a family of talented artisans, and it brings me joy to see the younger generation embracing and expressing their own cultural heritage. Throughout my life, I have always been drawn to creativity. From making quilts and crocheting sweaters to my current fascination with jewelry, I have explored various artistic endeavors. Around 15 years ago, I began selling jewelry and delved into the world of metals, eventually finding my passion in working with sterling silver.

Although I did experiment with Argentinian silver, it proved challenging to acquire in rural areas where I reside. Nonetheless, I greatly admire its qualities, but accessibility became an obstacle for me. It was quite a coincidence when I first started making silver earrings and began showing them to my coworkers. To my surprise, they showed interest and started purchasing them. This encouraged me to further develop my skills and expand my creations. As my interest grew, I decided to take a course on the history and theory of jewelry, delving into the Renaissance period and exploring the rich heritage of my own culture.

I discovered that the traditional royal crowns of kings and queens did not resonate with my own cultural background. Instead, I started incorporating materials like porcupine quills and glass beads to tell my own story. As a Native American woman, now 65 years old, I find great fulfillment in embracing and sharing my cultural heritage. Being a grandmother raising my grandchildren and even having great-grandchildren, I dedicate much of my time to learning more about my roots. Our culture has faced challenges in the past, but its strength and resilience continue to inspire me. Through my jewelry, I aim to convey to others that our traditions are alive and thriving.

For 30 years, I worked in the corporate world, where the pay was good but the satisfaction was lacking. It was when I immersed myself in creating jewelry that I truly felt a sense of accomplishment. Each piece I make carries a part of me, and I take great pride in completing something that will be cherished by a client. My inspiration comes from my daily life and the teachings I’ve received. While I may not be an avid journaler, I find that jewelry serves as a powerful form of self-expression and healing. It brings me immense joy and gratitude to present something meaningful to others, and I often have a particular person in mind as I craft each piece, envisioning them as my ideal clientele.

If you have any specific questions or if there’s anything else you’d like to discuss about your jewelry-making process or anything related, please feel free to ask. I’m here to help and support you!
