This past weekend Rob treated me to a Santa Fe weekend for my birthday. We decided to drive and see all the beautiful scenery on the way to our destination. Since it’s a tad cooler up there it was also awesome to get out of our heat for a few days. It was an amazing trip that included white water rafting on the Rio Grande. Here a few photos of our getaway.
This pic is high up at the Sante Fe ski basin. The views are absolutely stunning.
Santa Fe is an amazing artist’s community. Venture down Canyon Rd. and you can see the most incredible art galleries in the country. Understandably…. you can’t take pictures in the galleries so I got what I could outside.
There are great restaurants, shops and old churches to see.
Our hotel lobby was so romantic at night. It made our days of sightseeing a cozy place to land.
Santa Fe is definitely a place to go if you haven’t been. We thoroughly enjoyed it and plan on a Winter trip there. 🙂

I’ve been working hard in my studio making a variety of new things. I’ve also been taking some excerpts of my paintings and adding them into some of my pendants. This necklace has a painting of mine and is reversible as you will see in the next photo. Two for the price of one….:). I’ve also oxidized the chain and clasp to give it an edgy look.
It looks great on. I’ve made a few of these pieces using other paintings. It’s fun to see my artwork combined with my jewelry.
I really enjoy making rings. I’m purposely not making them in my small size so I don’t end up keeping them all…lol. These are the two latest.
Bangles are now in the mix. There was a ton of hammering to these two….so much so that I thought my tennis elbow was coming back.
I have yet to decide on leather cord or silver chain for this sterling pendant. It has a nice size to it plus it’s a heavy gauge silver. I think it might look great sitting on the chest.
You can find these items at my Etsy shop. Come by and take a look.
I’ll post new pieces, paintings and tutorials soon. Hope to see you then!!
