Look at the amazing pieces I took home!! The print is by Carmen and I decided to purchase it as a gift for Allan. The 2 ceramic pieces are by another local artist, Monaeka Flores. I have a large painting of her's hanging in my living room. :) The red necklace is by Carmen. She makes such unique pieces! My mom bought me this since it matched the dress I was wearing The orange bead and seed necklace is by Mama Jill. Mama Jill is a master carver and just a really beautiful person. She does so much to encourage the preservation and appreciation of our culture.
I had a really awesome night, but I'm a little sad. I wish Carmen could stay longer or I wish I had met her sooner. She tells the funniest stories and has such amazing energy. She has so much to share and teach and she's not stingy with her stories, talent, or heart. We love her very much and wish her all the best!
