My jewelry has been sold at Nedra matteucci gallery in Santa Fe New Mexico for the last 18 years. At this time I have my Gallery in my home in San Miguel De Allende Mexico.
I work in ebony that I get from my trips to Cuba and I by red amber and very rarely do I get green amber from the southern part of Mexico,I also use the famous mexican fire opals and the legal ivory thats comes from the wolly mammoth which is extint animal.
I like my style to be timeless but at the same time unique and exciting, jewelry that can be worn in formal as well incasual settings.
