A Remarkable Woman

Who: Jacqueline Gala
What: Handcrafted Jewelry
Where: Taos, NM
Why: Jacqueline Gala is a featured artist in the The Remarkable Women of Taos, "a year-long celebration honoring outstanding historic and contemporary women of Taos." A resident of the Taos pueblo, Jacqueline learned silversmithing after great success with photography and painting. She follows in the footsteps of legendary jewelers such as Ray Tracey and G. Phil Poirier, but has developed her own style, blending tribal traditions with international influences and beautiful, unusual gems such as Charoite, Dinosaur Bone and Kingman Turquoise. Elegant cultural fusion by a woman of accomplishment...brava!
