My love for turquoise began with a goal - to get Mom through her chemotherapy treatment for triple-negative breast cancer. As we settled into that infusion room for another long day, her exact words were "I just need a little something to look forward to".
We planned a trip to a place we'd never been, but one that would be easy to cancel in case she wasn't up for it - and found ourselves in the tiny town of Truth or Consequences, NM (T or C to the locals).
These trips (15 years strong!) fueled a passion for Native American jewelry and turquoise in particular, that only strengthens with every trip back. Every piece I select is an authentic, handmade, Native American work-of-art, with a penchant for vintage.
As my line has grown, I've added clothing and accessories that reflect my personal style - unique, colorful and not for the faint-of-heart!
My favorite thing about The Arbors is the shoppers - I have regular customers that come to me looking for the one thing that they didn't know they needed. And when they find it - goosebumps!
