I have been working on a custom order that will ship to Mexico City. These are a new version of my old colorful braided chain bracelets. I was commissioned to make 8 as an event gift. They came out great and definitely reflect a lot of my Mexican heritage🙂 Ready to ship.

All custom orders and designs are welcome at all times. Have a great one

I wrote this post, because I thought many of us could use a break of stressing out about our futures, and how to approach it. Its not going to be easy but it gives you hope to know that you can have a plan.

I was interviewed today by Laura form Latinitas,  Latinitas is a foundation that helps little Latinas to grow up into society with a head start. As I was talking to her about her education and plans, and of course my interview, I realized that it is really hard to grow up in depressed society and community. I really appreciate all that Latinitas does for young women in El Paso. I was able to share some of my life experiences and how I was able to break thru a stereotype that society has encrypted for Hispanic women. I think that the hardest part of becoming successful is to open our eyes to society and culture, to find out how we can fit in. And if there is no mold, you should create your own. I mean it in a sense that society has expectations from us, such as getting a corporate job, following others footsteps, social classes etc. I decided to do what I love the most (my family and art), not worrying about how others would view my life.  Not worrying about money. It is unsettling to mold your own path, but I rather struggle doing what I believe in and what I love than to struggle with corporatism and social expectations. People are always looking for the magic trick or the perfect plan to be happy, and many people mistake happiness with a struggle free life, which ends up making them miserable and unhappy.

The way I see it is: that as humans we are always going to have problems, struggles, challenges, drama and everything involved. But it is our choice, we decide what problems we can have or can handle, we can choose how to struggle and how to approach them.

It sounds so simple, but believe me it takes time and patience.

I have had my fare and share of a bad life for some time. And when you are in a dark place, it is very difficult to see the way out. That is until you realize that you don’t have to be there, but the only one that can get you out is yourself.


I believe that my biggest success in the fact that I am doing what I love and that I am extremely happy doing it. I am happy to be able to make smart choices for me, and my family.

It is important to keep in mind that we only have one life. THIS ONE. You are only going to be your age once. What did you picture yourself doing? Are you doing it yet? What needs to happen in order for you to do it? Is there a way to incorporate it into your current life? And Do it.


Being an artist is challenging and exciting, but definitely not corporate friendly, so I encourage young artist not to get disappointed with society, and to create you own mold, to walk you own path with out fear, because when you do what you believe in, you will always have the courage to keep on, keeping on. To be successful as you are doing it, in the NOW, and not to suffer waiting for future things to come. Become young entrepreneurs and build your own names and brands.  There are many people, young artist and art lovers that will always support you. There are other people like us out there, that are happy to give us a helping hand if we need it, we just need to ask.

I have had the pleasure or working alongside with a very beautiful bride to Be in NY.

Liz asked me to design crystal bracelets for her wedding day. I am honored to be part of her big day, and hopefully remind her of such a joyful event, every time she looks at her bracelet.

As my creativity evolves, so does my jewelry line. I have been working hard in getting new materials and new ideas. My ideal piece of jewelry is something that is flattering and soft at the same time. I like big statements but I like subtlety too. So for this months collection I decided to combine all of those characteristics into my work. I am very happy with the end result of the collection. This is just a sneak peak at the entire line. I hope you like it too.

This line of work will be available on Tuesday May 14 at Arlette Accessories Boutique at 501 Texas Ave El Paso TX and online at

What so you think. I personally loved it and will continue to evolve my line🙂

I have just finished all of the Lace Bracelets for Liz, they are nicely packaged in little envelopes with a pink lace knot.

The work-process for these bracelets was very delicate and tedious, they are very elegant and are a great way to tell your friends you appreciate them. They are like the grown up version of todays friendship bracelets, I think they are great.

Sent all the way to NY. I hope everyone enjoys them, And if you want to comment on them please do so🙂 Tell me how much you liked yours❤

Have a great day.
