Marguerite arrived in Denver when it was a sleepy little town. The gorgeous bright blue skies and star-reaching mountains were a most glorious spot to settle into a life as an artist. After taking a few classes in metal arts, she was drawn to the process, which led her to the colorful world of stones and their intrinsic properties. She has been making her jewelry for the past 40 years along with raising some beautiful girls, who all adore her jewelry.
She helped establish the Boulder Arts and Crafts Gallery in Boulder, CO as a member/owner 35 years ago, and still resides as the Gallery Director, commuting from Denver to Boulder regularly. She is excited to be opening another space that is closer to home with a similar concept.
When Marguerite is not in her studio with her rocks, she can be found in the dirt planting her vegetables.

She was thrilled to have found this historic building on Colfax and breathe new life into it.
