It’s been a hard past couple weeks. All my energy has been focused on family and restoring balance and light in our home. Nothing like this ray of sunshine- La Beautiful chingona @jboogiemontano 🌞 Rocking my newest Frida inspired bling all the way in Cali to help bring back my creative fire. Gracias/ tlazocamati hermana! .

Happy birthday Frida/ Feliz Cumple Friducha!!! "I used to think I was the strangest person in the world but then I thought there are so many people in the world, there must be someone just like me who feels bizarre and flawed in the same ways I do. I would imagine her, and imagine that she must be out there thinking of me too. Well, I hope that if you are out there and read this and know that, yes, it's true I'm here, and I'm just as strange as you." Frida Kahlo. ✨


Thank you Frida for all that you were, all that you have taught me and the way you continue to inspire me almost everyday 💛.

I’ve shared this on my stories but I was waiting for it to heal before I posted about it here. I’m so in love with my new piece of art by the amazing @billybaca on my left forearm. Living in TX now She’s only in town visiting until August! DM her if your interested in her work- she has a guest spot @leviticustattoo while she is here. I highly recommend her as her talent and attention to detail is beyond amazing! She custom designed this piece for me based off of my explanation of what the Sacred heart and the turquoise fire means to me. Stay tuned for the awesome custom piece I got to create for her in return 💛. Gracias, tlazocamati, Thank You Billy! ✨

Got some nice healed pics of this sacred heart and turquoise flame! This was such a fun and special piece to work on, thank you @marisamartinezjewelry ❤️

Sacred Turquoise Fire. The fire that emanates from your heart that lives within all of us. The fire in the stars in the sky, the fire in the earth. The fire of the God of gods. Our life force. *

Growing up I learned of a Christian God. I was taught about Christ’s undying love and compassion for his people. That he died for me to live. Christ has been my spiritual father, my confidant, my example of how to live and love. As a child growing up without my own mother or father for most of my life. I was raised by abuelos, grandmothers, grandfathers, aunts, uncles, tías, tíos, foster families, and other people I did and didn’t know. I had people but I always felt lost and alone. I felt abandoned and so about to give up on life I turned to God as a teenager and Asked why? He told me that he was sorry I was suffering that he loved me, that I was not alone and that I had a choice and basically that I had everything I needed inside of me. I chose that day to believe him and move forward with my life and chose to live and not give up. I have made that choice over and over again through out my life. The Christ I know assures me I am loved and accepted as I am. Unconditionally. The fire he has in his heart comes from God. It is the same as mine. It’s in all of us. In every living thing. No matter our race, creed, religion, sexual orientation, background. That is what I believe. *

As an adult I have learned and uncovered much of my indigenous history and culture. I am learning what my ancestors believed. Sacred teachings that actually have helped me understand better who I am and especially about this sacred fire that comes from the God of gods and lives at the center of everything. I believe it is the same thing. The flame that burns within our hearts that at times is raging and at other very dim. We have the choice in our actions towards others, the way we walk in the world and the ways we feed and nurture our souls. We have this gift and it is a choice every day. *
*

This ring is about that sacred fire. A calling to burn brightly. To grow other flames. To bring more light to the world. Right now and everyday. Because we all desperately need it.

More Frida inspired earrings in assorted sizes in process for this coming weekend’s Edina’s Art Fair. I burn my paper templates off these as a ritual of sorts while I play “Burn it Blue,” from the Frida movie soundtrack. Those of you who have seen the movie will understand. If you haven’t seen it- please do! @salmahayek plays Frida in this beautiful account of her time here on Earth. These earrings are labor of love infused with a Spirit of a different time and place. Hope you can come experience them in person next weekend.

Numbers came in at over 30,000 people that attended the crawl this year and I for one felt it. We had a steady flow of people @cgsolararts. Thank you to my tribe of collectors and supporters that follow my work and to the new people as well, your support means so much to all of us artists trying to make it out here. Thank you to my helpers- my boys, Taylor @taylor_hepner , Cynthia @cynwelle and my Sister @lizmartinez519 for helping me pull it all together!

Spring: the perfect time to anticipate growth and celebrate rebirth! After a long winter of all going dormant we look forward to the buds of life starting to blossom and awaken not only in the plants and trees but also with in our hearts and minds and bodies. Hopes and dreams and intentions for this growing season and future harvest. Reflecting on the “darkness” we survived in the winter and making offerings of “flowers” with our ceremonies and actions in gratitude for new beginnings, healing and continued growth. These Xochitl(flower) rings symbolize this process and serve as a reminder that there is always light after the dark. That every spring we too get to be reborn and have a new chance to blossom and grow. I love wearing mine to remind me! Thank you to everyone who has ordered one of these special rings. And to @vero19 who owns this very special piece. I really love the stone you picked out! 💛💛💛

My day was so full I didn’t get a chance to compile and post some pics of our day! We spent our day with some of my favorite mamas💛💛💛Happy belated Mother’s Day to all the mamas doing the hardest job out there. 💛💛💛I’m so honored to walk this path with so many amazing people who are mothers not only because they carried a child in their womb, but more importantly because they choose to do the work of mothering. Thank you to my Tomasito y Mateo- My Son, my moon and my stars. They are my reason for everything. Thank you to my tribe of family and friends who help make this journey a little lighter. We all need, love, help, support, consejos, and encouragement to do this job of raising children. I’m so grateful for you! 💛🌺🌷💗🌞🌜✨
