About the Artists

 

 
Where it all Started

Cousins Glena and Sabrina grew up in Logan, a small town in rural New Mexico, population 500. The most entertaining activities in this rural area were swatting flies on their great grandmotherís porch, building miniature houses out of rocks and bits of glass, and searching for the perfect smooth stone. Their great grandmother led them to explore a world of tiny hidden treasures, investigate abandoned houses and frontier dumps, while encouraging them to fill their pockets with sticks, stones, glass, feathers, and flowers.

 

Eventually, Sabrina and Glena each followed their own professional interests: Sabrina concentrated on art and graphic design, while Glena pursued business and education.  Ultimately, the two combined their love of family heirlooms, antique finds, and time-worn treasures with their experience in the fields of art and business to start a company of their own, Pick Up Sticks Jewelry Co. LLC.  What started as a new business venture has become a way for the cousins to revisit their past and those times spent with their great grandmother in a small town.  Now Sabrina and Glena invite others to preserve their own memories via the photo charms and unique jewelry designs incorporating antique sentiment and collectible items.
