Associates here at Rio Grande are a diverse and talented bunch. My fellow associates have passions that include jewelry making, photography, leather tooling, painting, fabric-crafting and many more. Shannon Demoulin, a graduate gemologist who works on Rio’s Gemstones Team is also a painter and jeweler, and it was her vision ten years ago that Rio should host an annual Rio Grande Associate Arts and Crafts Fair. Every year since, it’s been Shannon’s dedication and energy that has made the event possible. . .
