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 others.
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.
The fair provides an exciting opportunity for associates and their families to share the fruits of their creative labor with the the rest of us here at Rio. Here are a few of the lovely things I saw at this year’s fair:
What a privilege and a pleasure it is to have a view inside the talented minds of my fellow associates.
