Pam grew up in Santa Barbara near the ocean, rode horses and helped her Mom with her poodle skirt business. She spent years traveling the country, then ranching in Texas—cattle and Arabian horses. After showing Arabian horses nationally with her son, she then moved back to the Santa Fe area, where she had lived in the 1960’s. She always loved turquoise, and her family collected Navajo and Zuni pieces since the early 1900’s. She began to make jewelry and sell it at the Tesuque Flea Market, but found that she could not get the kind of silver findings she liked, so she made her own designs. She now sells her jewelry, beads, and findings to galleries and designers all over the world.
