Femii98, It will probably take some time here but keep digging. I
would also encourage you to start making some pieces of your own and
selling them at several available venues. Be sure to look at Indian
Jewelers Supply on San Mateo just south of Indian School Rd. They
occasionally have job postings and similar themes as well as info on
shows in the area. You may have to resort to using your other skills
until you find the Job you’re looking for. I would also suggest
looking at the University of New Mexico in the Fine Arts Dept. for
any kind of networking opportunities. I wish I had something more
concrete to offer but keep looking. Your experience and skills
should serve you well in the area. Also look into the Santa Fe and
Taos areas for contacts. Diligence, hopefully will provide what you
are looking for. Good Luck!!
