Dora Gonzalez is a native born Texan who fell in love with the Ozark Mountains and settled in the town of Fox, Arkansas over 12 years ago. During her time in Texas Dora and her family owned and operated a traveling arts and crafts business, which offered a distinct Native American style of merchandise.
Shortly after moving to Arkansas Dora set aside the crafting business and began a new way of working with her hands. She is a licensed massage therapist, operating Bear Paw Massage in Mountain View, Arkansas. Then, in 2015, Dora embarked on a recreational crystal digging trip in southern Arkansas, unearthing numerous quartz crystals and reawakening her passion for creating art.
Since then, she has dedicated most of her free time to turning the crystal finds into stunning wire wrapped jewelry for all to enjoy. These beautiful pieces of quartz crystal art incorporate a timeless simplicity while retaining Dora’s signature Native American style.
