Happy to be back in her home state of NM, Gordene has received awards for her college teaching, her work as radio talk show host & producer, and for her activism.

One of Matthew Mitchell’s hawks visits with Gordene in Bosquecito, south of Socorro, NM.

Gordene sells at the Los Ranchos Art Market (1st & 3rd Saturdays May-November) and at other arts and crafts shows. She also shows her jewelry in galleries/shops in Albuquerque, Los Ranchos and out of state.

My wild drawings are inspired by my love for animals.

My Bird on Top of the World pendants incorporate birds (or other animals) sitting atop various stones.  When you wear your Bird on Top of the World pendant, hopefully you too will feel like a Bird on Top of the World!
