About All-a-Glow Artisans of Sedona
All-a-Glow Jewelry began as a hobby in 2005. It is now a full time business, operating from our Boutique Gallery/Gift Shop, “All-a-Glow Artisans of Sedona”, in beautiful Sedona, AZ. Our intention is to create artistic, one-of-a-kind, quality jewelry that consists of necklaces, pendants, bracelets and earrings. We define our jewelry style as “artistic, contemporary and earthy”. Natural stones and pearls enhance each piece which results in a casual elegance theme.
Five different hand woven metal techniques distinguish us as unique jewelry artists. We use sterling, copper, brass and niobium wire for our weaving techniques. We also incorporate quality leather, a variety of natural shells, crystals and unique findings. Pieces are comfortable to wear, durable, and have an appealing design line. Our jewelry line is versatile and resonates with women and men of all ages.
About the Artists
Michael & Glow Mendoza are a husband & wife team. They were born and raised in Santa Barbara, CA. They have known each other since they were ten years old.
Glow has six generations of family in Santa Barbara, CA. Her great grandmother was Chumash Native American. Her grandmother taught Glow how to weave baskets with natural reeds and palm leaves from the California coast. Several of the weaving techniques used in their jewelry designs originated from baskets.
Upon retiring, they relocated and purchased their home in beautiful Sedona, AZ. Glow is a retired Cosmetologist/Salon Owner. She owned and operated a salon spa in Santa Barbara, CA. for twenty five years. It was a natural transition working with hair styling tools to using jewelry-making tools. Her experience with color and design significantly influenced the color combinations in the jewelry. Glow is a natural artist. Using her hands and creating beautiful, unique jewelry is sheer joy!
Michael is a retired commercial driver. He discovered his artistic ability while in retirement. He always had an artistic nature and a keen eye for design. Michael also has an appreciation for nature (i.e., natural stones and pearls). His acute business sense and creative ideas has significantly contributed to the success of our jewelry business. His quick wit and superb people skills make our business a lot of fun!
