I am constantly awed by the act of creation, how it brings forth its own universe and transcends definition. As an artist, musician, full-time jewelry designer and creative entrepreneur on Guam, I am a co-owner of Blue Amber Trio, a business that focuses on gemstones and handcrafted gifts. I am currently investigating ways to collaborate with artisans around the world and nonprofits to create unique wearable, while also giving back to the community. (www.blueambertrio.com). Nurturing the creative in each of us has become a recent focus of my work, which can be found through my weekly column in the Guam Sunday Post, "Create It with A. Word" (www.createitdiy.com)
Collaboration is at its core.
