About John Atencio:
John Atencio has designed fine jewelry in Colorado for more than 40 years. His first inspired attempt at making jewelry was when he was yet a business student at Colorado State University. He wanted to give his girlfriend a ring. So he made one himself out of silver. He got the girl. It was the first jewelry design Atencio has to his credit. Thousands more follow. Each piece of fine jewelry hand designed by the legendary Atencio has its own compelling story. More distinctive, more personalized than any other jeweler’s designs elsewhere, John Atencio’s fine jewelry is precious and lasting.
About Aubrea Alford:
Aubrea Alford started playing piano at the age of 5 and violin at the age of 8, establishing a strong foundation in classical music. However, it was during college when she fell in love with improvising in jazz, folk, and rock. Since then, she has toured all over the country as an active performer and recording artist, playing violin and piano in various bands, venues, and settings. Aubrea's love of many different genres, along with her vast experience, help create a unique aspect to her parts that will give your music exactly what it craves.
