For over 30 years, Southwestern Expressions has specialized in unique art, home décor, fabulous jewelry and customer service. This family-owned shop is a favorite for locals and travelers. Monty Coates, long-time local and owner explains, “We are a traditional mom-and-pop, brick-and-mortar retailer. Main Street offers a unique venue for small businesses as visitors enjoy strolling and shopping as part of their experience.
Monty and his wife, Kelley, take a hands-on custom approach to adding designers into Southwestern Expressions. When they met Anna Balkan at a show in Philadelphia, they fell in love with her use of color and beautiful designs.
Handcraft ed necklaces, earrings, bracelets and rings designed by Anna Balkan are artful conversation pieces, made with the finest natural semi-precious gemstones and pearls from around the world.
Native to the Chernobyl area of the Ukraine, Anna taught herself the art of resourcefulness. Anna crafted her first piece at the age of five. She used homemade clay and repurposed rhinestones from a dress to design earrings for her mother. Now, Anna uses color and texture boldly in her designs. With a base of 14k gold-filled and sterling silver metals, her collections showcase unique color combinations with classic and elegant elements making them timeless.
This season, her Russian, Pop Art, Twilight, Geisha, Paris and Blue Ice collections will celebrate the unique style of winter in the mountains, but transcend into all seasons with their customized seasonal designs to suit all styles.
