Artist Spotlight: Judy Wright

Judy Wright fell in love with the welding torch in college but (for practical reasons) went on to a career as an English teacher and later a counselor. Nearing retirement from Fulton Co. Schools (GA) she enrolled in a metalsmithing course and rediscovered her love of metals and tools used in crafting metal jewelry.

She has been making jewelry for 10 years, and her one-of-a-kind pieces are highly sought after.  For three years she traveled via motorhome (thus the shop's original name, Jaded Goats Mobile Studio), participating in art/craft shows across the country.  Now she divides her time between her Santa Fe home and her motorhome here in San Felipe.  Judy -- and her shop, JudithGayleDesigns -- are excited about a second year of participating in the San Felipe Blues & Arts Festival.  You may preview her work at
