Laurie Long, a Colorado Springs native who for the last 10 years has been living in Bali, Indonesia, honing her trade of jewelry design and creation, is back in town.
Her handmade jewelry will be available June 14 to June 30 at the Squash Blossom at 2531 W. Colorado Ave., and at the Cogswell Gallery in Vail. A grand opening will be 2 to 6 p.m. June 14 at the Squash Blossom.
This is the first time the jewelry maker has had a display in Colorado Springs, and she said she's happy to reconnect with old friends and make some new ones.
