“True Happiness” is from her FTDs series of brooches, “hybrid abstractions of traditional flower corsages and medicinal herbs,” as she describes it. The series’ name plays on two meanings of FTD: Most recognizable is the flower-delivery company, but in the psychiatric world, FTD stands for formal thought disorderdisorganized thinking that manifests as disordered speech”all the more apropos of the botanical inspirations of aphrodisiacs and psychotropic plants” in the series, she says. As for her work becoming part of LACMA’s permanent collection: “I relocated to the West Coast seven years ago for my current teaching position at SDSU, and I am still acclimating!” Sherman says. “So having a piece acquired by LACMA actually made me feel more at homesome sense of being represented in a public collection as a San http://www.chicemma.com Diego resident and participating in the regional scene.” Michell Galindo / Gala is Love : Galindo, a Tijuana native, says jewelry making started as a hobby, after her mom gave her a piece of pink quartz as a Valentine’s Day gift. “I started playing with it with a metal hanger for clothes, and I made a big and bold ring that caught the attention of everybody every time I wore it,” she says. In 2003, she left her 9-to-5 corporate job in Tijuana to pursue jewelry design full-time. Galindo (whose Instagram feed is an eye-candy collection of her designs and inspiration) says this earcuff was inspired by a fern at the entrance to her mom’s house. “She always says, ‘Ferns welcome good luck.'” She named the piece after her mom, Gloria. Galindo has showrooms in Tijuana and Mexico City, and her designs have been featured in the Mexican editions of Vogue, Elle and Nylon.
