Sheny was born and raised in Guatemala and moved to Houston over 30 years ago. She owned and operated a small boutique, "Guatemala" in Houston's "Rice Village" for over 15 years where she sold arts and crafts from Central and South America. Travelling through out Latin America to fill her store with captivating and unique pieces, Sheny absorbed the extraordinary flavors and colors from the region's many cultures. Today, Sheny translates her love for bold colors and eclectic styles in her metal-smithing and jewelry design.
