“Master Jeweler Gabriel Abrums (1976-present) hand forges highly sought after natural stones into pieces of poignant presence, wanted memory enduring hope, healing energy and eternal love.”
– Ramsey Scott
Gabe Abrums, and wife Alicia, are the owners of Chimayo Trading Del Norte, St. Francis Plaza, in Ranchos De Taos.
Gabe and his family have been in the business of Fine Art for over 30 years, with a sister company owned and operated by John Abrums, his father,(Chimayo Trading and Merchantile, located in Chimayo NM). He has been featured in many articles of Taos Magazine and was invited to the Taos Fall Arts Festival in 2007 as one of the Taos Living Masters.
Inspired by his father, he began his jewelry career at age 14. Gabe’s grandfather was a turquoise cutter and trader and through him he learned to identify high quality turquoise and other stones. His style consists of a finely inlaid mosaic of only the finest stones, many of which came from his grandfathers collection and are no longer available.
