Ace McCasland

Photo of Ace McCasland

Ace, of Studio Luna Verde, wandered (and settled) into the shadow of the Rocky Mountains in Colorado after many years of exploring and hiking and driving all over the western U.S., living in beautiful locations like Point Arena, California / Moab, Utah / Flagstaff, Arizona. Experiences have included driving 1950s-era tour buses for Green Tortoise Adventure Travel / performing for a year with a three-ring circus / hiking into (and out of) the Grand Canyon so many times she’s lost count / living out of a ’72 Toyota Landcruiser for three (and a half) years while exploring the U.S. / and failing miserably at surfing on the Sea of Cortez in Baja California. She loves spicy chocolate, and lightening storms. Her largest creation thus far is having built her own studio, where she currently makes her eclectic jewelry and unabashedly embraces the art of imperfection.
