ARTISAN STORY When Kristen Welch, MHG Founder, visited her friend Sancha for chai tea, Sancha commented on the polymer earrings Kristen was wearing. Kristen and her daughters had been experimenting with clay. She took off an earring and placed it into Sancha’s hand. Sancha turned it over in her palm, studying it closely and said, “I would like to learn to make these.” Her curiosity, eye for detail and determination helped Sancha quickly surpass her teacher and today, she is a skilled polymer artist. Sancha is from the war-torn country of Bhutan, her family was sent to a refugee camp in Nepal 20 years ago for and she came to the United States with her husband in 2012 and lives in a refugee community in Houston.
