As a local designer, Fontera's owner, Fonda, is inspired by nature’s beauty and very aware of its delicate balance. A longtime staple of The Franklin Shops, her ecletic store presents a varied selection of truly unique and artistic lines of jewelry and accessories – each with the conviction to pass on a message of kindness, hope, respect and love. During the rainy season, Fontera offers an art-inspired collection of umbrellas. "I didn't ask for the rain," Fonda jokes. "I just have the best umbrellas."
