Owner of Natural Accents Gallery
Natural Accents Gallery introduced itself to the Taos area in 2001 as a jewelry shop next to the Trading Post Restaurant, featuring the work of Sigrid Long and her Sister Kim Erixon.
Seeking more foot traffic, Sigrid moved the gallery in 2003 to 105 Paseo del Pueblo Norte, just outside the Taos Plaza, and further solidified Natural Accents Gallery as a Top Fine Arts Gallery in Taos. Twelve years later, when Taos Mountain Outfitters moved, Sigrid jumped at the chance to get in on the inside of the town’s commercial center, therefore she moved the gallery into the Historic Taos Plaza. In 2017 the Gallery was moved to 103 Paseo del Pueblo Norte, just adjacent to the Taos Plaza's main entrance. This new gallery location provides more space to display the artists works that so many visitors to the gallery have come to enjoy.
The Gallery Collection remains diverse, sophisticated and as accomplished as ever.
A staple from the beginning is Sigrid Long’s hand-crafted jewelry which can be found throughout the gallery. These fine pieces feature stunning designs using top quality, and very unusual stones.
Sigrid Long has been coming to Taos since she was a teenager and in 2001 decided to make it her home. Sigrid is an extremely savvy business woman and outstanding fine custom jewelry designer.
“I am so lucky to have so many loyal clients,” said Sigrid. “They have kept the business going during economic downturn and bought what they didn’t need … at full price, to help keep the doors open. Many of the same buyers still patronize Natural Accents Gallery.”
Sigrid believes that the 2008 crash had an upside around the local area: “It opened doors for the new and the different in Taos. In a way, it was a good thing,” she said. “There was a broadening of the market, with a new generation that has brought in new styles.”
Now, with a fresh location and evolving array of artists and media, the Natural Accents Gallery in Taos appears to be showing the way into a New Generation for Art and Artists.

Sigrid Long has a long and dedicated history of designing fine custom jewelry and exhibiting some of the finest art works from around the world and throughout the Southwest. In an interview with the Taos News when asked how Sigrid Long had succeeded in the fine art gallery business since 2001, Sigrid paused for a moment, then responded, “Tenacity and hard work.”
“I have always worked hard to improve the quality of the art and jewelry in the gallery. I really wanted to be sure that the art would be appealing to locals and out of town visitors as well. I want visiting the Natural Accents Gallery to be a fun and unique experience for all.”
