My Story: My studio sits in the Foothills of Tucson, Arizona, where I find my inspiration every day. I love the colors and the textures from nature that surround me and try to recreate the desert in my glass and jewelry. I love gemstones and rocks of all colors and shapes. And I handmake my glass beads and cabochons with a technique called lampworking.
The Stone: The stone is actually a glass cabochon created in the flame using techniques that are thousands of years old. It is a transparent turquoise.
The color turquoise is considered sacred here in the American Southwest.
The Setting: The glass is prong set into sterling silver. Hanging are organically shaped sterling silver paperclips.
This pair: These earrings are one of a kind.
The glass cab is round and measures 1cm The earrings hang approximately 2inches from a sterling silver shepherd's hook.
