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 for this collection I have chosen some very special stones. I have a bad habit of buying beautiful stones and then hoarding them for that very special piece. Well, the day has arrived and I have created some pieces that allow these gemstone beads to shine.
The Stones: I create this style with many different stones - all of the highest quality that I purchase at the Tucson Gem and Jewelry Shows each February. This pair has Sleeping Beauty turquoise beads.
The Setting: Sterling silver wire. Each piece is unique and crafted with attention to detail. As with all handmade items there will be variations.
