I am excited to launch my very first collection. Since retiring from the corporate world earlier this year, I have immersed myself in learning more about jewelry design and honing my jewelry making skills. It has been a wonderful journey and I am looking forward to vending at art and craft fairs in the near future.
The Fall collection is a cumulation of colors, stones, and materials inspired from my travels this summer out West. My sweetheart and I bought this blank canvas of a cargo van and converted it into our very own rendition of a gypsy vardo wagon-style camper. Then we took off toward Colorado and the Dakotas.
There are two distinct collections called "Rain" and "Badlands." The colors in the “Rain” Collection reflect the blue of the water flowing through the Uncompahgre River between Red Mountain Pass and Ridgway Reservoir, and the beautiful grays and blacks found in the Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park. The sterling silver and pewter accents inspired by the Ouray Sliver Mines.
The “Badlands” Collection draws on the naturally stunning marvel of colors found in the Badlands of South Dakota. The Badlands are a wonderland of colorful spires and pinnacles, massive buttes and deep gorges. Erosion of the land over time reveals sedimentary layers of gorgeous natural colors including tan, gray, violet, yellow, red, orange and white, which I’ve weaved into the “Badlands” jewelry designs.
I hope you like them all. Feel free to reach out to me at any time if you would like a custome piece designed just for you.
