Fay West's Profile
As you can see from my designs, I LOVE Turquoise and all the colors of the desert Southwest. It truly got into my blood at childhood when as a family we traded with the Navajo and Zuni Native American Indian tribes of New Mexico and Arizona.
Although the Tribes I belong to remain a mystery, we have narrowed it down to Pueblo and/or Apache. My husband is Cherokee.
Oklahoma has been my home for the past 35 years and so I have also been inspired by the diversity of the local Native American Indian Tribes surrounding me.
Although I do love the look and feel of genuine stones, one of my passions has been the "look" of southwestern and Mediterranean patterns in ceramics, rugs, and iron decor. In my designs I try to recreate those designs that inspire me so much.
Hope you enjoy my shop!
