Brand new multi-strand necklace in my shop this week!


The Tribal Road

My passion is tribal jewelry. I also create rustic southwestern and sometimes primitive pieces, but tribal jewelry is my true love. Time worn African trade beads, hand cast brass beads, bone beads; I can't get enough of them. The old beads and the new beads each tell their own story. Some have adorned many people. They have traveled great distances. And now I can use them as part of my own creations. I feel it is preserving a bit of history in a piece of earthy art jewelry.

Ceramic, lampwork glass, and ancient looking metal components from contemporary artisans are also a major facet of my designs. This mixing of the new with the old is appealing to me. There is something magical about this blending, and thus retelling of the story in a new way.
