About

Indigenous Inspiration.

My interest in tribal jewelry began decades ago in the gift shop of Disney World's Jungle Cruise. There I purchased an African necklace that was like nothing I'd ever seen before. The beads were primitive, chunky, and mysterious. I wasn't sure what they were. Research revealed trade beads, copal amber, recycled glass; and other wonders. |Today I look for beads and pendants that rekindle the feeling of discovery my African necklace gave me. Often I will save a bead or beads for years until I find the perfect fit. There are no rules in tribal jewelry. Anything can become a component if you value it's unique beauty.

My other inspiration is the jewelry that Frida Kahlo wears in her wonderful self portraits. Her jewelry speaks of her spirit .That's what a favorite piece of jewelry or accessory should do for you. -- capture a piece of your soul.
