I approached Mary Lou about creating a custom piece for my husband as a memorial after our daughter passed away. She was so wonderful to work with, responsive in messages, really allowing me to take part in the creative process. She never made me feel not picky for making requests or suggestions. The pendent she made is BEAUTIFUL and my husband loves it. Its a great piece of jewelry for a guy that didn't previously wear anything but a wedding ring. Looks great on him with deep personal meaning. It's exactly what we had talked about and what I had asked for. Excellent artistry and she bent over backwards to mail it to me in the timeline I needed. Great experience, would highly recommend!!!

About

Psychotherapist turns to Jewelry Therapy

After doing psychotherapy for 37 years in Chicago, I retired and returned to my '60's roots of making jewelry. In addition to beading, I've taken classes in silversmithing, PMC/Precious Metal Clay (Fine Silver and Sterling Silver), and lapidary arts in Chicago, IL and in Dubois, Wyoming, where I now reside.

Being surrounded by mountains and abundant wildlife inspires my work. The Wind River runs not too far from our house and the surrounding area is known as "the Valley of the Warm Winds"; thus, the name: Warm Winds Designs. Founded: October 2007.

I'd love it if you would check out my other shop Warm Winds Designs Two for fun and fabulous price conscious jewelry:

Additional policies and FAQs
ABOUT PMC:

Many of my pieces are made of fine silver, that is hand crafted from my original designs in Precious Metal Clay, otherwise known as PMC. Fine Silver is .999 pure silver (vs sterling silver which is .925 pure).

PMC consists of RECYCLED microscopic particles of pure silver suspended in an organic binder which is the consistency of modeling clay. After hand casting, drying and carving the jewelry piece, it is then fired at a high temperature. During firing, the binder burns away and the silver particles fuse, forming Fine Silver (FS .999 pure). All of my PMC pieces are signed, dated, and marked FS .999 on the back. If you have further questions about PMC, please contact me.

As my bio indicates, much of my inspiration is related to the beauty that
surrounds me in Wyoming. The mountains and wildlife are central to my
collection. I also love color and enjoy creating one of a kind jewelry
pieces. In the Rustic Mountain Wildlife, Trout, and Petroglyph
collections, most of the pieces are special orders. As with any hand
crafted work, there will be slight variations, especially in the carved
pieces. You have the advantage of requesting various finishes and color
of beads, if used in a piece. Pieces may be left with a matte finish,
highly polished/shiny, or oxidized with a patina. We can design the piece together to your wishes and specifications. Just let me know.
