Please check my shipping policies! I live a half hour from the closest town and post office. No mail delivery here! Because of the distance, I don't get to town every day. Also, some of the roads I drive don't get plowed if it snows. On the flip time of year raging rivers may block my drive into town - no bridges on those same non plowed roads. BUT, none of that happens that often so MOST times your purchase will get off to you in one or two days. Getting your purchases to you is a priority, I just won't risk my life. :)

I love to do custom orders - convo me about details.

About BurroMountainStudio

On Etsy since 2010

A love of the southwest and all things natural

Throughout my life I have had a passion for making and creating things AND I've always loved rocks.

In my youth you would find me looking for agates on the shores of Lake Superior. I was even attracted to the plain looking wave shaped rocks covering the shore.

I've left collections of rocks wherever I've lived. If you ever visit me in New Mexico you will see piles of rocks littered throughout our yard left over from every rock hounding trip I've taken in this area.

I come home from vacations with bags of rocks that I intend to use in jewelry. (Peek in my studio closet!)

My stone buying trips are as much fun as my rock hounding trips..

Two things sparked my passion for designing and creating jewelry. The first was a short class on making earrings at a local bead store in Silver City, NM shortly after I moved here.

The second thing was a friend in Louisiana handing me a handful of gar (fish) scales and asking if I could make some earrings for her. Those two experiences and the fact that I had recently retired from my elementary teaching job all ignited that passion!

I've also had a big love for the outdoors. I've spent many hours hiking, biking, backpacking, rock hounding, canoeing and kayaking in many beautiful outdoor spaces.

I hope to bring some of the beauty Mother Nature has provided into my jewelry designs. I also always loved southwest and native designs. Moving to a beautiful spot in the southwest has increased that love.

The jewelry I create is mainly casual in design. I also don't add a lot of "fluff" to my designs. I go for a more simple design that doesn't take your eye away from the beauty of the stone. It's really all about the stone. Most pieces I design are pieces you would like to wear every day and not just on special occasions.

I like to use leather, natural gemstones, and seed beads. I like to create with wire wrapping, my bead loom and through bead weaving. I find my work is continually evolving as I develop my style.

My studio is in the beautiful Burro Mountains just outside of Silver City, NM. I work in a wonderful private space. It's actually our guest house. It's a place I can't wait to get away to. I love to lose myself in creating with so many wonderful materials.

My work table has a wonderful view of the distant mountains and my bird feeders which are constantly full of life. I'm often surprised when I look up to see several deer, fox, javalina or some unusual bird just feet from my window.

Besides selling my jewelry creations here on Etsy, I'm active in the local arts community. I sell at the local farmer's market and other festivals, rock and gem shows statewide.

Shipping
I want to get your purchase to you as soon as I'm able! I have a few reasons that may not always be possible. For one, I live 20 miles from the nearest post office and mail delivery. Since I live in the middle of nowhere, the mailman does not deliver to my house! Because I use 1st class USPS for shipping, all orders will be shipped as soon as possible within 1 to 3 business days. Bad weather may delay shipment as the roads I must travel part of the way are not plowed or may be blocked by intermittent streams! No bridges on roads in the high desert.

I also travel part of the year via RV and will mail as soon as possible when on the road. All that said, I will email you as to when I expect to put your purchase in the mail. Most times it will be the next business day.

If you would like your package to be expedited, please select between the shipping options available at checkout.

While my shop will usually remain open while I am traveling, all expedited shipping options will be removed from checkout. I will also clearly state that shipments will be delayed in my Welcome Message and when you can expect shipment.

>>>>>INTERNATIONAL ORDERS<<<<<
FOR THE PRESENT - INTERNATIONAL ORDERS ARE NOT BEING ACCEPTED.

Let me know if you have any questions, I will be happy to answer them for you.
