If there is perfection - then this pendant portrays it perfectly!! I am beyond happy with my purchase; truly did not expect it to be so beautiful and so huge in size. Not to mention that it was shipped super fast and in secure packaging. Thank you so much!! I'll definitely be back for more....😁

Shipping was fast and the item well packaged. The cross itself is a little heavy but so unique. There are several ways to wear the necklace. Just an incredibly unique and beautiful necklace.

About

California Girl goes Southwest!

Born and raised in Southern California, I am definitely a "Sun and Sand" girl. After college, I married and my husband "dragged" me to New Mexico for work. I've been here 18+ years now. New Mexico is now home. It's colors and culture inspire me every day: green mountains (golden in fall), winter white, blue lakes and skies, golden sunshine, clear skies, red mesas, colorful wild flowers, and warm desert sands. I also enjoy traveling and the cultures of distant (and not-so-distant) locals also inspire me. Of course, I will never forget the colors of California: oceans, beaches, mountains, cities. Those colors inspire me, as well.

Rocks: Since living in NM I've developed an interest in stones: especially geodes, turquoise, and agates. Also in found objects and metals. How is it that objects I once paid no attention to, now fascinate me?!? Perhaps it is my boys' influence: they started putting stones in their pockets from the moment they learned to walk. Either way, I like my jewelry's focus to be the stones and beads; not elaborate wire working. I design pendants that highlight and draw attention to each stone's intrinsic, natural beauty. This is one reason you won't fine any intricate wire work/wire wrapping in my store.

Color: I've always been drawn to it. Jewelry is the perfect way for anyone to wear color, even if your wardrobe is mostly neutral. Color is great in the fall and winter when we tend to wear darker clothes and it's perfect in the spring and summer when nature emerges around us. Colorful necklaces and earrings especially draw others' attention to you and your face, which is what we all want.

Interest: Interesting lines and "simple" ornamentation draw me. I've never been an ornate kind of person. I love a sofa with a gorgeous curved back or a long table with elements of natural wood. You won't find intricate or elaborate wire wrappings here. You will find simple, interesting lines that enhance the beauty of the focal stone rather than draw attention away from the stone to the wire wrapping. This is intentional and by design.

Movement: Jewelry should be fun, and what's more fun than movement? I love a long necklace with a "bojangle" or earrings that sway naturally as I walk. Maybe something that "tinkles" or "jingles" slightly as I move. Fun!

I especially love making necklaces. I really like to make unique, one of a kind (OOAK) pieces that you won't see "just anywhere." I want each piece to be a creative work of art that you will be proud to wear and NEVER see another person wearing. I believe in using "natural" materials from metal to 100% wool/linen/hemp fibers, glass and stone. I also make my own clay beads which, like nature, are never perfectly symmetric, but are visually interesting, fun, and colorful!

I hope you love my designs, too.

    I spent my youth creating art. Raising a family put it "on hold" but now I'm back to my roots. I like to create unique OOAK pieces & it thrills me to know you wear them, enjoy them and looking beautiful in them!
