Rustic Hand Crafted Jewelry

southwinddesign is taking a short break.

I recently accepted an offer to go back to teaching history at a local middle school and I'll also be teaching part time at California State University, Long Beach in the American Indian Studies department. Because I am deeply invested in creating meaningful learning experiences for my students, it is time for me to transition out of my etsy shops. I am considering re-opening my shop with items that are ready to ship. However, for the next couple of months my shop will be closed entirely as I re-immerse myself into teacher life!

Many, many thanks to all etsy supporters!

southwinddesign's Shop Announcement

Rustic antiqued copper to sleek, modern jewelry in bright and oxidized sterling silver -- Capturing the vibrance of bass-filled urban dwellings and the humble warmth of Indian country's open stretches, South Wind Design is where Native traditions and city life meet.

The variety of items available in my shop will vary, depending my inspiration. At times, you'll see my shop dominated by earthy, feminine and delicately crafted contemporary jewelry with just enough edge for a stong-spirited woman to intricately stiched Native American applique beadwork. Check back often, as you never know when the tides will shift!
