Closer to the final design

Making progress on Pretty Woman pendant and earring set for the Blue Suede event.

Creating lovely set for Blue Suede auction

The Exchange Club/Carl Perkins Center for the Prevention of Child Abuse has always been close to my heart because they help so many children and families. So I'm working on this set for the upcoming Blue Suede dinner and auction that features Diamond Rio for entertainment. The set of earrings and pendant will include amethyst for spiritual courage, fluorite for genius and creativity, peridot for spring, a bit of shell for sailing through life, and a gem of labradorite to see through illusions. I'm calling it Pretty Woman. It will be worn on silk designer ribbon, so soft against the skin.

Sherry Blackford loves her pin

I created my first jacket pin for Sherry Blackford of labradorite and green tourmaline. Sherry picked out the stone and commissioned the piece. The pin is made of labradorite, a powerful stone that allows the wearer to shape dreams and goals and to strengthen intuition. Green tourmaline brings joy, patience and openness. The stones are a perfect choice for Sherry. And she just picked out labradorite for matching earrings! She loves to dig for stones, so we've told our husbands we're going on a dig for a vacation.

Working on matching pendant

The bracelet in the featured photo will soon be joined by the pendant I'm working on and earrings. I've promised to send them to a gallery owner in Denver. My rep in Denver will take the package over. This set will be for a woman who enjoys wearing powerful jewelry -- fuchsite for intuition and problem solving, carnelian for physical energy, and shells for travels on the sea of life.

Reconfigured Art Jewelry brings joy

Holding a serpentine stone in my hand, I reach for copper to wrap it, realizing that each piece will become what it is meant to be. I cannot tell you how it will end, but it will be beautiful to someone who feels the music and the joy I put into the creating of it.
