Born from my lifelong concern for the Earth and its resources, I share my vision of the healing power of copper and semi-precious stones in art jewelry for you.

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.
Since I created RCF in 2004, my jewelry designs have been featured in Art World News and on PBS TV "Tennessee Crossroads." I will be the featured artist at the Feminine Mystique Art Gallery in Tubac, AZ. in April 2013. My jewelry is shown in the Arizona Collector's Guide and has been chosen for many juried shows.

Life's been a winding road -- isn't it always?
Welcome to my blog, where you'll travel winding roads of fantasy in art jewelry and in life. When I began this journey, I knew there'd be paths diverging in the woods and I'd wonder which one the Fates were marking for my footsteps. But there's always that grand adventure. I'll share a secret -- though I studied art, what I'm creating with my art jewelry is a gift. One morning I awakened from a dream with the concepts as clear as day. When I pick up the stones and wire and begin to work, what happens is something that cannot be explained. It just becomes. And then I know when it's complete. So come travel with me and I'll share the journey.
