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.

Jazz 'n Gems with Jacque is my new fab fete
My fellow charter members and good friends in the Hatchie Bottom Diva Society said they love looking at my gemstones, discussing their meanings and selecting the ones meant for them. Next step: A friend stopped by to pick up her commissioned jewelry, drink wine and share hors d'oeuvres (well, pizza! but with good friends, doesn't matter if it's fancy or plain.) Now there's a name for dropping in, sharing dessert and a good wine, and picking out favorite gems -- it's called Jazz 'n Gems with Jacque. You missed key lime pie with strawberries, fudge pirouettes and wine, with smooth jazz. I just wanted to share a tablescape view! Can't wait 'til next time!
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.
Auctioned at The Jackson Symphony's Crystal Ball: Necklace, pendant, earrings, bracelet of black-gold amazonite and the luster of labradorite with the power of copper and silver
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.
