Blue Shadow

Blue Shadow

Fluid organic shape sets off natural turquoise set against deep black all encased in highly polished silver. Made for a chain, leather, or omega to pass through the piece without interrupting the smooth flow of the shape.

This hollow form pendant is a modern take on a classic technique. May be worn with just about anything, from an elegant dress, turtleneck sweater, or jeans and a t-shirt.

Simple, elegant.

Approximately one quarter inch deep, about three quarter inch wide and an inch and a half long. Hand-crafted, one-of-a-kind. Signed on the back.

Inner Fire and Spark ~ Double Bead Necklace

Another one of my “Parent and Child” pieces, this necklace is comprised of two highly polished silver and copper shadowbox beads. The copper is reddened by heating to a very high temperature, and depending on the angle and the lighting, may look purplish maroon to a deep orange red.

The beads may be worn together, or separately, allowing for three different looks.

Signed on the back. Entirely hand-crafted and one-of-a-kind.

This was the first item to sell at the Prescott Indian Art Market last weekend.
