Come on out and see how I create some of my work, and please, say “Hello!!”
It is such a gorgeous time of year in Arizona ~ the perfect time to be out, enjoying the crisp fall air, amazing landscapes, and, of course, art!
The event at Zen Mountain Gallery will be icing on the cake.

Brushed fine silver holds a single pearl in this hollow form pendant. Silver and pearl are a lovely combination as they softly reflect light. The pendant is slightly bowled as well, rounded edges in line with the organic shape of the bowl.
May be worn with just about anything, from casual jeans and a t-shirt, to a silk blouse, wool sweater, or dress.
Hand-crafted, this piece, like the pearl, is not “perfectly” round—it maintains a natural quality. One-of-a-kind. Signed on the back.
This piece is designed for the chain to pass through the pendant so as not to disrupt the shape of the piece.
Lapis stands out surrounded by copper in this shadowbox pendant. The copper has been intensely heated, bringing out deep reds, oranges, and purples with flecks of gold and yellows. Different light brings out the different colors in the copper, sometimes it looks maroon, sometimes orange, sometimes red. It changes, just like fire.
This pendant is a hollow form and entirely hand-crafted. It is made of polished fine silver, copper, and lapis. 1/4 inch deep and 5/8 inch diameter. Signed on the back.
