An artisan jewelry journey in color, texture and fun. Beaded jewelry with handcrafted sterling silver is my focus and joy.

Mother's Day is almost upon us. How about something fresh and a bit unusual? This delicate Mama Peapod should do the trick. The "pod" can have up to six "peas" of any mix of boy/girl - blue/pink in any order. Need more peas? Just add more pods! Happy Mom's Day!

There is something so enduring about the classics....well, duh, that's why they're "classics"!! This time around I'm talking about the combo of turquoise, red coral, and sterling silver - a Southwestern classic for jewelry. I fell in love with these absolutely bold and beautiful "vertebrae" beads of red bamboo coral. Combined with genuine turquoise and sterling silver, they make for a necklace of timeless beauty, but definitely not for the faint of heart. Luscious!
