Jewelry Making Inspiration
I became inspired to use the beauty of the land to create an alternative work of art. The vivid Wyoming nighttime sky combined with the picturesque scenery of the West manifested into an artistic vision that I call my Wild West Jewelry© Collection.
The great majestic Rockies are my inspiration for all my pieces. I include a description with each piece of my jewelry which tells a brief story of what drove me to create that particular necklace.
The Pow Wow Drums beaded necklace includes this description: "The Plains Indians drum tones are an integral part of their dances, enabling them to harness the power of the earth mother. Moss agate with gold accents."
Jewelry Making Technique
I used moss agate stones that have natural golden accents that I found while hiking in the mountains. I used a wirewrapping technique to wrap the moss agate bead.
Jewelry Making Challenge
The challenge I found myself with was to find a person locally that would assist me in tumbling my rough moss agate bead.
