Lampworked beads and art jewelry inspired by the deserts of the American Southwest.  I love creating the desert in glass and metal.  To see what is currently available please check my shop.

Flowers have inspired artists for centuries with their color and beauty. Here is a jewelry collection using my desert bloom lampworked bead.


The Zia rayed Sun symbol has four arms each of which has four parts. 'Four' is an auspicious or sacred number for the Zia: the four points of the compass, the four periods of each day, four seasons of the year, four stages of life, and the four sacred obligations for one's physical, mental, spiritual and social health.

Hollow beads have a bubble of air, making them light and easy to wear

A lariat , also referred to as a lasso, is a loop of rope designed as a restraint to be thrown around a target and tightened when pulled. It is a well-known tool of the American cowboy. The Urban Lariat is a go to necklace with a splash of color. Easy to wear without the hassle of a clasp. Several styles and lengths with lampworked beads, silver, pearls, crystals and semi-precious stones. A necklace that gets noticed.
