Our Southwest Flair Collection is a twisted mix of classic and modern styles. The majority of the stones used in this collection are turquoise, spiny oyster, coral, magnesite, jasper, agate, and onyx. The natural stones are combined with different metals, glass and crystals, lampwork and dichroic glass.
Here's the Best of 2011 from the Southwest Flair Collection.....
This design (to the right) features a nice silver textured pendant, turquoise barrels, Arizona ivoryite, and a touch of faceted crystals.
This design (to the left) was a dip into a one-solid color theme featuring a nice ax shaped sponge coral pendant, red (dyed) coral disks, lampwork and cloisonne beads with long chain extenders.
In this design (to the right) we combined several techniques, wire work and charming. At the center drop is a beautiful turquoise doughnut pendant and tons of charms in faceted crystals and cultured freshwater pearls. A couple of lampwork beads on the ends and everything is strung onto a braided leather cord.
Earrings (to the left) were not to be forgotten and this pair is all about the dangle and charms of faceted crystals!
This is a custom order (to the right) for a customer that loves turquoise and I added in copper colored cultured freshwater pearls and copper metals. The set included a bracelet that was sized to the customer's wrist.
Stay tuned for the rest of our 'Best of the Year' from each collection!
