Anthropology Inspiration

     If I were a younger woman, my dream job would be to work for Anthropology making store displays. The  creativity there just amazes me!! The whole store concept is so fabulous, but of course I am not telling you anything you don't already know.
Some of their jewelry is also fabulous, but a lot of it looks really cheap to my eye. But of course my eye is pretty picky these days. Perhaps the plastic look is hot right now, but my eye just doesn't appreciate it.
     I have done several new pieces that have been inspired by Anthropology's generous and ingenius
combinations of colors, so I am posting them here for you to decide! They are very color specific, just like I find Antro to be.
All three of these are one of kind. The two that are similar are stick (biwa?) pearls that I have been saving for years. The color combos are just delicious.
     The longer of the four, pictured to the left,  features an apricot pearl, called a "reborn" pearl, that I married with african turqoise, and two faceted quartz crystals.

Saratoga Rotary Art Show this Weekend

Well this isn't a good sign. It is the beginning of the show year, and already I am behind on this blog. Oh well. I really don't think I have that many interesting things to say!
But I find it interesting that I waited until the very last minute to make a piece of glass that someone was interested in at Saratoga last year. I made got to make 3 components, and two of them were really excellent. Then I ran out of propane. So is this a good sign, or a bad sign? I will at least get to make two necklaces for Saratoga that I havn't had yet this year, so I guess it is what it is.

About Me

I love the stones and pearls, and the magic that happens when I combine them, and then again combined with the glass I make. You can find me at an Art show somewhere in Northern California most weekends during the spring and summer. Email me at if you like.
