Regarded as the most beautiful turquoise by natives of Arizona, pea sized Sleeping Beauty beads are knotted with linen and paired with a simple hand made sterling hook and chain. Color ranges between bright blue and green.

Sleeping Beauty Necklace

  • Green and blue Sleeping Beauty turquoise from Globe, Arizona

    21" long + 1" adjustable chain


As a maker, I work primarily in clay and metal.  Both materials come from the earth and are transformed by fire.  Some of the same stones I set in jewelry I use as fine ground powder in glazes. For me, there is something incredible and romantic about the idea of turning rocks and dirt into something beautiful that lasts forever. I find the skills I need for each medium complement each other.
