Deep in an oval cabochon of sky blue turquoise rested the spirit of a maiden, waiting to emerge. Wings brought her into the light with this elegantly beautiful solitaire.

Water is life in this desert place, and it is the rivers and streams that daily feed this land, and therefore us.

A shooting star traces the path of the sacred hoop in the night sky, then opens a passageway between worlds as it descends into the earth’s atmosphere.

The stone is bezel-set and trimmed with twisted silver. […]

Our stories, often seemingly small and very personal, offer a window into larger lessons for our way of living — as individuals, and as a people.

Indigenous cultures rest on a foundation of stories: stories of mud and straw brick; stories of how we came to be upon this land and what our task is here.

In the interstices between worlds, the spirits and elemental forces afford us an occasional glimpse but do not admit us entry, lest we be consumed by their power.
