Lively Up Yourself

Despite the curve balls thrown here lately it seems like nothin gonna get me down, oh no. Though my etsy has dwindled in fine goods, I am happily tapping away in my studio on custom work, largely with orders I took at Christmas and it's fun to see the looks on women's faces when they come to retrieve their goodies. In the middle of this and that, I finished a piece for etsy with a little turquoise trillion I snatched up in AZ last week. The stone is from Jerome Arizona historically known for it's copper mining past.


This is the time of year to be thinking about hearts and flowers so I made them my way, with a taste of the west. With a bit of dust and sagebrush in mind.


I made this darlin' valentine on a 24 in. chain so you can look down and admire it too.

Available now or on etsy tomorrow evening....
Thanks for looking, xo Ro

  1. Absolutely fabulous... Love the beautiful turquoise stone and the heart.

    I visit the town of Jerome several times a year. Lots of great eating places and some of the best galleries in northern Arizona. Full of charming building, lots of history and interesting folks.

  2. Beautiful and unique. I like that it's not typical Valentine's Day fare and is wearable year-round.

    1. Dust and sagebrush are my kindred friends Caroline, still I hope for some rain to bring up the scent and tamp down the powder.
