I was approached by a store in Truth or Consequences, New Mexico, that wanted to carry some of my jewelry items. Knowing the clientele of the store, I decided to develop a new line of jewelry that will cater to the customers and be sold exclusively at this store. The funny thing is, I envisioned my finished display in my mind, and needed to achieve the picture somehow (cart before the horse?).

I began designing and creating the jewelry. This collection is mostly cowboy/cowgirl themed, in Southwest/Americana colors, using turquoise Magnesite, coral and pewter. I'm also introducing a line of magnetic pendants that are hooked on a necklace with a magnetic bail. These pendants can be easily removed and worn on any necklace!
Today I started placing items on the display shelves. It's exactly as I pictured! I'm still finishing some pieces to include in the initial delivery, but the idea has come together. I now feel like I have accomplished something.
