“Life in the Rockies”

Description from Granny Nancy: I was thinking about the year we lived in Colorado: 1976. It was gorgeous out there. The sky was a brilliant blue most of the time. And even when it rained or snowed, once it stopped, the roads would dry up quickly unless there was a LOT of snow. But it was great out there but Harvey's job just didn't work out.

We had a cabin house up in the mountains that was actually a design for a beach house. There's some real irony there. Anyway, there was lots of cowboy history and that's why I chose the copper picks and the aqua.

And variations on these colors would make great pieces.

    Even as a little tiny box on my phone this pick stood out. The picasso czech glass, the gaea pieces, the jangles, and earthenwood all look fantastic with the LR pieces.

    What a beautiful depiction of your year in the mountains, Nancy ! Have always loved traveling in Colorado and can only imagine how much fun it must have been to live there way back then – - – and all the elements of your pick would indeed make some fabulous jewelry.

    While living in south eastern Wyoming we went camping almost every weekend in Rocky Mountain National Park was open and of course we went to Frontier Days. The point is I can see where this came from and am looking forward to seeing the object.
