Picture Idaho


About this design:

One of my favorite "rockhounding" places (when I want to stay clean, at least) is my LRS (local rock shop). I spotted these fun cut-outs of Owyhee Picture Jasper. The ideas for their use flowed and I couldn't resist getting a few. The name hints at the fact that the Owyhee Mtns span the Oregon/Idaho stateline.

Components:

Owyhee Picture Jasper "frame" and cubes; copper chain, wire (12, 22 and 26 ga), beads and clasp; wood beads.

    Here’s what I did with another of the Owyhe PJ frames. It’s a pendant that isn’t heavily decorated–a few guys admired the necklace’s pendant and wondered if I have a more masculine version. So….

    Lorrie, Ravin, Julia, SunnyChick–I appreciate your comments. I have an Art Festival show in Idaho this weekend and I’m hoping there will be a customer who thinks as highly of this as y’all and wants to give it a home.

    Well, the necklace didn’t sell at my show this weekend–almost did but the woman wanted it longer. As we talked and I explained lengthening would be know problem, it appeared that she really wanted just the pendant. I pointed out the solo pendant (pictured in the fifth comment in this string)–she grabbed it and described to me how she had a strip of very soft deer skin that her husband tanned. The pendant will have a luxurious “chain.”

    This necklace received LOTS of raves but the crowd for the most part was buying conservatively. I might get a call for it as several customers took my biz card after talking about the necklace with friends.
