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.

    The first thing that popped into my mind when I saw this was WOW!!! it is gotgeous – meant to type gorgeous, but maybe gotgeous means so goreous I gotta have it. Outstanding!

    And what are you offering as earrings for the ‘set’ buyer? curious minds are standing by…

    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.

    Good luck to you..I can’t believe it didn’t sell I am shocked!!! It really is very very beautiful!
