Desert Lace: Cholla Cactus Skeleton Earrings


Sterling Silver Jewelry, Blue Sky Jasper, 1/2" x 2" Hook


Well, it finally happened. After 40+ years of living in Alaska and embracing winter most of those years, we finally decided or maybe winter decided for us, that it was time to head south with the geese, swans, and cranes. We ended up in a little community of like-minds in Green Valley, Arizona where we now find ourselves enjoying winter from afar. I tried not to design... I really, truly did. But as you can see it presented me with a new challenge. One I gleefully accepted. We continue to enjoy summers in our home in Ester.

The Sonoran desert of southwest Arizona is the wettest desert in the world receiving up to 15 inches of rain per year. It is home to the saguaro, cholla and prickly pear cactus, just to name a few. There is always a surprise when you take a walk and this "desert lace" is one of them. These sterling silver cactus skeleton earrings are modeled after the cholla (choy-ya), whose diamond lace pattern I fell in love with. These earrings and matching necklaces are the results. Enjoy!

Reminiscent of turquoise, the sky blue Jasper captures the beautiful earthy colors found in the desert.

-All hook earrings are supplied with safety sleeves.
-Matching necklaces are available
