The Escapee, Gambrel's Quail Earrings

Sterling Silver jewelry, Green Patina, 3/4" X 1/2", French Hooks


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.

Gambrel's Quail with their top-knots that bob when they quick step across our patio always seem to be in a hurry and on the move, hence the suitcase and cowboy hat! The Sonoran desert is home to this distinctive bird and it is often found in our backyard most mornings and evenings, trailing a musical variety of clucking and crowing notes. I love their distinctive patterning of white, brown and black. They are always a treat to see.
