The natural beauty and colors of the Southwest have influenced my knitting.

Lately I have been searching for silver jewelry from the Southwest. I have some family pieces that were passed down to me from my Mother. Silver jewelry accented with turquoise and other gem stones were widely made by Native American's and sold at Trading Posts. In the 1930's when my Grandmother traveled there to visit David she brought home quit a lot of lovely pieces.
I will leave the details to the experts as there are many. I would like to share some pieces I have found around Etsy.
I love this roadrunner! They just make me smile and this would look great on my cowl.
