I am often asked to donate jewelry that I have created for various causes and one charity that is close to my heart is the local humane society. Every June the Humane Society of Central Oregon hosts a gala fundraiser called Tuxes and Tails. This past June I created a sterling silver pendant for the event that was inspired by one of my favorite mountain lakes. The pendant hangs vertically and looks like a leaf, but when you look at the piece horizontally you will see the Three Sisters mountain range and their reflection in the nearby Hosmer Lake. There are 3 bead set yellow diamonds as stars in the sky and a 5mm yellow sapphire bezel set below as a rising full moon. Welcome to Central Oregon and the mountains that continually inspire my jewelry.
