My Simply Southwest Pendant

Sandstone, turquoise, and wire pendant by Linda  - featured on Jewelry Making Journal

Wire Art

I made this from a piece of Sandstone and a chunk of Turquoise… I live in Arizona and my Home is New Mexico… so a piece close to my Heart.

It is wrapped with Sterling Silver Wire.

I have been designing in Wire since 2000 when I found a Wire Artist Magazine in a store in Quartzite, Arizona on my way from California to New Mexico.

I enjoy wire because the ideas are endless…for jewelry as well as decoratives!

  1. Linda, a very cool idea to create a pendant with such personal meaning for you. Silver wire is a perfect way to combine all these Southwestern elements. I agree with your sentiment on wire – it’s wonderful because it’s limitless!

    Linda, that is pretty! I’m especially drawn to Southwestern because I’m from Flagstaff and have many family members in New Mexico. I now live in Oklahoma and really miss Arizona. At night to relax I like working with wire trying to see what I can come up with, though it usually doesn’t turn out the way I like, but it is fun trying. Very creative!

    Lived in Phoenix many years now in Prescott. Love Southwest colors also and often like to pair them with copper. Very creative use of the stones combined with wire wrapping.
