Dreaming of the Desert a collection on ArtFire

Here is a warm collection of southwestern treasures assembled by Shadow Dog Designs who has "...a life long love of Nature and rocks and stones, working with semi-precious stones allows me to satisfy a strong desire to create one-of-a-kind jewelry."

The featured item is desert sunset flexible cotton bangle bracelet made with hand dyed cotton cord and a few beads, one of the design )strata( series of bracelets.

My favorite items from this collection are the Santa Fe Birdhouse by Brian Wort from California and and a dramatic print The Wave Paria Canyon by Claudia.

The landscape patterns in her print are the inspiration for the design )strata( series of fabric bracelets - can you see the similarities? More examples behind the link.
