This award-winning artist’s background is as unusual as her jewelry: A Plains Indian who lived in New Mexico, makes jewelry, spent her childhood in New Zealand, and now lives in North Carolina! With an intercultural, international outlook, she embraces exotic stones, and is noted for her feminine designs.This bracelet is more contemporary, in a minimal way, than most of her work, but is still ladylike and elegant, with that surprising stone and elegant proportions. Polymer clay is a “new” material, and Shawn has delighted in a vivid, expressionist swirl of color. Classic and cool, in contrast, the silver is subtle; etched across the center, with a smooth, satin finish at the ends. This would stack beautifully – or shine on its own. Simple, and impeccably made, it is a serenely beautiful piece with an unexpected pop!!
