Almost nothing can compare to the unusual beauty of pearls grown in freshwater lakes, rivers and streams! They are unlike their sisters - Akoya, Tahitian, and South Sea - grown in saltwater oceans.
Freshwater pearls have distinctive natural colors. And, they are definitely not your "mother's" traditional round pearls since they boast baroque and freeform shapes like small sculptures. These "lovelies" also come in sizes from petite to majestic XL. You will find various types of freshwater pearls to choose from in my collections.

Dear Barbara — I just wanted to write to say how much I enjoyed the time with you (and Georgia) last week. I had so much fun learning from you and visiting with both of you. You are a very thoughtful and generous host and teacher! Friday was definitely a highlight of my Santa Fe Art Week experience. The hands on practice and collaboration were an excellent complement to all the admiring, looking, and observing of the week. And I love how the mala necklace turned out! Thank you!
Barbara, your jewelry is spectacular and has brought much joy to us - and to the people to whom we have given your pieces!
I cherish my many treasures (necklaces and earrings) from Barbara’s jewelry collection, all of which I enjoy wearing more than anything I own.
Each gem is individually created with her unique imagination.
Barbara has an intimate and professional knowledge of gemstones, which she crafts into stunning pieces, blending tradition with innovative design.
