The Desert Collectio n was inspired by finding the quite place within ourselves, perhaps from the stillness of meditation, listening to soothing music, or finding a sense of peace and joy. The desert is really a place where your soul might feel totally comfortable and right at home.  Utilizing elements that are natural with a tribal chic flavor, perfect for summertime.

Gemstones featured in this collection are freshwater pearls, rutilated quartz, clear quartz, natural bone, tourmaline and moonstone.

 


 

The desert is quiet because it is still.  We can learn from that.  Stillness in the mind affords perfect peace.  Everything fits into a perfect pattern.  Balance is essential.  This too we can learn from the desert.  We can also learn to be more observant.  At first glance, the desert might appear to be lifeless.  And yet, if you observe closely, the desert teams with life.  We can sharpen our awareness and discover hidden treasures.  Plants that have learned to adapt to less moisture.  Reptiles, insects and mammals who have adapted and thrive.  Mammals that you may not be aware of include the mountain lion, prairie dog, kangaroo rat, gray fox, wild burro and the jack rabbit.  All these and more, thrive in the dessert. 

 

When we discover these treasures without in the dessert, we increase the treasures within.  We are further connected to Mother Nature and our planet.  Our lives blossom as we too adapt and thrive in all environments.  In a crowd of people.  Or alone.  On a busy street corner.  Or an oasis in a desert, sipping water, next to a mountain lion.  And all spaces in between.  Serenity is our natural birthright.


 

“I have always loved the desert.  One sits down on a desert sand dune, sees nothing, hears nothing.  Yet through the silence something throbs, and gleams...”     ―     Antoine de Saint-Exupéry,           The Little Prince
