Who doesn’t want to check out the 10 Amazing Guest Ranches and more! I love Cowgirl Magazine and am honored to be part of it. Two of the pendants pictured are available.

HORSES - Unbridled .jpg

“Unbridled” is a large statement piece featuring an impressive Turquoise stone from the #8 Mine in Nevada shaped by Russ Kaniuth, Sunset Ridge Lapidary Arts, CA. The sterling silver pendant measures 3¾”h x 2¼”w and is highlighted with sterling silver accents – the horse was cast in a foundry in France.

HORSES - Riding To My Away Place.jpg

"Riding to My Run Away Place" showcases a sterling silver saddle and horse set on 100% copper accented with small piece of Nevada Turquoise and measures 2¾” h x 2”w and hangs from an 18” copper chain.

Thank Your Lucky Stars for Horseshoes!

It is well known that the horseshoe is considered very lucky!

LUCKY 2  357-476.jpg

Horseshoes have been and still are hung in many homes to protect and attract good fortune. High Desert Creations collectors have been gathering and wearing their good luck often – also often paired with stars – because the phrase “thank your lucky stars” expresses gratitude and appreciation for a favorable occurrence and a positive outcome – such as receiving good luck and/or peace.   

LUCKY - A Sense Of Peace  357-476 ration 4-3.jpg

CREATING CUSTOM COMMISSIONS FOR YOU!

I happily welcome collaborations in the creative process of designing a work of wearable art just for you! Together we can develop a design – whether it be a pendant or bracelet – whether it be sterling silver or 100% copper or a combination of both – and select focal point stone(s) and accents.  

I appreciate the words of Candy McHone Rowe, a long-time collector of my work who says: “Every new creation is better than the last. Fantastic talent shining bright.” Last month I shared a number of heart pendants – many were commissioned – and here are works of wearable art created with a special feeling.   

COMISSION - For The Love Of Caleb - high res.jpeg

My friend Valerie in Augusta, KS has such a kind heart!  She has been commissioning me to create pieces to celebrate her beloved horses and the above sterling silver and copper hinged bracelet is titled “For The Love Of Caleb.” Valerie chose the stone: a Carico Lake Turquoise that comes from a private turquoise mine outside of Battle Mountain, NV and was shaped by Jason Brousseau, NM.

COMMISSION - Lovelock.jpg

This copper cuff was commissioned by Dave from Lovelock, NV with the intention to help soothe his arthritis. I added a turquoise stone, to encourage healing. My facebook followers liked this idea too: Marlene Sabatina Good energy in that one! Judy Vaughn Very nice…gorgeous yet manly. Cyndi Dan Wolke Beautiful. How wonderful of you to help him. Your beautiful gift should lift his spirits.

COMMISSIONED PIECES  of TREASURES 3 x 4.jpg

I always appreciate the confidence invested in me. These pendants feature treasures sent by a collector in La Grand, OR who commissioned me to create gifts for her family with stones cut by her father.

CUFF LINKS.jpg

Worn by a well-loved father, I converted these cufflinks into earrings for Chris in Nevada who trusted me with these memorable treasures.

COMMISSIONED - Stirrup.jpg

“STIRRUP” is a collaborative piece designed by Billie Morken into which I suspended a Blue Mountain Jasper within a sterling silver and copper stirrup shape. An important work of wearable art – the pendant measures 5” high and 3½ wide – it received the following accolades: Fronnie Bealer This piece beautifully showcases the stirrup as, not only a very useful tool, but how big a part it played in the development of the west. Jessie Heinrichs Trying to come up with something I want you to do for me.. you make it tough only because all are Soooo beautiful. Judy Vaughn This piece whispers " saddle up".

COMMISSION - Path To The Unknown - high res.JPG

An intricate commission “The Path To The Unknown” sterling silver and copper pendant features as focal point Dead Camel Jasper from the Dead Camel Mountains outside of Carson City, NV – stone shaped by Paul Forsythe, Gilroy CA.

COMMISSION+-+32.jpg

In town for the 2019 Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale Auction, Nancy and Hutch from Superior, Wisconsin came by my studio with a photo of their ’32 Ford Roadster. I fulfilled this unusual commission request by creating a replica of the car’s grill – appropriately set with a piece of Fordite stone.

COMMISSION - white buffalo bracelet.jpg

This sterling silver bracelet with a remarkable White Buffalo centerpiece stone was a commissioned birthday present from husband to wife.

COMMISSION with Dead Camel.jpg

Designed with a Dead Camel Jasper cut by Odie House, Tucson, AZ, this sterling silver and copper piece was a Christmas commission going to Greeley, Kansas. The pendant is accented with barbed wire and a sterling silver horse cast in France.

To Ride on a Horse is to Fly without Wings

HORSES - For The Love Of Bueno Chexs.jpg

“For The Love Of Bueno Chex’s” is my newest horse pendant. Sometime around 1978-1979 we purchased Bueno Chex’s out of the Reno Snaffle Bite Futurity Sale. He was a kind and gentle stud horse and threw us some very awesome colts. He came back to mind so very strongly as I was designing this sterling silver, copper, brass pendant with a turquoise focal point stone cut by Jason Brousseau, NM. The pendant measures 3½”h x 2”w and hangs from an 18” heavy copper chain.

With five decades of ranching, roping and riding, the horse has been a big part of that. They inspire many of my pieces. To quote Shannon Ralls Lemon: “The essential joy of being with horses is that it brings us in contact with the rare elements of grace, beauty, spirit and fire.” 

I strive to represent these same fundamental characteristics in my hand-made jewelry – selecting stones that are authentic and beautiful; stones that are gracefully shaped by master stone cutters; stones that are said to have spiritual properties; stones unearthed and often tempered naturally by fire, water, and light – set in basic metals of sterling silver and 100% copper or a combination. For the most part, I have my sterling silver horses cast in a foundry in France. My designs bring joy to collectors and admirers alike.

Head Over Heels.jpg

Always interesting how these thoughts turn out. The loose stone is Shattuckite mined in Arizona; sterling silver horses are cast in France.

HORSE - Head Over Heels.jpg

"Head over Heels" was inspired by a little horse I rode many years ago on the ranch. This amazing little horse named Sam always made me look good. Shattuckite, a brilliantly colored natural stone, was mined in Bisbee, AZ and set in sterling silver with sterling silver accents. The pendant measures 3”h x 2”w and hangs from an 18” large link chain.

KT+-+riding+at+10+years+old+IMG_2327.jpg

My passion for horses was so great that, here I am twenty years ago, saddled up and ready to ride in minus 10 degrees weather.

HORSES - For The Love Of Horses.jpg

“For The Love Of Horses” was inspired by their loyalty, strength and kindness. A beautiful #8 Turquoise stone from Elko, NV. Is set in sterling silver with sterling silver accents. Of all I create, the ones with horses are always near and dear to my heart. A life-long ranching background does that. The pendant measures 2¼”h x 2½”w and hangs from an 18” wheat weave chain.

HORSES - Unbridled .jpg

“Unbridled” is a large statement piece featuring an impressive Turquoise stone from the #8 Mine in Nevada shaped by Russ Kaniuth, Sunset Ridge Lapidary Arts, CA. The sterling silver pendant measures 3¾”h x 2¼”w and is highlighted with sterling silver accents – the horse was cast in a foundry in France.

Pamela Ànderson Comer comments on “Unbridled”: “This is beautiful and I like the chain it is on as well, nice and strong and has some weight to it.”

I replied: Pamela, all my pieces are made to be passed down through the generations. I use 20-gauge sterling silver and good turquoise. Thank you for such kind words.”

HORSES - Head Winds .jpg

“Head Winds” features a Hubei Turquoise shaped by master stone cutter, Jason Brousseau, NM. Lots of great detail went into this piece – including the sterling silver horse. The pendant measures 2¼“h x 3” w and hangs from an 18” wheat weave chain. Worn wonderfully well with the addition of Navajo pearls.

“Head Winds" comments from facebook followers are so positive! Fronnie Bealer: I really like the whole piece. The horse has a great expression.”  Paula Miller Potts: Luv the stone luv luv the horse ... such beautiful work”

HORSES - Riding To My Away Place.jpg

"Riding to My Run Away Place" was inspired by a special place high on a rim overlooking the vast nothing, hearing the breeze in the juniper trees, with the sound of the saddle leather squeaking, my horse breathing and my dog panting. This pendant showcases a sterling silver saddle and horse set on 100% copper accented with small piece of Nevada Turquoise and measures 2¾” h x 2”w and hangs from an 18” copper chain.

KT - Gathering Cattle IMG_6699.jpg

Here I am in the wide open spaces – the vast nothing – riding toward my “Run Away Place”.

HORSES - Snowy River.jpg

“Snowy River" Necklace was inspired by the movie, “Man From Snowy River” which was the all-time favorite that our kids grew up watching. This piece – like the movie – shows the spirit of the way life should be lived. The focal points – a bold sterling silver horse and turquoise stone – are set on a 100% copper pendant measuring 4”h x 2”w. The 18” neckpiece of turquoise nuggets finishes this work of wearable art.

This is how Judy Vaughn feels about “Snowy River”: It's beautiful Kathi. I love horses. And this is perfect.”

HORSES 2.jpg

The “Remuda” Pendant is a one-of-a-kind showpiece that will never be redesigned again. These Shuttuckte stones (mined in Bisbee, AZ and known for their brilliant natural color) were cut by Russ Kaniuth, CA. Remembering the large remuda we had on our ranch in Southeastern Oregon, I placed a group of sterling silver horses that show tremendous movement above the stones. The pendant measures 1½”h x 3”w and hangs from a 20” heavy link chain.

Patricia Ogden lovingly comments: So much Beauty and also magnificent I admire you for taking your time with your soul and heart for making such beautiful jewelry it puts such a great big smile on my face and thank you so much for sharing with me always God bless you always”.

“There is something about the outside of a horse, that’s good for the inside of a man.” Winston Churchill 

JASPER for JANUARY

I want to share the beauty and a bit of info of stones that I’ve searched out selected many times over: JASPER! There are many different types of Jasper in the world and it has been determined that environmental influences contribute to the colors and striations of these expressive stones.

While the pendants shown here are already owned, this is a look/see at a variety. You can be sure that I will continue to create pendants and bracelets with Jasper as the focal point.

Yesterday, Nancy, my good friend and a devoted collector, stopped in wearing one of my heart pendants. The heart symbol represents the center of emotion – of love and affection – so it’s no wonder that so many are attracted to the heart shaped stones that I often use as the focal point of my original works of wearable art.

TOUR ON for just TWO (2) DAYS: Sat. 24 & Sun. 25

In 1964 I married Tom Turner and settled in Ellensburg, WA. It was here that my interest and love for Native American Indian culture originated. Largely self-taught – over a 14-year period, I learned traditional beading techniques from the elder women of the Yakima Tribe. Yesterday, one of my favorites, “Vaquero Espanola” was acquired by a very pleased art patron.

Just a few weeks ago, I created “Waves Of The Heart” featuring an exceptional Hubei Turquoise shaped by master stone cutter Jason Brousseau, NM. Yesterday, it stole the heart of a wearable art appreciator who happily slipped it onto her own leather cord.
