IMAGES ARIZONA is a widely-read – widely distributed professional publication with a focus on supporting the arts. I am pleased to be a featured artist in the October 2017 issue. See page 64 of the Carefree, Desert Mountain, North Scottsdale edition.
A heartfelt thank you to all who visited High Desert Creations during the 2017 HITH Tour! I so enjoyed meeting new friends, welcoming back long-time friends and sharing my jewelry making process with all of you.
I love seeing eyes light up and hands reach out to touch and put on my original pieces of wearable art. Many have a story to tell and now you add to the experience your story about finding, admiring and acquiring. Meaningful and memorable to both you and I.
Please know that I am just a text or phone call away (775-304-6756) and will be happy to set a time to meet with you in my favorite place – High Desert Creations Studio in North Scottsdale.

I'm so thrilled to participate again in Sonoran Arts League's Hidden In the Hills Studio Tour (11/22-24, & 11/29 - 12/1)! It is my 2nd year being part of this awesome group of artists coming together to open their studios and meet the community.
I have spent weeks getting ready - and tonight I share this picture of "the night before". Must admit, I feel a mix of emotions - "Will they come?? Will they like my work? Will they see the love I have put into each piece??"
I share this because Studio Tours are about getting to know each artist, and the heart and soul they put into their work. Each of us (no matter how experienced or seasoned) looks forward with a bit of anxiety to putting their heart on the line throughout the show. We welcome you into our work and our world. We're honored by your visit.
Below is my quiet studio tonight..."the night before". Can't wait to see it come to life tomorrow. For me it's about the work, the inspiration, and the connection that happens when I'm creating. I'm happy thinking whoever is drawn to my work is meant to have it.
Hope to see you throughout this weekend and next...
So happy to again participate in the Hidden in the Hills Studio tour in Arizona. It is a free, self-guided tour of 46 studios and 167 working artists in the greater Scottsdale area over two weekends (Nov 22 - 24, and Nov 29 - Dec 1). Maps and additional information are available here: http://www.sonoranartsleague.org/hidden.php - please come see us!
I'm thrilled that Paul Jones www.pauljonesart.com will again be presenting at Two Sisters Studio, and I look forward to re-connecting with many friends and lovers of handcrafted bead artistry and metal-smithing.
I will be demonstrating the craft of Peyote Bead Work, and will be holding a drawing for a small piece of my work.
I look forward to seeing you then, and thank you for your support of local artists!
We are thrilled to have completed a successful show with the Hidden in the Hills Studio Tour in Arizona this year. We were so pleased to meet many long time followers of High Desert Creations, and to meet many new friends. What a treat to co-present work with my sister Christine Warjone www.cwarjone.com and to share with so many the great synergy we have as both sisters and artists throughout the show. We look forward to seeing many of you next year!
