|Dan Dodson Jewelry|
Wearable Art from Cowgirl Kim
Dan Dodson is another one of my favorite jewelry designers. I first discovered him on eBay when I ran across some of his beautiful jewelry. He is a Santa Fe based artisan, and he features heart and cross motifs in many of his pieces. I collect heart and cross jewelry, so that is probably why I became an instant fan of his work!
I was excited when Kim Moncure told me that she had purchased some Dan Dodson jewelry for her online store called Cowgirl Kim. Most of the jewelry she purchased features hearts and crosses. So, if you like those design motifs as much as I do, you are going to be in jewelry heaven!
The Carved Turquoise Heart Necklace (left, $699) is gorgeous! The pendant features a large carved turquoise heart with a rope edging, concho buttons, and a large tooled bail. It hangs from a multi-strand necklace of turquoise beads and antique look bench beads. You can wear each piece together or separately. The Onyx Cross Necklace is also one of my favorite pieces (center, $499). The pendant is a "cross path" type cross in polished onyx, accented with small sterling silver concho buttons. The necklace is comprised of five strands of onyx and sterling silver bench beads. It is simple, classic and sexy! The Spiny Oyster and Turquoise Heart Necklace (right, $399) features a large spiny oyster heart surrounded by bezel set blue green turquoise stones. The necklace has larger sterling silver bench beads interspersed with dark blue green turquoise rondels. This colorful necklace is perfect for the Spring and Summer months. It will look stunning with a white top!
