Beyond the Ordinary
What: Handcrafted Mixed Media Jewelry
Where: Santa Fe, NM and Northern Ireland
Why: Carla works with an esoteric array of materials and techniques...Tagua Nut, Fossilized Ivory, pressed leaves, original drawings, scrimshaw, inlay, precious metals, resin and gems of all kinds. I'm attracted to her beach pebble palettes artfully mixed with a reverence for nature and origin, and I'm completely wowed by her imagination and originality of design. Truly extraordinary !
