We all know diamonds are a girl’s best friend, but who says tiger’s-eye and moonstone can’t join your jewelry squad? These Phoenix artists are designing modern, Southwestern-inspired pieces you won’t find at your local mall.
Inspired by “love, magic and adventure,” Ashley Pasquan creates handmade jewelry out of raw crystals and minerals. The pieces are meant to emphasize the natural beauty of the stones, with little embellishment. Prices range from $15-$35.
Etania Gems & Jewelry
A certified diamontologist, Lisa Baker produces upscale jewelry that “ignites the senses and inspires the soul.” She relies on natural stones for inspiration for her Etania line, named after a Native American term for richness. Prices range from $28-$1,650.
6140 E. Cave Creek Rd., Cave Creek,
Phoenix native Allison Dendulk’s love of the Southwest environment inspired her collection of “everyday jewelry for the desert goddess.” Handpicked gemstones, like the blue lace agate pictured here, are set in one-of-a-kind sterling silver settings. Prices range from $36-$82.
Metalsmiths Tyler Greene and Kelli Van’s MoonAge boutique offers pieces ranging from a simple, silver-stamped cactus ring to a ring set with a Mexican fire opal. If you want a piece that’s completely unique, you can attend a jewelry workshop and create your own piece with the help of professionals. Prices range from $24-$799.
