Beautiful Turquoise Jewelry - From a collector.

If you love turquoise, then you might want to stop in our shop.

We have a dozen pieces from a local lady who has collected turquoise for many decades.
She has decided that she wants to sell some pieces from her extensive collection.

Several of these pieces are signed - The big, big bracelet is Gary Reeves. 
The marquise shaped ring is signed by Harrison Jim.
(We had a Pete Sierra piece, but it sold 2 hours after we put it out!)

The turquoise in the bolo is wonderful - a full range of color and some pyrite.

These two bracelets were made during hard times when the Indians used German silver instead of sterling silver to save money - as you can see, the turquoise is wonderful.

The necklace below was actually put together by the collector, Julie.
It has turquoise nuggets, red coral, onyx and "navajo pearls".

Mandala Art From Canadian Artist Adam Millward at Chimera Design

When we opened in 2002, we were a combination Art Gallery & Jewelry Store.
At one point we had work from 42 local artists.

Those days are gone - there are a couple galleries on our street now.

However, we still love art. A few weeks ago, Cliff found a Canadian
artist Adam Millward and fell in love with his Mandala art.

These are 10"x 10" Prints
Signed and numbered.
$36 in a simple frame.
$30 with no frame. 

Come on in and take a look - Adam's work is captivating.

New Gemstone & Freshwater Pearl Jewelry At Chimera Design

We have a great relationship with a group of talented artists in Tucson, Arizona. 
We just unpacked almost 100 new pieces of their jewelry - stop in and see them in person.

 The necklace above is a great combination of Jasper.

Below are some very nice, lustrous freshwater pearls.

Looks like Turquoise - but it is really Howlite and freshwater pearls. 

Chalcedony and freshwater pearls.
