This summer I have continued to be amazed and astounded by the abundance of wildflowers in the mountains and valleys of Jackson. The blaze of colorful blooms along the fence lines of the Snake River Ranch inspired this triptych necklace.

The fireweed, lupine, sticky geranium, harebells, sunflowers, delphinium, and groundsel are illuminated by clusters of brilliant gems. The beaches with geranium blooms on them were textured with fenced from the ranch. On the reverse is a quote by John Muir: “The mountains are calling and I must go…”

For me this captures the essence of the ranch in summer. All year I run, bike and walk past this property and feel blessed by the beauty of the long vistas. I hope this piece will find a special home and will inspire the wearer to meander daily through the natural vistas of Jackson Hole.

I would like to extend a huge thank you to both the Snake River Ranch and the Jackson Hole Land Trust for including me among the View 22 artists. It is an honor to be part of this event!
