JEWELRY DESIGNS by SALLY JACOBSEN
I have been making jewelry for over 20 years since moving to Utah. I first started designing bracelets as a stress relief activity from my work responsibilities. Designing and handcrafting jewelry has become my constant companion while still pursing my career in the law and public service. Having lived in several western states I learned to appreciate the beauty in stones such as turquoise, agates and jaspers, so I was drawn to use natural stones in various cuts and sizes. Then I added other natural materials such as pearls and amber that complemented the stones. My “signature” was always to include one special focal bead. Crystal and glass beads were later added to the mix. Having received compliments and encouragement for my work I began designing more challenging projects, necklaces and ensembles.
In my on-going quest to find the “perfect” focal bead or component, creating my own was a logical next step. A cabochon of beautiful glass can stand on its own, adapt nicely to other materials or inspire a wire wrap. I have always loved the colors and tactile elements of the materials I use and work to create jewelry that is both pleasing to the eye and a joy to wear.
I accept requests for custom designs.
