This necklace was inspired by my time living in Arizona in the 90's. I fell in love with the landscape of the high desert. The ocean jasper cabochon makes me think of the orange poppy flowers that bloom there every spring. For a time I was riding my bicycle as my primary transportation, and living in a camper that we parked near a vast rock formation called the Granite Dells (photo below). Everyday I would ride 5 miles to school and go by a field that bloomed full of orange poppies once a year. I don't have a photo of that field, but I do have this photo of my son at the Dells from our trip in 2016. It's outside of Prescott, AZ. Go there if you ever have the chance!
