Fossilized Shark Tooth Necklaces

Fossilized shark teeth can come in every color of the rainbow. The colors depend upon which minerals replace the actual tooth during fossilization. A fossilized tooth is—quite literally—a stone. When I begin a new design, I must let the stone "speak" to me. No, I'm not crazy or superstitous. It's just my way of describing the creative process. I'll play with various beads that match the color of the tooth and then let my subconscious work on the design. The stone "speaks" to me while I concentrate on other tasks. When I return to the project, hopefully the stone will have spoken and I will create a beautiful new shark-tooth necklace.

MAD Designs by Marcia DeCoster

Marcia's love for beautiful jewelry and the desire to create her own designs brought Marcia to beads in the early 1990's. Marcia designs colorful and fun to wear jewelry and shares her designs through teaching. Remembering her own early attempts, Marcia recognizes that everyone learns differently and so takes great care to provide clear, concise and comprehensive instructions, graphics and text as well as a colored picture of the piece.

Her work has been published in Jane Davis's Complete Book of Beading and Carol Wilcox Wells The Art and Elegance of Bead Weaving. She also co-published two bead calendars, 2001 A Bead Odyssey and 2003 The Bead Goes On with Linda Parker and Dona Anderson.

On the local front, Marcia is President of the San Diego Bead Society and a juried member of the Spanish Village Art Center (SVAC) at Balboa Park in San Diego, CA.

* Treeva by Shawn and Treva Stone

Welcome to the Lives of Treeva, Shawn and Sequoia Stone. They have been creating their own reality for the past 7 years with their love of design, color, nature and most of all each other. The journey began simply with a passion for beauty and the need to express it in the physical form. Treeva’s love of stones, clay, leather and anything natural inspires her daily to create distinctive pieces for you to enjoy.

For Shawn, living in balance with nature and creating a sustainable future for his family is his passion. He had done so by building an eco friendly home and honoring Mother Earth with his organic and biodynamic farming principles.

Our son Sequoia is our inspiration to continue our conscious way of life and to follow our hearts on this journey of self expression…wherever it may lead us…stay tuned for what the future may bring!

* ARTISTIC LICENSE JEWELRY by Mary Payton Daniels

Artistic License is the freedom to veer from the norm. It is commonly said that the artist has the right to change her composition from the actual to the aesthetic which pleases her eye. Artists often say they "used their artistic license" when composing a work of art. It is the reason the art of Monet, Renoir, Dali, Pollak, Seurat, Manet, Gaugin, O'Keefe, Mondrian, and COUNTLESS others is enjoyed by the masses. It is the creedo some, myself included, try to live by. I enjoy being my own person, creating my own style, and staying just different enough not to be a cliche.

I have been an artist since I can remember. I have a vivid memory of a sketch of a tree that I was SO proud of. It was very unique, and I was very young. But I KNEW it was beautiful. It is the first time I can remember using my own artistic license. To this day, there are trees in my artwork. For me they will always be the "official seal" on my artistic license.
