Wild Burros!

I have been wanting to find the burros as long as I have known they live just two hours away.
before we even got to the creek they were there; standing in front of us.
curious but wary.

Burro creek wilderness area is a low desert water wonderland.  hiking, swimming, shade trees, rock walls and a tiny bit of canyoneering fun if you don't want to hike overland.

the canyon opens up to a great swimming and camping area.

Always inspired when I've been out exploring, I came back with a few new design ideas and have they been popular!
I sold one right off my person within the first day after making one.
so fun!
the sterling silver ball chain adds a soft touch to the rugged nature of the antler and turquoise.
also in copper.
I hope May finds you elbow deep in some garden soil, high on a mountain ridge, or kissing the velvet muzzle of your favorite wild pony.
Big hugs to all my wild mountain lovin' sisters!

↠ the many lives of cervid antlers ↞

most of you know:
I collect antlers.
from deer and elk.
I find them wandering.
friends give them to me.
sometimes
they are roadkill
or mountain lion kill.
every time I find one,
 I am moved to make something to honor the life it had
before I happened upon it's loveliness.
Once again,
I honor you elk
I honor you deer.
Thank You
