Natural appeal

Washington studio jeweler Rebecca Bashara has established a loyal following of groupies since showing her work at Gallery Fifty. Her organic designs and natural materials definitely appeal to the northern Michigan woman.

"I combine miniature carvings with forged silver to create these contemporary artifacts," says Rebecca. Her jewelry drips with simplicity and the worn, rounded river stones are held together with an almost-asian design asthetic.

The river stones are set "as found" — no tumbling. And the oil from one's skin is what keeps them looking polished.
