...follow your dream...
WE are Cherie & Scott, of Elksong Jewelry. We’re so pleased you’re here, let us tell you a bit about ourselves.
CHERIE has had a lifelong jewelry passion, coveting ornament from an early age & started creating her own at about age 10. She has collected skills like odds & ends in a gypsy’s back pack, combining bead weaving with wire wrapping & handmade lampwork glass beads in delicious, earthy combinations.
SCOTT learned basic silver smithing from the lovely Mimi Haggerty in Tucson Arizona back in 1992 & advanced that training at the Randolph Center in Tucson. He also started experimenting with stone cutting & lapidary work around the same time. He now creates necklace focals, stone slab earring “tabbies”, hand made beads and carvings for Cherie to incorporate into her designs.
ALL of our creations come out of our hand built, solar powered studio in the high desert of extreme southeastern Arizona, about 13 miles from the border of Mexico. We’ve been living up in the hills, off grid, since 1999, building our little artsy funky house ourselves, gardening, cooking sumptuous plant-based meals, hiking, making jewelry & doing concrete work & carpentry, all with equal enthusiasm in our beautiful, natural desert home!
WELCOME & enjoy!
