Inspiration from the Palouse region of Eastern Washington

The Harvest


This rare Marra Mamba Tiger eye cabochon is only found in the Hamersley Ranges of the Pilbara region in Western Australia.  I paired it with an antique brass button from my collection.  

It reminded me of wheat fields in eastern Washington, specifically the Palouse region where the golden rolling hills are blown by the winds in waves. The fields go on for miles and miles and I get a similar feeling as I do when watching the ocean waves. Serenity.

"Federal policy tells us to fill 50 percent of our plates with fruits and vegetables.

At the same time, federal farm subsidies focus on financing

the production of corn, soybeans, wheat, rice, sorghum, dairy and livestock."  Chuck Norris
