UPCOMING SHOW and SALE at the SEDONA ARTS CENTER, Special Exhibitions Gallery, Sept. 7-9, 2018 "Faces and Places": Karen Taylor paintings and Victoria Z Rivers jewelry, opening reception Friday, Sept. 7, 5-8 pm Uptown Sedona, AZ
Welcome to my site featuring one-of-a-kind, artist made jewelry with antique Moroccan Berber (Amazigh) amulets, talismans, antique beads, coins and monetary units from Southeast Asia and genuine diamond cabochons. I search the markets of Morocco, Thailand and Burma to find pieces that speak to me, and reverberate with soulful beauty. Some pieces are quite worn but their beauty shines forth in a timeless, quiet dignity. Each piece whispers its stories, and leads me to create jewelry combining meaning, magic and beauty for you.
Amulets are believed to protect from the Evil Eye, an ancient concept. Talismans are believed to bring positive energy. Besides bringing beauty to the wearer, amulets and talismans can provide a sense of security and reassurance. Amulets and Talismans are believed to posses and bring about BARAKA. To quote the author Tahir Shah, Baraka is ..."surely pre-Islamic: the idea that a person, creature, or thing is blessed. The blessing runs so deeply that it touches every cell, every atom, so that any association with that thing extends the blessing on to you".
NEXT SEDONA STUDIO SALE Friday, November 30 from 3-7pm and December 1 from 10-4. We will have many new pieces featuring antique Berber Moroccan amulet jewelry and fabulous finds from Thailand including a selection of miniature Thai food carts and gift items.
