Welcome to my Utah/Arizona red rocks inspired jewelry blog! Due to the Covid pandemic, we decided to drive explore our local neighboring states and enjoy the sheer natural beauty of the Southwest rocks and natural arch and sand dune formations. Utah is truly amazing place of natural wonder. Wherever I wander I am overwhelmed by the spirit of place and ethereal landscape. Utah is like art in captured in stone. The landscape of southern Utah is a wonderland of erosional artistry. A unique combination of geological processes has resulted in a landscape with an infinite variety of color and form. We went to Utah in the Fall of 2020 and Spring of 2021. We did a lot of hiking and explored the breathtaking sunset canyon view at Cedar Break near Escalante. We hiked to the Tropic Ditch Falls in Bryce Canyon National Park and saw beautiful orange hoodos and river rocks. We also were brave enough to offroad in deep sand for miles to then hike to the remote Cosmic Ashtray, Escalante a beautiful volcanic sand hole on top of many high cliffs with an unmarked path. We also hiked 4 miles with 5 river crossings to reach the Escalante Natural Bridge. We got to go witness the beautiful cake like layered red rocks at Capitol Reef National Park. We hiked on beautiful rocks that look at Joshua tree rocks on water at Watson Lake in Prescott Arizona. We were sandblasted by white sand at the Great Chamber in Utah that looks like a window to heaven with the gorgeous blue skies and clouds. We hiked in in an unknown path to Sunset Arch in Escalante. The beautiful red rock colors and scenery of Utah and Arizona has inspired me to create my jewelry designs here using carnelian and citrine stones with gold colors that capture the essence of the red rocks in crystal form. We seized any opportunity to explore and photograph the almost limitless natural wonders in the red rock country of Utah. Hopefully these pictures will encourage you to come out for a visit and start your own journey!
