Two Amazing Jewelry Artisans

This week the focus is on designers, and I’m featuring Janel Garza and Sam Mayo of Ardapony.

JANEL GARZA

Janel has just finished her show at Treeo, Sonoran Shapes, where she got rave reviews from Phoenix New Times. She loves geometric shapes and patterns, and her colors are southwestern. Right now she has some earrings to sell that are very reasonably priced (under and way under $35).

Before I show you her jewelry though, I want you to see two lovely pieces she exhibited at Treeo, so you get an idea of how diverse she is.

And here’s an Ostrich egg she showed last year at David Wright House in Arcadia, and is now a coffee table book.

In short, Janel Garza works in a variety of media and has  much more to offer than pretty but elegant jewelry. Here are some of the pieces she’s selling now, just in time for the holidays.
