Some gals have billions of pairs of shoes, mostly designer. Some gals have a large collection of designer handbags. Me? Apparently my thing is necklaces. I can't really pinpoint where it started; but I think someone complimented my necklace choice several times; and said something to me, appreciating my taste in jewelry.

Thus started my collection of jewelry. There's no question I'm picky and I'm definite a fan of the "less is more" style of jewelry. Most of the jewelry in my collection comes from NY&CO, surprisingly enough. That is, until now.

I've blogged before about the farmer's market here in SLC which just had its last weekend this Saturday past. I found this fabulous designer there named Dee Horn. Her designs are simple, elegant, and, unlike many of her fellow jeweler's at the market, affordable. I probably have spent more than I should have at her booth; but I have a lot to show for it. Not all of it was for me: more than a few were meant as gifts and some others might end up that way still.

What's even better, is that she is willing to work/sell from afar. Honestly, I don't know when I'd make it back to Salt Lake, much less during Farmer's Market time. I don't know anyone here except work folk. So I was highly pleased that I'd found a great designer, an affordable designer and someone willing to work long-distance.

Here's a sampling of some of her work. Some are purchases (mostly backed by purple) and some are taken from her booth. Her booth was uber-busy on the final weekend and there were many returning customers like me... that's a testament to her!

Swarovski Pearls

Real Leaf Necklaces

Purple Beads

Rainbow of Bags

Earring/Necklace Set

More Bracelets


I wish I had more pictures of her necklaces from the booth, but the pictures are really busy because of how she displays most of them.

If you like her work and are interested, let me know and I'll give you her info. She's a real sweetheart! Did I mention that this talented lady does this as a side business? She's a nurse by day!
