ruffled feather jewelry

pauline Phillips



I am an artist. I have created art in multiple forms throughout my life. I have made drawings, paintings, prints. I am presently creating art in the form of jewelry. Jewelry is a deeply personal way of connecting with other people.  I am expressing my "self" when I create a piece. You express your "self" when you wear a piece of jewelry. It is an experience shared. It is tactile. It is individualistic. It is powerful. I love the connection my art/jewelry creates between me, as the artist and you, the wearer...and from you, the wearer to others! When a woman wears a piece of jewelry she is making a subtle but very powerful statement about herself. Jewelry truly is an expression of a woman...a woman's personal adornment speaks about her before she ever begins talking. I try to create jewelry that speaks quietly, with a simple power and sophistication with a nod towards traditional forms of art. I often use stamps in my designs. The stamps are handmade by several generations of Navajo artisans. These artists inspire me. They inspire my art. When I use these stamps while designing my jewelry, there is a connection to the traditional shapes and motifs of Native American jewelry while transitioning into new forms of narration. I hope when you wear a piece of my jewelry you feel powerful and beautiful and deeply connected to art and artists and yourself.

"jewelry is the most transformative thing you can wear."

All of my earrings are designed to highlight a woman's face. Some are dramatic. Some are small and dainty. All can be worn during the day at work, casually at lunch in a t-shirt and jeans with friends, or out on the town with your beloved in an elegant dress for a divine evening. All are handmade using sterling silver and other embellishments such as 14K gold filled or jeweler's brass. Be dramatic. Be simply beautiful. Be you.

cuffs,bracelets and bangles

I absolutely love making these bold sterling silver cuffs and bracelets! When worn individually they are stunning. When worn in a grouping...they definitely make a powerful statement. Be bold. Be empowered. 


Presently I am having a lot of fun designing sterling silver pendants in animal shapes. Horses, rabbits, butterflies, fish...and so many more to come! Have a favorite animal? Let me know. Maybe I can design a piece just for you. Pendants can be purchased with an accompanying handcrafted necklace or on a sterling silver chain. Be graceful. 


All of my distinctive necklaces are created using semi-precious stones, precious stones and metals along with vintage (late 1880s - 1920) Venetian or French seed beads. All of the connections and clasps are either sterling silver or 14K gold filled. Necklaces come in a variety of lengths. Some are single strand subtle elegant necklaces. Some are designed as multi-strand statement pieces. all necklaces can be worn as it is...or...add a pendant. Be glamorous.
