Desert Heart Jewelry
by Deborah Sparshott
Handcrafted in Texas
Desert Heart is the creation of artist Deborah Sparshott. After working in a number of art and craft mediums, she settled in to jewelry in the mid 1980's. After producing one of a kind pieces for galleries across the country, Deborah began reproducing her work for the trade. Desert Heart is a small company of artisans producing Deborah's designs.
Desert Heart jewelry is proudly hand crafted in America. Company headquarters is in the west Texas mountain community of Alpine.
Besides Deborah's keen sense of color and design, the carefully considered range of materials contribute to the unique effect. Deborah selects all the materials- subtle shades and specially finished Austrian crystal, vintage beads not seen in decades, a palette of semi-precious stones and beads, metal stampings, charms and chains from America's golden age of costume jewelry, the natural beauty of freshwater pearls. Most metals feature an antique finish to heighten the look of timeworn elegance. Deborah shops the major markets and selects only a small amount of what is available- the most unique colors and cuts, the most evocative charms, the most distintive chains.
In 2009, we will introduce new items three times during the year. Due to the uniqueness of our materials (see above), many of collections have a limited availability. We urge our buyers to order promptly to insure availability of the jewelry they choose. Many collections will sell out within a few months.View All Items By Desert Heart Jewelry Custom Design Center
