Breezy Desert Designs

Excerpt from Polly Dacus on her jewelry design: “Breezy Desert Designs is the product of my love of climbing and desire for balance in life. While rock climbing challenges me, takes me to my most favorite places, and connects me with others, I also need down-time: a home, a nest, a well-stocked kitchen. I need skiing. I need my job. I need my husband. I need some cute clothes! Making cam lobe earrings is a creative outlet that connects my rock climbing with the rest of my life. I may be at work, but I’ve got cam lobes dangling from my ears, reminding me of my next adventure. I enjoy the process of making these earrings, thinking about who will be wearing them, how others will see them, and how it’s someone else’s expression of themselves. These earrings take something hard and rugged, add some color and charm, and make something special and beautiful. They seem to represent all my own sides, and, I think, many other women’s sides as well.” Below is a picture of Polly modeling her earrings.
