My Wendy Gell Collection
You might want to click on the photos to enlarge them to see the detail on the jewelry.

Wendy lives in Ashland Oregon which is just two hours north of me here in Redding CA.  I don't go there often, but Glen has a cousin living there, so sometimes we visit both.

These items are not for sale, they are my personal collection, and presented here for your enjoyment.

This cuff is special.  It is a long one at 3 inches.  It is also all sterling.  The embelishments are sterling, and the cuff base is sterling.  Something that is rare in a Wendy Gell piece.

There is a palm tree in front of the bird, and an old brooch to the left.  Emerald color stones are scattered around this cuff.

The figures and the large flowers are ivory.  The ball on the flower is quartz.  I think she is telling his fortune.  ?

Made in 1985.  This one is not one to wear lightly.  I'm really careful when I wear it.

Love this one too.  It is what Wendy calls an Asian lady cuff.  The cuff contains coral, ivory, bone, plastic and opal type stones.

This cuff was originally made in 1988 and has been recently restored by Wendy.

This leaf has wonderful ivory marks.

This one cracks me up...it's a ring, and a HUGE ring.  The monkey matches the monkey in the leopard cuff pictured a few photos below this one.

The length of the ring is about 3 inches.  And it is adjustable.

The center stone is probably agate.  The white looks like a cloud....you can see down into it.

I got this one on Ebay for not much money.  One of the side stones was dead, and one tiny chain part was loose.  Both were easy fixes.

Lots of colors used on this cuff, and there are some clear rhinestones too.  :)

This is a wristy cuff that Wendy created for me using some crystals that Glen and I dug in Arizona.  It means a lot to me that this piece of jewelry has stones on it that I actually dug out of the earth with my own two grubby little hands.  :)
"How wonderful that's really recycling!"

The quartz crystals came from a mine south of Tucson AZ, about 6 miles from the Mexico border.

There are still traces of the earth in some parts of the crystal.

Wendy did a great job with the crystals, and she added her own special touch.  I told her that this wristy didn't need to be a bridal type with only clear stones.....I love the colors.

This is the other end of the cuff.

Here is the scepter crystal....the one poking up in the middle.  The crystals are aptly named, they look just like a scepter that kings and queens use.

Wendy signed the cuff, and even added my name.

This is Snow White....purchased on Ebay.  She needs a little TLC, and will get it soon.  The flower to the left here is a leather type flower.

I don't know what this yellow star is made of.....glass or ceramic I think.  Really a fun stone.  Also, you can see that Snow White's name is here on her dress.

I'm calling this one the chains wristy, and I think you can see why.  Wendy told me that it is really hard to get those chains all lined up and flat to the cuff.
