I often talk about the distinct culture of Texas and all of the influences of historical value in my jewelry work. My Cowgirl Prom collection is the quintessential example of how an idea becomes a reality. I found this picture of Annie Oakley while exploring vintage images with a western flair. I love Miss Oakley's western shirt so artfully decorated with sharp shooting awards and ribbons. "I Can Do Anything Better than You", from the musical, Annie Get Your Gun pops into my head. I assemble my stash of vintage and antique jewelry findings, mix in a few images and instantly a picture of what was is now new and inspired.
