Sweet Dreams - butterscotch quartzite ring, enhancer and the beads are gorgeous shades - rhodonite, turq, citrine . .

Santa Rosa - bright red coral 40" beads, the enhancer was a diamond shape with red, pink and medium shade of coral . . very cool!

Desert Diva - multicolored oval enhancer . . can't remember the rest of that collection - Harriet, help!

Juggie...thank you for this thread! Kath...thank you for your pictures. Regarding "Desert Diva" - I only have the enhancer. Next to Silver Rodeo (love, love) one of the first pieces I ever bought. This is a big one - almost 3". Heavy sterling silver and a huge red carnelian cabochon. Brass filigree on the front with bezel set stones: 2 citrines, 2 emeralds (oh yes) and a lapis in the center. Love this piece. It is not for the faint hearted, lol. Jug, I am trying to remember how to post photos.

I, too, have started a photo library. Trouble is - I don't know most the names of my older treasures. Keep posting, ladies.

Re: Sincerely Southwest, Carolyn Pollack, American West Collection Names

CL and Kath were off and running!!!! Kath the Gardenia original collection was a three strand statement necklace with a drop in the front, a three strand bracelet drop earrings and ring. The pictures you posted I actually have both of them. The first one I don't know if it was ever even presented. There is also a ring that goes with it and well as the second pic. I have the long strand bead necklace too.

Re: Sincerely Southwest, Carolyn Pollack, American West Collection Names

Cooking hey lady! You really went at the list! Many of which I have or have had...hey, you mentioned the Spanish Lace with the black, white an turquoise. Is that the enhancer that has the round white mother of pearl checker board faceted piece in the center of a kite shaped enhancer? I forgot that Spanish Lace collection...do you have the original Blue Lace one too? It goes way back to when I first started collecting....so I know you were collecting at that time as you were before me. I love the necklace with the blue lace collection and would love to see them bring it back with other stone choices.
