Liza Gene Sanchez

Liza Gene Sanchez
"Although I was born and raised in northern Illinois, it was the mountains of New Mexico where I finally found my home. The unique landscapes and special aura of the region give me inspiration and serenity.

I have always been intrigued by natural forms and textures, especially upon close examination. Flowers, pods, even rocks fascinate me. My cholla wood designs were inspired by the spiky shrub-like cholla cactus that grows abundantly in our high deserts. When it dries, the wood forms a tube-like stick with many elongated holes; its lines are quite beautiful. I start with a small piece of a stick, which I file and mold. By using this basic component, either in wax or in metal, in different combinations, I can create endless variations. I don't try to duplicate nature, I try to capture my impressions of its essence."

Ms. Sanchez has a BFA in Art Education with a minor in painting and an MA with emphasis in metals, both from the University of Illinois in Champagne-Urbana. She lives and works in her studio just north of Española, New Mexico with her husband and their two large dogs.

Falk Burger

Falk Burger
"To create objects that touch the soul, an intensely personal object, is one of the major aims of my work."

The Golden Eye is very pleased to be representing the work of artist Falk Burger. Falk was born in Germany and was educated in Colorado. He apprenticed there under R. Scott Ver Lee and Jens Bisgaard of Gusterman Silversmiths. Falk began producing and selling his own work more than thirty years ago; his pieces have been represented in galleries in New York, Hawaii, Michigan, Massachusetts and New Mexico and have been shown at the Denver Art Museum, Worcester Crafts Center in Massachusetts, and the Bellevue Art Museum in Washington. The jewelry he creates is powerful, raw, and magical. The centerpiece of these creations is usually an exceptional stone that Falk has mined and cut to enhance its natural beauty. Working with rough cut diamonds, iridescent andradite garnets, or Mexican fire opals, the gems seem to ignite from their settings of high karat gold and sterling silver.

Jewelry Info

Opal and Tourmaline

Opal and Tourmaline
Water, sky, fire, and rainbows. All these elements of nature seem to be embodied in the magnificent opal.

It is October's birthstone.

The Australian aborigines tell the story of the Creator coming down to earth from heaven on a rainbow to bring the message of peace to humans. Where his feet touched the ground, it became alive with opalescent color.

It is a fact that 95% of the world's opals are mined in the outback of Australia.

Opals are composed of a mineraloid gel, a mineral-like substance that does not demonstrate crystallinity as most gems do. It is deposited in rock fissures, such as limonite, sandstone or basalt. The small spheres of gel cause interference and refraction manifestations, resulting in the unique color play of the opal.

The opal is made up of at least 3% water, but can have a water content as high as 20%. It can become brittle when stored dry, and the color play may pale when exposed to heat for a long period. It is best to wear your opals regularly. They need to absorb the humidity from the air and the skin. They are rated a 5.5-6 on the Mohs scale, not very hard. Caution is needed in order to avoid stress and abrasion to the stone.

The tourmaline is also recognized as a birthstone for October. It may be a good alternative for the person who wants to wear their jewelry a little harder . The tourmaline is 7-7.5 on the Mohs scale, making it a very durable stone.

The word tourmaline means "stone with mixed color." They are found in nature in virtually every hue of the rainbow, often with multiple colors in the same stone. The watermelon tourmaline, with three distinct colors, is one of the most fascinating specimens.

Mined mainly in Brazil and Africa, tourmaline is one of the most utilized stones in jewelry today. Rubellite describes a deep red tourmaline, Paraiba, an intense blue green, and Canary, a golden yellow. No two tourmalines are exactly alike, making them a perfect choice for one-of-a-kind pieces.

Legend has classified the tourmaline as the stone of love and friendship, rendering them firm and lasting.

Turquoise

Turquoise
We sometimes hear someone remark that turquoise jewelry is a "fad", or that they don't wear "Indian jewelry."
Well, if turquoise is a fad, it's got to be the longest running trend ever, as history records its popularity over 7,000 years ago! Archeologists have recorded that the oldest known piece of jewelry is a gold and turquoise bracelet found on the arm of a mummified Egyptian Queen, around 5000 B.C.

The area once known as Persia, today's Iran, has been producing gem quality turquoise for centuries, as has China.
Native Americans have worked the stone since before the time of Christ. When the Navajo, Hopi, and Pueblo people learned silversmithing from the Spaniards in the 1800's, the stone was incorporated into their pieces. This jewelry was the precursor to the work we identify today as Indian jewelry.

Cerrillos, New Mexico is thought to be the location of the oldest turquoise mines in the country. Prior to the 1920's, the state was the country's largest producer; it is more or less exhausted today.

Arizona currently produces the most turquoise of value domestically. Two mines exist in the state; one is the Sleeping Beauty Mine in Globe, the other is the Kingman Mine that operates alongside a copper mine outside of the city. There are many other mines throughout the Southwest, many of which have been exhausted.

Turquoise is made up of phosphorus, copper, and aluminum. The copper is the mineral responsible for the identifying robin's egg blue color that is so valued in the stone.
The mother rock, or matrix, can often be seen running throughout the stone in a network pattern, adding interest and enhancing the beauty of the turquoise.

Most turquoise on the market today has had some kind of treatment to enhance or stabilize the stone. These procedures reduce the value of the stone in varying degrees.
Only about six percent of stones today are what we call "natural turquoise". These have not been altered in any way from their natural state. Stabilizing the turquoise is done by impregnating the stone with an epoxy-type substance to make it more durable.

It is important that when purchasing turquoise jewelry that the salesperson is able to relate if the piece has been treated, or is natural.

Being a phosphate mineral, turquoise is inherently fragile and sensitive to solvents; perfume and other cosmetics will attack the finish and may alter the color of turquoise gems, as will skin oils and most commercial jewelry cleaning fluids. Prolonged exposure to direct sunlight may discolor or dehydrate turquoise. Care should be taken when wearing such jewels: Cosmetics, sunscreen, and hair spray should be applied before putting on turquoise jewelery.

After use, turquoise should be gently cleaned with a soft cloth to avoid a build up of residue, and should be stored in its own container to avoid being scratched by harder gems. Turquoise can also be adversely affected if stored in an airtight container-it likes to breathe.

Peridot

Peridot
This bright and vibrant stone has caught the attention of humans for centuries. Some historians believe that at least some of the "emeralds" that Cleopatra wore were actually peridots. It is a relatively hard mineral, 6.5-7 on the Mohs scale.

For many years the U.S. was the largest producer of peridot. It is mined in Arizona and New Mexico . China and Pakistan are now challenging the States for that title.

At one time large quantities of peridot know for their superb color and clarity were being imported from Myanmar, (formally Burma). With the socialist government in power now, the production has been curtailed to the point that it is no longer a factor in the industry.

According to folklore, wearing peridot brings luck and success.
