This is where I am supposed to tell you a little bit about me, so here goes!
My name is Barrie and I am Sunstone Designs. I live in Colorado, in the southeastern part of the state where I am an artist, dog breeder and wanna be farmer on 40 acres in the middle of nowhere. I have been accused of being a hermit and a loner and while I do love people I might resemble that remark, a little bit. All that said, you might have surmised that I am a natural kind of girl and I try to bring that to my jewelry, it is minimal, functional, comfortable and many of my pieces reflect my love of animals and nature.
However, as much as I love jewelry, believe it or not, I rarely wear jewelry! Really, on 40 acres in the middle of nowhere there isn’t much reason to, so, I try to infuse my love of jewelry into the pieces that I create for you. I strive to create pieces that speak to the heart, capture a moment, remember a loved one with a smile and bring comfort too.
My dogs are my family, I do have kids and grandkids, but all are grown and live in other states. The dogs live in the house, or it might be more accurate to say that I live with them! If you look in the dictionary under Crazy Dog Lady, you’ll probably find my picture and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Manny, was the reason for founding Manny’s Munchies, gourmet goodies for discerning dogs. You’ll find us on Facebook. More about me? I love photography, I wish I had more time for it. I used to LOVE showing my dogs but have not been able to since moving to Colorado and I am looking for a kennel/ranch hand, so message me if you are interested or know someone who might be!
I’ll leave you with a few of my favorite photos taken on or near my land, I hope you enjoy them, hope I haven’t overshared and hope you enjoy my Sunstone Designs site and my jewelry. Oh, back to the jewelry, I usually make each piece as it’s ordered, ask for a 3 week leeway and anything custom or stamped is not returnable. I am also happy to work with you to create the piece of your dreams and if it isn’t something I can do, I am happy to refer you to a fellow artist who can. Keep scrolling past the pictures for more!
