About Patricia Watkins

My experience with jewelry is a love affair with designing! My first experience came with Zarah Company when they spotted colorful cows in one of my paintings. They liked the whimsy and soon I was designing sterling silver animals and florals topped with enamel in a cloisonné style. We added beads and chain to some designs and I fell in love with beads also!


So I started collecting beads as I traveled and soon figured I should use them rather than pretend they were in a hyperbolic vault staying youthful while I aged. This enjoyable journey began in my home town of San Diego and continued after moving to Santa Barbara.


My style is classic, but creative, with an easy elegance meant for day or nighttime wear. I sometimes find my hands making dressy designs, but casual describes my life style! I work with pearls, vintage beads, gemstones and crystals set in metals such as gold, Sterling Silver and brass.


Creating and sharing jewelry is my passion in life, inspired by the beauty of nature and the world around me. My work is all one-of-a-kind and I hope you find as much pleasure in wearing my jewelry pieces as I have in creating them for you!
