The works of Sedona jewelry maker Marge Schwartz will be on display at Sedona Treasures.

Sedona jeweler Marge Schwartz will be at Sedona Treasures at the the Hillside Shops presenting her fine beaded jewelry and her other art media on Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 11 and 12, from 1 to 3 p.m.

Marge is the featured "Jeweler of the Month" at Sedona Treasures, a gallery dedicated to supporting local artists.

The entire month of August Sedona Treasures will feature Marge's jewelry, so come and enjoy the Art of Nature with Marge.

A true love of nature and enjoyment of being outside drew Marge and Bill Schwartz to Sedona in 2002. Their appreciation of color and texture grew as they explored the isolated areas of Arizona collecting minerals. The couple has been active in the local gem and mineral club where they continue to explore new areas in hopes of finding even more beautiful stones to feature in her one of a kind beaded jewelry. The stones are cut free hand and polished by her husband and Marge designs her pieces without patterns so that each one is as unique as the stone itself. "I think each stone has a story to tell", she said "and I make that story complete with my jewelry designs." The beading process gives her the flexibility to incorporate other stones and beads into the piece resulting in a medley of color and texture.

After more than 30 years studying and teaching Biology, Marge retired and began to enjoy the wonders of the natural world. She began growing gourds and fashioning them with other natural materials collected and lovingly preserved. "My favorite gourds are done in a stone finish with paintings of spirit horses or Kokopelli reminiscent of petro glyphs we have observed. " Her other paintings on gourds and natural wood reflect the quiet beauty o f the great Southwest that they now call home.

Sedona Treasures is located at 671 State Route 179 at the Hillside shops and is across from the Javelina Cantina Restaurant.

Beverages and snacks will be served during the receptions on Saturday and Sunday.
