About My Jewelry

Ive been a gourd artist for about four years and I specialize in jewelry made from gourd pieces we often refer to as" gourd shards." Browse these pages and find a great piece that will turn heads and start a conversation. My work is made from an organic material that gets recycled from a cracked gourd which is headed for the burn pile into a piece of art. I set up a booth at Arizona Gourd Festival in February and sell online here. This site is especially for my referring costumers and those who just want to take a look at something different. Please read more about my process under About My Jewelry link.

" I am also a "zentangled-inspired artists and have another site that showcases my drawings and gourd jewelry with zentangles patterns. Visit Bettie Lake's Zendrawing Gallery and check out this new art form!
