Tall with bale sterling silver chain is 18″inches long Total weight 27.7grams great addition to your collection In Native American beliefs, the bear paw is usually considered a way to call for the power of the animal spirit, or as an indication of the presence of the spirit. It is a symbol that represents inner strength. But then, everything changed during a trip to Tucson. She saw stones and rocks and started visualizing what they might look like in a piece of jewelry. The images in her head were a contemporary version of Southwest jewelry. When she got home from that trip, she told her husband, Jim, I’m going to learn how to silversmith. Not only did Jim support her new pursuit, but he joined her to learn silversmithing. He also learned lapidary, the cutting and polishing of stones. Judi’s handcrafted jewelry designs hit the market at just the right time. No one else was creating a contemporary Southwest design that featured brilliant color combinations of native stones. Her business, known as Designs by Judi Yates, quickly grew in popularity, as she and Jim participated in 26 shows a year across the country. As the business grew, she hired seven silversmiths to help her keep up with demand. When her first granddaughter was born, her daughter asked her when she was going to slow down. Judi decided to open a local gallery instead of traveling. She first opened the doors of Yates Gallery seventeen years ago on Avenue of the Fountains. Over time, she converted it to a co-op with other local artists, renaming it the Fountain Hills Artist’s Gallery. Judi retired two years ago, but the gallery is still going strong today. When Judi was still traveling, she noticed that Santa Fe, New Mexico had artists gather weekly in the town center. This inspired her in 2009 to petition the Town of Fountain Hills to host a similar gathering on Avenue of the Fountains. Since then, she has been managing Art on the Avenue from October through April every year. Local businesses love the traffic from the event, making it their busiest day of the week.
