• Tribal Bear Designs combines “Old World” beads and pendants into jewelry that is in harmony with the Earth and contemporary life. Geri Verble, jewelry design artist, often uses Ethiopian, Moroccan, and Tibetan beads and pendants as her inspiration and incorporates tribal and ethnic beads into one-of-a-kind pieces of jewelry. She also creates contemporary southwestern designs employing turquoise, spiny oyster, and coral.
