Ruthie working on her jewelry.

For First Friday on Feb. 1, Tehachapi Treasure Trove will feature Ruthie Stockdale maker of Ruthie's Little Pretties. Ruthie specializes in working with Swarovski crystals. Her jewelry sparkles whether under the sun or in lamp light. Her line includes earrings, bracelets, necklaces, anklets and charms.

Playing with jewelry since her teen years, Ruthie has been seriously making and selling jewelry since 2000 when she discovered Swarvoski crystals. She is self-taught and has learned by trial and error what works for her. For several years she sold jewelry at home parties. At one point she worked in a hair salon where she created custom jewelry for customers while they were getting their hair done. Doing beadwork is her passion. She has many pieces that would make wonderful gifts for someone special on Valentines Day.

Born in Ontario, Canada, Ruthie moved to the United States with her family when she was 5 years old. She became a naturalized citizen in 2001. After growing up in the San Fernando Valley, she earned her living delivering Sparkletts and later as a heavy equipment operator. She has lived in San Diego, Los Angeles, Fresno and Las Vegas, not necessarily in that order. She moved to Tehachapi about 7 months ago.

First Friday will be celebrated at Tehachapi Treasure Trove on Friday evening, Feb. 1, from 5 to 8 p.m. With our 50 plus vendors and artists, things are always changing at Tehachapi Treasure Trove, and First Friday is an excellent time to come on in and check out our uncommonly eclectic and unusually unique stuff, created by your friends and neighbors right here in Tehachapi.
