Owyhee was the first county created in Idaho in 1863, during the heydays of the gold and silver rush. It’s the second largest county in Idaho, situated in the southwest, encompassing scenic mountains, desert canyons, historic Silver City, the Snake River. It’s ranching country - the Joyce Ranch was established in 1865 and still runs cattle on the ranges. It’s riding country. Saddle up your horse, bring your hat, and come experience the Owyhee wild country.
The artwork of Owyhee Designs reflect the colors and flavor of the Owyhee country. The barbed wire designs come from rusted Owyhee county barbed wire. The bracelet and necklace stones reflect the colors of the country: pink, rust, tan of the desert; magenta, plum, crimson of the rhyolite cliffs; green of the sagebrush; blue of the Snake River.

Owyhee Christmas in June

June 10 2015

Who needs a blue spruce or white fir Christmas tree? Where you gonna find it in the summer on the desert? Who needs it only in December anyway? Here in Owyhee you just have to adapt. Overgrown (6 foot), out-of-control, invasive thistles happily stand in as Christmas trees in July. Happy Holidays!
