John and Lauri Maeder, of Desert Lace Studio, have discovered a way to remove the intricate and beautiful fiber from within the pads of the prickly pear cactus. Rolling the fiber against copper and sterling silver, they emboss the cactus pattern into the metal to make unique jewelry. The rolling process crushes the fiber, so no two pieces are alike. They also use the skin of the cactus along with the fiber and produce hats, furniture, wall art, sculpture, lighting, kaleidoscopes and more. Check out all they have to offer at their studio in Building C (main floor).
