The Ring

I mentioned before that we will be launching a new collection soon.

Here it is!

Beautiful and gorgeous rings made with semi-precious gemstones bezel set with the band and bezel made from sterling silver dipped in 24k solid gold.  The gemstones came out so beautifully and I’m liking how the color of the band turned out.  Most of the time silver dipped in gold usually turns out very yellowish gold.  Something I don’t quite feel like having.  But the color of this one turned out pretty pretty good.

Wear them on their own like this:

Or use several of them on your fingers like this:

Or stack them up one by one to create a whole new look!

All birthstone gemstones are available such as:

Happy Valentine’s Day!

How did your day go?

The hubs and I spent it at home.  Yes, it was just another day at work for us and school day for the little one but we went home early and spent more time together.  The little one gave us a card they did at school while the hubs gave me this:

The people at work wore something red but I didn’t and wore my usual blackoffice suit.  I didn’t even think of wearing any red accessory.  My boss noticed this and I realized, maybe I should have worn something to commemorate the event?

For those in the same situation, here are a few things available in my shop:

24k vermeil filigree ear studs, handmade discs, Swarovski crystals

Austrian crystals, red coral, 14k gold

Garnet ear studs, carnelian, 14k gold

February Birthstone

February’s birthstone is Amethyst.  It’s rich purple color exudes a mysterious energy that evokes calmness.  Most people say that amethyst is spiritually protective of the wearer and can provide contentment.

Amethyst is closely related to Bacchus (godl of wine), Dionysus (god of libation) and Diana (moon goddess and goddess of nature).  Known by psychics to cure sleep disorders and nightmares, this month’s birthstone is believed to also help overcome alcohol addiction.

For those born on this month, here are a few amethyst jewelry available now at my store:

Amethyst is not my birthstone color but its my favorite 🙂

Trellis

The request:  A pair of dangler earrings in the shape of a leaf using garnet gemstones.

The dilemma: None.

The process:  The client wanted a pair of garnet earrings.  I suggested that we add more than just garnet because this gemstone has a rich wine red color.

Combining it with other gemstones in the same color family will give the piece life and vibrance.  So I scoured my suppliers to see what they had and I found these:

Gorgeous gorgeous Tundra sapphires in red-orange, orange, and olive!

With this project, I needed to take my time.  Remember, I do not sketch.  I knew that I could only work on it during my good creative mood (read: when I feel like it inspired) to achieve the best results.

Fast-forward to 1.4 months, this is how it came out:

As you can see I’ve attached it to peridot cubic zirconia in 14k gold bezel set ear studs.

All other gold is 14k rolled yellow gold.

The Things I Do for the Things I Love to Do

Stayed up ’til 4am this morning.  If the husband did not convince (read: force) me to go to bed, I’d be probably wake up until now.

Nevertheless, I surprisingly woke up after 5 hours without feeling any grogginess and finally completed the new set of orders 🙂

Here they are for your viewing pleasure:

Alexandrite: An Update

A few posts ago, I talked about this mysterious gemstone: its history, properties, characteristics.  I also wondered how I could incorporate it in my designs.

I love working with Alexandrite and so far, these are what I came up with:

The 2nd and 3rd photos were custom (personalized) requests.  The 1st and 4th are still available here and here.

Alexandrite is hard to get by so once my suppliers have them available, I stock up on them right away.  I have made a recent purchase:

Stay tuned to this blog to see what I’ve made these into 🙂

WordPress Theme Crisis

For those of you who are frequent readers here, you will notice the various  constant changes in my WordPress Theme….

The truth is, WordPress has a lot of nice themes to choose from and I have been enamored by all of them.  I have tried dark backgrounds thinking that it will help make the colors of my accessories and jewelry pop out.  Wrong.  First, my widgets were nowhere in sight and it was sooo dark! It turned out to be very heavy and too strong to the overall look of what the brand is all about.

So today, I braved the themes section and chose a more, light and airy theme.  I am not a techie kind of girl but when my widgets disappeared with my former theme, they somehow magically appeared! 

I think I will stick to this theme from now on.  It is minimalism perfected! 

It does not look complicated.

And most importantly, my photos seem to shine more.

That’s what’s important right? 🙂

So head on here to check out what I have in store 😉

A New Challenge

The Request:  Sparkly bib necklace

The client wanted one that was sparkly and had a garden them.  Not green but colorful.  Now, it is a common thing to think about Swarovski crystals when you say “sparkly” right?  But I did not want to be ordinary but wanted this project to be extraordinary! 

I could not work with diamonds because the client had a budget as well.  So why not Russian diamonds?

 

Not quite. 

But almost there 🙂

Some Custom Orders

One thing I like about custom orders is the liberality and the extent of creativeness I can do with a piece 🙂

Here are a few requests I have recently made:

If you’d like me to create something magical for you too, do let me know 🙂
