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
Garnet ear studs, carnelian, 14k gold
Carnelian, orange jade, 14k gold

Red turquoise, garnets, sterling silver
Happy Valentine’s Day to everyone!!!

One thing that always gets me excited with this little business endeavor of mine is when a client requests for something I have not done before, meaning: custom work.
This always presents as a challenge to me because I get to be creative as much as I can without sacrificing the idea or theme that the client wants. Most of the time, the request will just be a vague as asking for a specific stone, like garnet to represent her birth month, which is January. With all the exchange of conversations we’ve had over the internet, emails, mostly, I had to make a necklace and earring set using garnet gemstones.
When I make custom work, I always put into consideration what the personality of the client is. Expect me to always ask:
1. What is it for or where will it be used?
2. When do you want it done?
3. Any other special consideration?
After taking all these into consideration, of course, I will have to end up with a design that will also include my signature nest setting. I will check my inventory to see if I have all the materials. If not, I will visit my supplier the following weekend. Otherwise, the creativity begins.
During the process, my original idea will evolve. Most of the time I will not stick to my original design but instead, I will make it better! I think that’s where creativity is best measured. It is the ability to innovate and create something while in the middle of trying to meet all the specifics. In the end, I will be happy with the result, and the client happier than I.
So, anyway, here is one of my custom work.
Garnet. Nest setting. Necklace and earring set. Perfect!
So many things to do so little time!
Instead of backtracking my lack of posts, I’ll give you a brief overview of some of the pieces i’ve made for my winter collection.
I’ll be back in a few to post more! stay tuned!
I can start feeling the Christmas spirit with all the greens, and reds and blues and white!
Rock crystal is the name given to all clear colorless quartz and is the transparent variety of the silica mineral quartz that is valued for its clarity and total lack of colour or flaws. Vessels and spheres have been carved from large crystals since ancient times, and the application of the word crystal to fine glassware derives from this practice. Rock crystal formerly was used extensively as a gemstone (usually brilliant-cut), and although the resemblance to diamond is remote, the widespread use of colourless quartz in jewelry gave rise to the use of the word diamond …
Rock crystal is an alternate and traditional birthstone for the month of April.
My fascination for this stone lead me to create jewelry that mimics as well as make the most out of its sparkly beauty!
All available now in my shop 🙂
It’s a lazy, quiet Sunday morning. I’m done with the household chores, have given the little one his bath, and now we sit side by side as I listen to him read his books. I, on the other hand, have my coffee mug at my side as I go through hundreds of photos I’ve taken the past few days of new pieces that I’ll be posting over the next few weeks. However, excitements get me as I can’t wait to share with you what’s in store. 🙂
So, just for you, loyal readers, you get a sneak peek of up and coming pieces from me 🙂
