ClassicSparklers’ Rings on Etsy

I have always been a traditional girl.

One ring on the ring finger.  Both ring fingers, not in the middle, and definitely in not all!

Fast forward to a decade — to the minimalist age, I’d say.  And this is what you’ll see on me:

Not at all tacky as I originally thought.  Its quite a bit more classy, timeless and edgy!  This fascination with stacking rings had me decide to finally bring them to the Classicsparklers brand.  Most of those I first posted on my online shop have been sold and here are the three available ones:

We accept custom pieces as well*.

Nevertheless, here is what my lovely client has reserved:

These rings take some time to make so if you prefer to have one customized, perhaps as a gift for that special someone for Christmas, or for yourself, it will be best to place the order now.  You can leave a message in etsy or at joanne@classicsparklers.com.

* But as with all online shops, some place orders and then forget about them, leaving the pieces waiting for forever 😦  That’s a little disappointing fact we all have experienced because we lose potential sales and/or customers who would want that piece for herself.  We’ve all had our own share so I have made it a point to wait for a week (I’d appreciate it more if clients communicate to me that it will take them a while coz perhaps they’re on a trip or something, and in that case, I will hold the item longer than a week).

Rings

As I’ve mentioned before, I am thinking of starting on working with rings.

That was the first and only ring I’ve made until a few weeks ago when a client requested a ring to match the set of Filigree set she was ordering.  I got excited, composed myself (which took about a week), then started to work on her ring.

The result:

As you can see, the band, without the pearl attached is quite pretty by itself!  Now, this I will definitely make one for me 🙂

Oh, did I mention that the client loved the Alexandrite ring that she ordered one for herself as well?  Here is hers:

I think that this band in filigree setting will also look good with semi precious gemstones 🙂

Spheres

The request:  Full nest setting.  Round. Clear center.

The dilemma: Full nest setting is hard to do because of the shape especially if there’s nothing inside it.  It had to be a perfect circle.

The result:

That is the reason why I love collaborating with clients.  The exchange of ideas give me a certain high.  Its the interchange of thoughts in the design process that keeps me energized and inspired.

Mughal Princess

The request: re-work the  client’s freshwater pearl earring and pendant.  Use sterling silver.

The dilemma: how?

The solution:

Make my mark with the J.Pedreria Collection’s signature nest setting.  Add a little sparkle with a diamond cubic zirconia ear stud in bezel setting.  It came out like this:

Looks nice.  Sparkly.  Elegant. Classic. 

But remember, ClassicSparklers is all about versatility and creativity.  Stopping here cannot and does not put those two principles into place. 

How about if we add some tassels?

Wow.  The execution is perfect and the earrings become ostentatiously beautiful and glamorous!

But you can’t and do not use this kind of earring to the work place right? I do not think this will go well with a suit. 

So let’s make it more versatile: MAKE THE TASSELS DETACHABLE!!

What about the pendant?

I decided to just add the nest setting. 

When you have an ornate earring, the necklace should be very simple. Amp it up but do not create a confusion between your neckline and/or your ears/head. 

Besides, you can remove both tassels of each earring and add them to the pendant, and VIOLA!

I must admit that this was a very very very very challenging piece. 

For the tassels I used beautiful Israelicut white topaz from India, silver pyrite also from India and Swarovski crystals.  I also made a nice bead cap.  All other components are sterling silver.

I plan to make more pieces like this in the future. 

If you want to have one customized for you (something to wear for the holidays perhaps? *wink*), leave a comment or send me a message here.

Everyday Necklaces

I like pairing my jewelry with the clothes I wear everyday. 

Well, not exactly pairing per se.  I just like wearing accessories to complete the whole ensemble.  They may not be in the same color family or theme but they should at least complement or highlight the look I am going for.

However, one cannot buy every and all kinds of jewelry! And knowing us, girls, with the way we love buying clothes, there should at least be that versatile piece of accessory to fit all kinds of look.

This dilemma can only be solved by affordable but elegant and timeless pieces that you can change everyday! 

Thus, I created the “Everyday”  Necklace. 

Wear it with your business suit, your casual outfit, or even your evening dress.  Pair it with a collared top and jeans during dress down days.  The versatility of the necklaces are enhanced by their unique designs.  Subtle but creative.  Semi precious gemstones, South Sea shell pearls, freshwater pearls, faceted Austrian crystals and more wire wrapped in 14k gold filled (rolled gold).  They hang from dainty chains that glimmer as they “disappear” into your skin.  A little twist and a little turn here or there, wait for the chain to catch the light and give out that sparkle.

The J. Pedreria for ClassicSparklers Everyday Necklace Collection is now available here.

Now for some eye candy 🙂
