Showcase of Past Work - Diana

Hi everyone.  I am showcasing some of my past custom work, to give an idea of what I can do.  This work is from some three years ago, but remains one of my proudest pieces.  This is Diana.  Her boyfriend, Dom, asked me to make a necklace and two sets of earrings (short and long) for her birthday.  Her favorite color is red, he told me.  Click on any of the photos to enlarge.  =)

Pictured here are the necklace and the shorter, more formal pair of earrings I made for her.  They are crystal AB, fireopal and lt. siam Swarovski crystals accented with sterling silver stardust beads and spacers on sterling silver pins and hooks.

Here she is posing with the long, flashier earrings.  The necklace is made of the same crystals and sterling spacers, set on invisible fishing line with sterling silver stoppers and a sterling silver clasp.  The earrings are made of the same and have a wonderful floating quality.

I think she may have lost one of the earrings, so a year later almost, she asked me to make her another pair for prom.   She sent me these pictures:


If you'd like something similar, or something altogether different, please email me at!  I love taking custom orders.  =)
