Our New Jewelry for Puerto Vallarta "SHE ROCKS"



As mentioned in a previous post,
we're creating a new line in our jewelry collection for
Puerto Vallarta, Mexico & other resort markets

The element which will bind the collection together is the CIRCLE.
Please let me know your thoughts, either pro or con on this new work

remember, these are our own in-studio photos
so not professionally photographed yet
please forgive the quirky-ness

presenting the 1st glimpse of
"She Rocks"

sterling silver rings which are hand wire-wrapped in black & gold wire
embellished with faceted black spinel & gold beads
finished with the same black spinel & 14kgf tubes
retail $395

comments from our showroom in NYC say the hand wire-wrapping of the rings
(which is hugely labor-intensive) gives the work an artisan-look
which is nowhere in the marketplace

this piece is made with 14kgf hammered rings of various sizes fashioned
into a hand-made chain creating a lariat style closure
Robin's Egg Blue Polished Chalcedony Nuggets
with Large Faceted Aquamarine Nuggets
retail $ 295.00

faceted london blue topaz briolettes

same style necklace, made with beautiful rainbow moonstone rondelles
hammered 14kgf rings on a hand-made chain
ending with a huge natural quartz pendant

17" Carved Jade with Polished Crystal Quartz Rounds
14kgf beads & clasp
retail $155

4-strand Hematite Tubes with Sterling Silver Rings
designer's custom solid sterling clasp
retail $150

Earrings, Small Sterling Silver Hand-Made Earwires
sterling ring wrapped with sterling wire
faceted onyx pear drop
retail $95

all earrings in this group will be styled like these,
wire-wrapped rings will be sized small-medium-large
in any stone we use in the collection

again, forgive the photography, we shoot everything we design
as a reference point for ourselves, even if we dismantle it
and start over

3-Strand 14kgf necklace with Faceted Chrome Diopside Pears
interspersed un-equally, without a definite pattern with hand
wire-wrapped gold circles, all assymetrical
note: Chrome Diopside (horrible name) is a bright green stone
found only where diamonds are found
retail $395

3 Different Necklaces Worn Layered
the 3-strand Chrome Diopside piece
with 1 necklace made of a hand-beaded chain of
tourmaline barrel-shaped stones & 1 Large Ring
retail $225
& a separate necklace of the same beaded
chain with tourmalines and giant aventurine nuggets
& wire-wrapped rings (can be worn doubled & also as a belt)
retail $ 225

the triple circle dangle, not completely refined yet,
don't like the interlocking circles, would rather see the rings flat against skin
with the stone dangling for some movement,
which I believe is imperative in all of my jewelry designs...
the movement is what makes it sexy & feminine

Necklace of Faceted Black Onyx Tubes
with exceptionally intricate end piece

 medium double circle woven earrings
with onyx pears

  • Unique, Fashionable, Resort Wear Earrings
    feathers, organza & dangling chain
    retail $55

  • silk flower & feather earrings for fun resort wear

    center dangle of authentic red & white coral branches
    & turquoise on sterling chain
    retail $70

     love to hear from everyone
