New Stones

I have been working really hard over the last couple weeks trying to get my shop ready, my studying organized and my packing started!

My husband got a great job offer in another city so we are moving to Ottawa in less than 2 months.

Here is a sneak peak of some of the few stones coming in! Lots of new jewelry will be in the making…I just hope I can get everything up before I have to move!

Exciting News

I am so excited!

I will be getting some diamond setting training in Feb! Its a 4 day intensive training program from my own home studio.  I will get an intro to engraving, setting stones in wax, pave, flush, gypsy cabochon, fishtail, cat’s claw etc.

After my training I hope to finally make some beautiful pave diamond slice necklaces and rings! I will most likely offer in silver until I am confident enough to work in gold.

I got some pictures from my supplier of the custom cut slices and they look AMAZING! I will send these out in the next newsletter for those on my mailing list.  More info on the tiny rose cut diamonds noted in the post below, size range is 2-4mm.

And I have some more diamonds on order! Fancy color round rose cuts,  low clarity but ‘gem’ quality in pink, yellow etc. I also have some color treated diamond slices coming in shades of blue and maybe even pink! The color treatment is unpredictable so I am not sure what the results will be….I may also get some solid black slices 🙂

My stock is on order and there are still some custom stones being sourced for color. I am aiming to have everything in hand by end of Feb.

Tambuli Rose Cut Diamond

Here is the batch of tambuli rose cuts. They are completely natural in color and have beautiful gem like colors. Unlike the traditional rose cut the tambuli diamonds have a higher dome.

These diamonds were hand selected for their unique colors. I love the pale yellows, oranges and deep browns. Perfect colors for the fall season.

And since I could not resist I ordered a small batch of 1-2mm tambuli for some very tiny stacking rings or bangles and a few more diamond slices!! I will post these when I have some pictures from my supplier and details will follow on my website!

New Tiny Trims

I love my tiny stacking rings, the fun shapes are delicate and great for layering with existing bands or on their own! I am happy to announce that I have a special line of flower and heart tiny trims coming in over the next few weeks! Items pictured are a tiny daisy, poppy and heart. Some of the items hold stones (1.7mm).

These trims can be soldered onto bands, earrings, jump rings and more! I still have to get the molds made and then get them cast. I am waiting for the company to get back to me on the costs and time line.

I will only be ordering a small batch at this time, if you would like to place an order for these trims please let me know! Silver and 14K rose, yellow, white and green gold is available.

Few More Stones..

Some more lovely diamonds, enjoy! Contact me to get details on sizes and cost to set in gold. Silver may be an option for some if you are looking for prong settings. I will work to try to make some silver bezels from scratch but the work involved will not really be cost effective….

More New Diamonds in Shades of Grey

Beautiful new dainty diamonds. I have figured out my general style of jewelry to be delicate pieces, including setting smaller and difficult stone shapes. I am going to Dubai for training this summer and am going to be taking some courses in the US to introduce myself to bead and channel setting. I would like to be able to complete a few simple projects before the end of this year.

Rainbow Druzy and Large Black Rose Cut Diamond

I need to stop my addiction of buying stones all the time…but then again it is a great investment for my business. I see stones as rare and one of a kind, once they are gone they are gone forever! These are some gorgeous stones I purchased today from my suppliers. I cannot wait to set the druzy with pave around (going for training this year!!) I would like to keep them as pairs but they would also make stunning pendants or a ring. The black diamond is natural and is about 10mm in size! I think I will set this in silver or white gold…depends on the cost because I would like to keep it affordable.

Please message me if you would like to reserve these stones for a custom order.

New Stock

A few new pieces of stock I could not resist plus some new 5mm grey rose cut diamonds arriving next week. I am also working on setting up a separate website for my jewelry and get back into making miniatures and deco items!
