Jewelry-Making

My jewelry design aesthetic strives for an Everyday Diva vibe. In fact, when I regularly made and sold jewelry, about fifteen years ago, that was the name of my brand.

Everyday Diva: Unique Jewelry for the Understated Divine.

Although I sometimes worked in patterns, I did not duplicate exactly my individual designs but made only one of each piece, so that each piece would be, more or less, one of a kind. I have always favored real gemstones and pearls and seashells, as well as sterling silver, but I’ve also worked with especially pretty art glass, cloisonné, Swarovski crystals, some other metals, and interesting pendants.

The pieces shown here on this page are available for sale. Leave a comment here or email me at forest.of.diamonds [at] gmail.com if you have questions or for price and availability.
