Announcement   Artisan jewelry in silver & stone.

DixSterling accepts PayPal, credit, debit, etsy gift cards and Apple Pay and usually ships within two business days.

Visit <dixsterling.blogspot.ca> to see how I handcraft this artisan jewelry from sterling silver, precious and semi-precious stones and, sometimes, a touch of gold. I love bringing a design to life, cutting, hammering and polishing sterling silver and often adding color with a well-placed gemstone or unique piece of agate.

It is always a thrill to hear from my happy customers:

"Wonderful little delicate pair of birthstone earrings, designed specially for me! Thanks Dix"

"WOW! That is incredible service! Thought you would be interested in knowing that I looked at just under 80,000 pendants on Etsy, and chose your design as the perfect one."

If you want a different gemstone or an item designed just for you, please convo me. I'd love to create something that is yours alone. Custom orders take from 2 to 4 weeks to complete and I will keep you in the loop as I progress with private photos or posts to my blog.

I bought this as a Christmas gift for a friend. She absolutely loved it. The pin is gorgeous and came with very nice gift wrapping.

It takes a lot of file work to get those edges smooth and comfortable.

About

Finding Joy in Silver and Stone

I always played with art, from crayons through pastels and charcoal, to oils, acrylics and watercolors. Then, one day, a flyer for a silver jewelry course caught my eye. Intrigued, I enrolled — and fell in love. Being able to manipulate metal into a shape of my choosing was pure delight. Texturing it was magic. Melting and pouring silver was alchemy. I was hooked.

I opened DixSterling in 2009 and it took awhile to get the hang of etsy. I had a LOT to learn about product photograph, promotion and social media. In May, 2013, I took a deep breath and began blogging. I also joined the Creative Jewellers Guild of British Columbia — a great place to share ideas and techniques with other artisan jewelers <http://www.creativejewellersguild.com/Home_Page.html>. I just keep on learning and few things give me as much pleasure as sitting at the bench and picking up my torch or a hammer.

    About 20 years ago, on impulse, I enrolled in a silversmithing course and fell in love with silver and stones. Everything in my shop springs from my head and hands. I hope one of these pieces will become your signature piece.
