Announcement   I design and handcraft this artisan jewelry from sterling silver, precious and semi-precious stones and, sometimes, a touch of gold.

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

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 posts to my blog: dixsterling.blogspot.ca

Kind words from 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."

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.

This ring is pure perfection. Being squared off on the side with the moonstone, it sits perfectly without swiveling. The stone is of a very high quality. This is a ring that will be worn frequently, because it's got a sweet, simple elegance and will go with anything.

I used the steel burnisher to smooth the silver bezels over the stones.

About

Finding Joy in Silver and Stone

I always played with art, from crayons through pastels and charcoal, to oils, acrylics and watercolors. For many years, we lived in aVictorian farmhouse and my studio was huge. Later, when we downsized to a floating home on the Fraser River, "my space" got smaller and painting got set aside. Then a flyer for a silver jewelry course caught my eye. "Smaller work space" thought I, so I enrolled — and fell in love. Although my husband's arthritic knee finally forced us to leave the river, its ever-changing surfaces still feed my love of texture. My pieces are often hammered, brushed, scratched or reticulated (I LOVE reticulation) to provide a variety of textures.

I opened DixSterling in 2009 and it took awhile to get the hang of etsy. I had a LOT to learn about product photography. At least my PR background helped with writing item descriptions. Then came getting involved in etsy teams, blogs (mine is http://dixsterling.blogspot.ca/) and social media. Meanwhile, I joined the Creative Jewellers Guild of British Columbia where I can share ideas and techniques with other artisan jewelers <http://www.creativejewellersguild.com/Home_Page.html>.

I never stop learning and few things give me as much pleasure as sitting at the bench and picking up my torch or hammer.

    About 15 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 one of your favorite treasures.
