Christmas is in the air, and my bench is overflowing with angels, candy canes and trees! (I feel a little like Santa.) Check back often as new pieces are added daily with lots of fun stocking stuffers and more!
Behind the scenes of the latest photo shoot with my newest pieces; trying something new shooting outside. It's so much fun capturing the sparkle and individuality of each one! Stay tuned for the pieces to be posted here on Etsy.

About

The antiques of yesterday, given new life today.

Hey there! I'm Dory Moryosef, the designer/creator and the you-name-it, I-do-it all person here at Doriest Designs. I'm running my business from my home here in sunny and hot Albuquerque, New Mexico. I share this crazy life with my 3 kids, husband, dog and bunny rabbit. My family is the reason for everything I do and they are my models, assistants, and are always offering plenty of feedback, all the time!

Family was actually how I got started making jewelry. My mom passed away in 2005, and being an only child I inherited her HUGE collection of vintage jewelry. (Some of her pieces go back to Great-Grandma's time.) I put it all away for a year, but I missed my mom a lot so I dug out all the jewelry and started to wear it.
There was a problem though. A lot of it was in need of help, from something simple like polishing to more difficult things (for a novice) like restringing or needing new clasps. She also had a TON of clip on or screw on earrings. My ears are pierced but tried to wear them anyway, and it was PAINFUL! OUCH!

This led me to travel over to YouTube to start watching videos on stringing, restoration, and most especially, converting clip-on to pierced earrings. I had so much fun bringing new life to these pieces, I decided to start taking jewelry classes and well, long story short, here we are today!

I'm always looking for something different, and I love giving new life to forgotten things. Each piece is something a little different, the old made new.

I've also given each piece a little quote or poem to go with it, because I feel each piece has a story to tell, just like you and me.

Custom pieces are my absolutely favorite things to do. I would love for you to send me a convo and let's chat about something that you might like. I look forward to meeting you!❥❥
☛Thanks for dropping in!

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

Since I make all my jewelry pieces,I can customized an existing piece just for you in a different style or color, or I can create a brand new piece. Send me a message and we will design a piece specifically made for you.

Care instructions

I would suggest that you not get jewelry pieces wet. Some pieces have glue mounted cabochons that might come unmounted if repeatedly put in water.

Also, some pieces are made with a smaller wire making them less likely to stay together if caught on something. If this does happen, please let me know and I will do my best to fix the piece!

Sterling silver pieces may require a light polish every 6 months or so. You can use any polishing cloth. Here's a link to one I really like; good for gold, brass, and copper too!

Gift wrapping and packaging

Let me know if the item is a gift and I would be happy to include a personalized card.
All items do come gift boxed with a pretty bow. If you would like the item gift wrapped, I'm happy to do that for you for no extra cost, just send me a message and let me know the occasion.

Colors and styles

I try to represent my items as true to real as possible in photos and descriptions, but if you are unsure about an item's color or style, please contact me. Colors may appear a little different in person.

Since each item is handmade, pieces can often be recreated with different colors, but may not always be identical.

Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
I am always happy to help in any way I can!
