Welcome to VDIJewelryFindings...a shop specializing in handmade, artisan, sterling silver and bronze jewelry findings and supplies.

I am the designer and owner of VEDELI DESIGNS....a jewelry design company specializing in handmade, artisan jewelry. Please visit my jewelry shop on Etsy at the following address.

https://www.etsy.com/shop/VedeliDesigns

I have opened this shop, VDIJewelryFindings, to share with you, the buyer, some of the components used in my jewelry designs.

When creating my findings, I initially carve each piece by hand out of wax. Then using the lost wax technique, I have a local caster mold, cast, oxidize and tumble my pieces. I have been working with my wonderful caster for over 15 years now and he is an irreplaceable part of my business.

A nice benefit to my shop, is that when it comes to my signature pieces, I have used almost all of the findings in finished pieces of jewelry. If needed, I can give you insight as to why a piece works well, how to perhaps use it, and examples of how I incorporated the finding into my finished jewelry.

My findings shop is an "all-in-the-family" kind of operation. I carry 3 designers jewelry findings in my shop.....my own, my mother-in-law's (Pam Springall) and my husband's (Shreve Saville). We all have totally different styles and looks when it comes to jewelry components and I believe the combination makes for a very eclectic collection.

I hope you enjoy VDIJewelryFindings and can use these findings to create your own expressions of art (and have fun doing so!).

I am so grateful for the Etsy community's support and collaboration!

Please continue to check in with my shop, as I am always creating new jewelry components to incorporate into my collections.

Best wishes,

About

I have had a constant evolving, exciting and many times, unpredictable journey in the jewelry and jewelry findings business!

My career out of college was in the financial world. After about 4 1/2 years of that and one wonderful trip to Bali, I realized I was in the wrong business. At that point, I started my jewelry business, Vedeli Designs, importing gorgeous handmade, sterling silver chain from Bali. It was also at this time that I started working with waxes. This is really where my jewelry findings journey began.

As time evolved, I stopped importing chain from Bali and starting making my own jewelry, from my wax carvings, here in New Mexico. Overtime, I saw a wonderful surge in the craft business and in particular, the jewelry making business. This inspired me to start my jewelry findings shop here on Etsy, VDIJewelryFindings....and I haven't looked back since!

I LOVE working with fellow designers and being a part of the creative process in making jewelry....whether it be my own creations or supplying findings for someone else. I love seeing how artists use my findings. Often it is so different than how I use them or envisioned them being used. The artistry of the customers on Etsy is phenomenal and it inspires me daily.

MY PROCESS:
I begin my process by carving a finding (link, clasp, charm, etc.) out of wax. Sometimes I use hard wax to make my pieces. Other times, I use soft wax...it depends on what I am making and how I need to create it. From there, I have the wax molded and cast with my local caster. We then tumble and oxidize the findings to get a wonderful finish on each individual piece.

I began my jewelry career in 1998, and it has continued to evolve and inspire me over the years. My favorite aspect of what I do, is that I can take an idea in my head and transform it into a beautiful piece of jewelry! And in the process, bring a little joy into someone's life! Thank you for visiting my site!
