bellajewelsII's Shop Announcement

Welcome to bella jewels. I am so glad you are here!

3/18: Recently I have been listing some 'made to order' pieces which you can find by selecting 'made to order' in the list to the left of page. I will continue to have mostly ready made pieces..and just a fraction that are 'made to order'.

A wonderment of authentic jewels made especially for the daringly discerning! Expressive jewelry with beguiling elements to tantalize and titillate and have your heart racing! Not meant to be fleeting trends...but rather to bespeak the beauty....spirit and individual style of the wearer.

Handcrafted from top to bottom....from ear hooks to all the frames on which I place gemstones. The only pre-made elements used are leverbacks, chain, and lobster clasps. The rest is hand forged and fabricated by me. I use argentium sterling silver, 14k gold fill and karat gold (custom ordered). I am also fairly knowledgeable about gemstones and will not mislead you. I take responsibility for all of my work and descriptions. For example, if I purchase amethyst briolettes and I think they are quartz, I will list them as quartz.

NOTE TO CUSTOMERS

Quality, workmanship, creativity and detail are at the core of my work. My designs are uniquely my own created using my life experiences, my thoughts, my style, and my creativity. I do not copy other peoples work, nor is it ethical to do so. Though this seems to be a common practice on the internet.

I don't often describe how fabulous my stones are, in my listings, because I hope the pictures tell you themselves. I receive multiple emails everyday inquiring after my gemstone sources. AND I am sure this is the reason I have such a lovely little group of repeat customers. My workmanship is pretty spectacular too, but it should be after 30 years of fine tuning and I continue to fine tune.! It is all in the details which is rare these days!! Ha!

I have been metal smithing, wire-wrapping and designing professionally full time since 1986. On ebay since 1998. My designs are my own. I have been creating the work you see here in my etsy shop long before tutorials..long before anyone else was copying my designs. My work has been juried into the ACC and the Rosen shows since 1989, although I don't do shows at all anymore.

My other shop, belladornments, is open. Filling up with my jewelry designs made prior to 2007. Some as early as the late 80's. I have one filing sized drawer filled with jewelry that was listed once never to be listed again, never listed here at all, saved, hoarded or adored and forgotten. New and pristine, just stored. Timeless jewelry that is still trendsetting.***
