Jewelry with meaning

by lore ferreira |

Inspired by you.

Jewelry as unique as you are.

A one-of-a-kind design experience helps you make a personal statement.  Together we will  figure out the details, weigh all the options, and I will guide you through each step of creating a piece of custom jewelry,  and we'll tweak the details until you say it's perfect.  
See sketches and concept art designed just for you, discuss design ideas, options, budget, and choose materials and gemstones.

We can either start with a blank canvas or you can gather inspiration from the pieces in my collections.

The photos in this post are from custom design work for four pendants.  Each pendant was for a special member of the family.  Aunt, cousin, daughter, and Steph, who commissioned this work.  

 this is the original sketch Steph sent me...an idea...a vision.  From here we communicated for a couple of weeks before coming up with the final design.

this is very similar to the final design we ended up using.  The exact design is of course personal.

here a model of one of the earlier designs we did not end up using.  We worked through five different designs before choosing.

this is a mock up of one of the final designs with different stones to get a sense of size and color.

Choosing gemstones.. So many colors! Which one should you wear! Of course, you might want to wear your birthstone. You might even choose one of your totem stones or select something according to its healing properties.   Gathered from all corners of the Earth, gemstones are born of nature and evolve naturally into beautiful pieces of art. Gemstones are found in different hues, tones and saturations. Throughout history, a primary use of gemstones has been for healing and spiritual rituals, and today many people continue to believe in the inherent power of gemstones. More than just an adornment,  many believe that gems have metaphysical properties that can assist in balancing moods, developing intuitive awareness or protection from negative energy.  In my previous blog post, Lets talk Gemstones there are more interesting facts.

In this case we chose gemstones specifically for each one of the special women who would wear them.

work in progress... all four pendants with their focal stones before being set.  

This pendant was designed for a young lady who loves to swim, an exceptional athlete about to graduate from High School.

 

This pendant has a Moonstone Focal gem... As the name suggests, Moonstone is strongly connected to moon and to intuition as well. It is also first and foremost a women’s stone, directly associated with the Mother Goddess... perfect fro Steph.

You dream it. I will create it.

Together we can design and make your jewelry from start to finish. Let me craft a one of a kind piece that reflects your unique story, personality and style.
