Basket of Love

Reversable 14kt Yellow and White Gold Pendant with Diamonds and Smokey Quartz

A beautiful pendant commissioned by a husband for his wife's birthday. I received the following letter from her:


Dear Ilze

The necklace is AMAZING! Wow! I was so surprised. Had no idea John had commissioned this piece. It really is a work of art. If I had a choice of pieces - I would have chosen it - it is so my style and so me. Thank you for all the special effort you put in to making something so special for me.

With much love and gratitude

In the Mountains

14kt Yellow Gold, Sterling Silver and Diamonds

This ring was one of my favorite pieces to make. It is not often that you get true carte blanche to design a jewelry piece. Ellen gave me a handful of old jewelry, including her mother and grandmother's rings. She told me she loves the mountains of North Carolina and asked if I can find a way of putting some in there?


When I delivered the ring to her, the only words that she kept saying was: "Oh, It is BEAUTIFUL! It is Beautiful."


Winter Tree

14kt Yellow Gold, Hand Pierced Tree Pendant

What an honor to create a piece of jewelry for another jeweller? I made this piece for a very dear friend's wife. I was told she wears it often and get compliments all the time. Exactly what I like to hear.

Stylish Everyday Pearl Bracelet

Oxidized Sterling Silver, Fresh Water Pearls and Swarovski Crystals

I was asked to make a stylish and elegant braclet for everyday wear. Keep in mind, Karen is a busy mom of 4, with a very eclectic style. She wanted the bracelet to reflect her personality.
