antoinette (one of a kind)
LILA EARRINGS (LIMITED EDITION)
This earring style was originally designed for a client as a 70th birthday present for her mother. We worked closely together to come up with something that would be just her style, but also delightful to wear and easy to put on and remove. The Omega style backs are extremely comfortable (and protective). I loved them so much that I decided to make them a part of my limited edition line without gemstones, or with a selection of diamonds or sapphires. Available for special order in rose gold.
KILIMAJARO EARRINGS (ONE-OF-A-KIND)
These earring feature 17.59 ctw. in Tanzanite cabochon briolettes and .06 ctw. in diamonds, set into 18K royal yellow gold. It took me two years to create a design that was befitting of these gorgeous gemstones. The shape reminds me of a mountaintop, and the diamonds of stars in the sky. As Tanzanites only come from one place in the world, the moniker, “Kilimanjaro” seems a perfect fit.
These 18K royal yellow gold earrings look amazing on the ear. The shape is very architectural and sleek, but the texture adds a lovely warmth to the metal. I especially love that they look like a hoop from the front! Available for special order in 18K rose gold and 18K white gold with rhodium plating.
On the heels of creating Antoinette, I believed that the triple-bezel diamond top was good enough to stand on its own. I created the 22K gold and diamond Triad studs for those that want a small earring with a big look.
These earrings were designed for my client who had a mix of yellow and white metal jewelry in her collection. We used diamonds of different sizes that she had inherited, and surrounded them in yellow gold bezels dangling from white gold chain. The result is lovely and light, and works equally well for day and evening.
My client’s husband gifted her a beautiful pair of rainbow moonstone cabochons and a custom design with me. She loved a pair of earrings I often wore and we used that as the inspiration for these beauties. The moonstones are actually quite light and lively, but we couldn’t capture their true nature in the photograph. Only the owner knows for sure how lovely these gemstones are.

This platinum and diamond stunner was a surprise engagement ring from my client to his girlfriend (now wife). For all the details, click on "Learn More" to check out their love story on my blog.
This wedding band is the result of a wonderful collaboration between myself and my client. She wanted a nature-themed ring that wasn’t too blingy and had interesting texture and relief. The leaves and swirls were hand-carved into the wax before casting, and the final result was a big success.
(a.k.a. "My Precious.") This client had designed a gorgeous diamond ring for his wife with me and then decided he wanted some bling for himself! He had a diamond from a dated pinky ring that was not being worn, and I designed this sleek platinum piece to satisfy his desire for both good looks and comfort. When he doesn’t want the flash of the diamond, he just turns it upside down and it’s his little secret.
This client wanted to make use of the many small diamonds she had acquired in rings over the years. She wanted a bold, statement ring that would complement her statuesque beauty, and this piece was a big hit!
This platinum and diamond ring was designed for a woman who wanted something that looked delicate, but was not fragile. She wanted clean lines, interesting prongs, and a low-set diamond for her active lifestyle. Mission accomplished!
DAGGER NECKLACE (LIMITED EDITION)
This sleek and sexy shape looks and feels great on the skin, and the lines go equally well with a plunging neckline or a high-necked top. The subtle 18K rose gold of DAGGER is flattering on a wide range of skin tones and compliments other pieces in white or yellow metals. Available for special order in platinum, 18K yellow gold, and 18K white gold with rhodium plating.
This client had a large opal she wanted re-set into something more glamorous. I surrounded it with diamonds and 18K royal yellow gold and it went from “nice” to “knock-out.”
This oxidized sterling and diamond necklace was created from my client’s re-purposed round and marquis-shaped diamonds. She wanted something that was playful and could be worn in both a casual and formal setting, and this piece was right on target.
