Earrings!


Here are a couple of shots of woven silver earrings with faceted brios - aqua chalcedony on the left and rutilated quartz on the right.   I'm doing this design in a variety of gemstones.   Check out my website store at www.dianakirkpatrick.com/shophome.htm and click on "Earrings."

Glorious Day

It's a glorious day.   I'm working on some new ideas for woven earrings.   I'll have photos coming soon, I hope, but in the meantime take a look at the new designs I've already posted in the earrings section and in bridal jewelry.

Art Hop - a Big Success


I want to thank everyone who worked to help make last night's Art Hop a big success. Thanks also to everyone who turned out to enjoy the shopping and the live music at all the participating stores. Our next Art Hop will be November 20.

I'm doing a bridal show at the Gainesville Hilton tomorrow. See you there!

Tiaras on Sale



Some of my handcrafted artisan style tiaras are on sale this month. If you are looking for bridal jewelry - either for the bride or for her attendants and family - check out my bridal section And be sure to take a look at the new earring styles there and elsewhere on my website. My freshwater pearl earrings can be custom-made in a lot of different colors and combinations. Pearls look great paired with deeper hues as well as with white and pastels… and pearls are a great value. There’s quite a choice in affordable gemstones to choose from, too. If you’re interested in vintage jewelry pieces, take a look at my Etsy store.

Some of my handcrafted tiaras are on sale this month. If you are looking for bridal jewelry - either for the bride or for her attendants and family - check out the bridal section of my site. I'm doing the Florida Bridal Expo here in Gainesville on September 13 at the Hilton.

One of my new earring styles is pictured here and you can also check out all the earrings.

My assortment of pearl earrings will look great paired with pearly greys and raspberry tones as well as with the earth tones and mineral shades in the fashion forecast for Fall. I’m creating new earrings and necklaces in lapis, carnelian, aqua chalcedony, and citrine - great for contrasting with midnight blue, gray shades, or black! I’m pairing aqua chalcedony with silver and also with peridot for the earth tones.
