Featured Studio: LorettasBoutique

This week our guild is featuring one of our newer Jewelry Design Studios, "LorettasBoutique" aka Loretta. This is a fabulous studio showcasing jewelry designs made with many handcrafted beads by Loretta. Loretta has always been interested in art and creating beautiful and fun pieces. She has many skills that she uses to create her beautiful designs. Loretta knits, sews, is a jewelry designer, and she also makes her very own amazing polymer clay pendants and beads. It is ten years now that Loretta has been designing and creating jewelry. Creating polymer clay pendants and beads is a more recent successful endeavor. Loretta finds that creating polymer pendants and beads, that really look like many semi-precious stones, is terribly exciting. Some of the faux semi precious stones that she has created with polymer clay are Ivory and Lapis Lazuli.

Featured Studio: TheGemmedGiraffe

This week the Ajdjss Guild is featuring one of our newest members, "The Gemmed Giraffe" aka Maria Jenny.
This jewelry design studio is filled with simple, elegant, and classic necklaces, earrings, and bracelets.
Maria Jenny loves using gemstone and semi-precious gemstones in her jewelry. The stones are accompanied by porcelain and crystals. The findings that are used are sterling silver, gold filled, and silver plated. Each piece is unique and of high quality craftmanship.
Maria Jenny began her journey in designing and creating her gemstone jewelry pieces when she was looking for a way to repair some of her favorite pieces of jewelry. She researched online ways to replace clasps and to restring beads. Then her mother sent her a couple of necklaces and pieces that she needed fixed. This was just the beginning, she began to research more and more, and found that working with jewelry became a passion.
The philosophy behind "The Gemmed Giraffe" is a coordinated look. Therefore, you will find coordinating necklaces, bracelets, and earrings showcased in this wonderful Ajdjss Guild jewelry design studio.
Here is a glimpse of some of the simple, elegant, and classic pieces found on sale in "TheGemmedGiraffe".
