Featured Jewelry Designer, Diane Etcheverry

Diane is a good friend of mine who happens to be an amazing artist! I've decided to spotlight her on my blog today!

I met Diane many years ago and have always admired her work. In fact, some of the first homemade cards I bought were from Diane. I liked them so much that instead of giving them away, I adhered them to a  beautiful ribbon. Every Christmas they are still hung in my home as a decoration. She was already making jewelry back then and successfully selling it at home parties and other avenues.

Diane is a jewelry designer who loves beads and beautiful stones, and it shows in her gorgeous work! You've got to check out her blog at Beads in a Box to see her beautiful items.

Here are a few of her creations: This first one is made of Sodalite and Sterling Silver. I love the opaque quality of this piece...it's so classy looking.


This second one is a set of earrings made of Sterling Silver Swarovski Crystal. Amazing color!!


I really love this next set too. I don't know if it's the contrast of the red coral with the sterling silver, but I think it's just so darn cute!


That's all I'm going to show you here. Aside from her blog Diane also has an Etsy shop that she has just restarted after becoming more acquainted with her computer. It's a learning process, isn't it? Sigh! I just recently discovered that I could display featured items in my etsy shop...and I know I have to spend more time figuring etsy out. Enough said!

Anyway, please send her some love and encourage her in her computer ventures!

Thanks for visiting and have a good weekend!!
