Starting out as a hobby in 2006, DianesDangles LLC was established in
January, 2012. Making gemstone beaded jewelry satisfied my love of color
and design and was my avenue for unleashing the hidden artist in me
that I never knew existed. I quickly learned the skills for making
beaded jewelry and then went on to working with sterling silver my
favorite metal. My silversmithing skills were acquired over two years
of attending classes. With these newly acquired skills, I could now
design and make my own pendant and then add a beaded necklace.
Many of my jewelry
items are made with gemstone beads. There are also many sterling silver
gemstone pendants that I have designed and hand crafted. I have been
working on a new line of jewelry that consists of coin pendants and
bracelets where all of the bezel settings are handmade out of gold
filled or sterling silver. Many of these coins represent the places that
I have visited.
LLC status was obtained beginning in 2012 and I am very excited to have
my own business. My business goal is to continue to offer beaded
designed jewelry and expand on my sterling silver design pieces and coin
jewelry. Visit my studio: DianesDangles
