D-R Designs Jewelry
My interest in vintage jewelry started many years ago when, as an antiques dealer, I was drawn to the beauty of rhinestone jewelry. Today I enjoy reinventing antique costume jewelry to create new styles suitable for current fashions and ready to become tomorrow's treasured heirlooms. I start with quality vintage jewelry pieces such as shoe buckles, pins, earrings, pendants, and anything with rhinestones, pearls or glass beads. Then I redesign these elements into unique jewelry suited for today's fashions. Giving new life to jewelry pieces that have been forgotten at the bottom of the jewelry box is an absolute pleasure!
My designs range from simply elegant pieces suitable for everyday wear, to dramatic creations for special occasions. The D-R Designs Jewelry collection includes necklaces, bracelets, earrings and matched sets. I have worked with many clients to design custom pieces from their family heirlooms. I have also worked with bridal parties to create special wedding ensembles. Each piece is created by hand and is unique. New designs are available each month at the First Friday weekend sales at Good Ju Ju in Kansas City, MO.
