diamond from her original engagement ring combined with her circle pendant, designed to move freely. two becomes one to wear frequently (jewelry alteration)
what the shop has been doing is converting ring tops into pendants with chains. since she is not wearing rings these days, we repurposed an old cluster ring into a necklace.
she was the recipient of the family kitschy jewelry. the oversized gold charms with rubies, sapphires, emeralds and pearls big enough to wear each as a pendant. they don’t make charms like this anymore – intricate and handmade with moving parts.
necklace redesigned to bracelet and slide-style pendant. repurposed old jewelry into something she loves.
What they say …
Raimie, you are THE best! Your caring ways, your creativity and your ability to really LISTEN are rare and wonderful traits! I deeply appreciate how you have helped me with my heirloom jewelry. I look forward to working with you on more precious items, bringing them to today’s luster and updating older items.
I was browsing the net on a Sunday evening and decided to take a peek at your site, which I haven’t visited since I have been visiting you so regularly. Much to my surprise and delight I found 2 of the pieces you created for me: the cabochon London blue topaz earrings and the terrific “double up” you did with my 2 pairs of earrings made of green-unfortunately-named stones.

Thank you so much for the beautiful emerald necklace you designed for our 50th wedding anniversary. It is a remarkable fine display of workmanship. I appreciated the energy you put into your design. Kilby was on “cloud nine” on the ride home. It was nice visiting with you again.

I just got the heart pins and they are lovely I absolutely love them!! I really appreciate the service and again thank you so much and I look forward to working with you again!

I find myself smiling and putting my hand to my necklace each time someone makes a comment. You truly captured the essence of its meaning by giving life to my mom’s diamond, and for that I thank you.

My husband really liked his Christmas present! I want to thank you again for your excellent work.
I was so upset when I lost my coin ring last year and am now thrilled to have it back. Kent saw the Greek coin ring today & loved it! He was so generous. He appreciates the process of working with you to always design something special.
I was searching for a jeweler to repurpose a string of pearls (my mom’s) for my granddaughter’s wedding. I consider it serendipity finding Raimie. Besides being a gifted jeweler, she made us feel welcome and like we were her only customers. Raimie provided excellent customer service under a deadline. We greatly appreciate her expertise and guidance. Thank you Raimie for helping to make a special wedding memory.
