new computer aided design rings
the benefits of computer aided design are that exact details can be requested and then seen as an image before the piece is made, this gives my clients confidence that the piece described and designed for them will be as they visualized it.
my recent commissions have been about working with my clients and my CAD team to to create some beautiful rings , some of which are illustrated below :-
many thanks to my clients for this lovely commission….
their testimonial was much appreciated:-
‘Helen provided my wife and I with an excellent professional service, which was an honest and enjoyable experience from our first contact to the finished bespoke rings she created for my wife.
Helen took time to fully understand my wife’s requirements and came up with two fantastic designs that met the brief perfectly and were subsequently commissioned.
Without hesitation, we would go straight to Helen for any future pieces and have no reservation in recommending her brilliant results. ‘
‘Thank you both so much , it was lovely to meet you and work with you both to achieve your special designs , and it’s really good to have met your expectations too.
Thanks again for trusting me with your commissions , I really appreciate it .’
another example is illustrated below :-
many different designs, and any stones can be set in rings such as this,-
each one being unique .
many thanks to my client for this lovely commission too
9ct white gold canal scene pendant-designed and created by Helen Burrell
This was a lovely commission to do which reflected my clients’ pastimes, as they owned a Canal barge.
It was commissioned for a Ruby Wedding Anniversary gift , and I created the scene in 9ct white gold to show the water passing under a canal bridge, with a fence and bulrushes in the foreground, and it was set with two diamonds to represent the sparkle on the water.
The pendant has a feature Ruby set in the top of the piece.
Other scenes can be made to reflect your special places too, just give me a call to discuss your ideas , 01509 239348
This silver bangle was designed and created for one of my clients to use up some of her family pieces . Special stones like the moss agate were set as a feature in this new silver bangle.
The stone was retained in its original setting from a ring she had previously…and was secured in a four claw silver mount. Small diamonds were used from another piece she had, and were flush set into the silver leaves, as symbols of water droplets on the leaves , tendrils of silver wire decorate the frame to suggest growing plants .
Other designs of bracelets and bangles can be created using your old family jewellery ,-please feel free to contact me with your ideas and we can work together to make something special.
my thanks to my client for this commission.
CAD bespoke ring
I can now offer a ‘Computer aided design’ bespoke service , this can be very useful if you have family jewellery that is in an old mount that is worn or doesn’t suit your style, or if you have purchased a special stone while on holiday , the design below illustrates the CAD drawing that was created to show how my clients family stones would be set, and the finished ring is pictured next to it , this was her very kind testimonial
We approached Helen with diamonds I had inherited over time from very close family, we wanted the most perfect and unique engagement ring , I gave her my ideas and she then found the best people for the job. Her service is personal from beginning to end, she’s honest and let’s you know exactly what she can do and where she involves others. We picked up the ring 2 days ago and I swear I saw a tear in her eye as she gave it us, the ring is stunningly beautiful and has so many personal memories embedded into it.
I have left her with my final diamond now to design and create my wedding necklace , I know I won’t be disappointed !
We cannot rate her highly enough , whatever you want she will go the extra mile for you , I don’t believe it’s just a business to Her, it’s her Passion.’
Thank you Helen .
My thanks to my lovely client , I am happy that you are so happy !

bespoke necklaces created to order
One of my main areas of work is to create ‘one off’ bespoke special pieces in the form of necklaces or bracelets, and even rings have been made, which have significance in terms of the themes they represent.
I have recently finished one, based on ‘a walk in derbyshire’ which had great significance for my client….
These pieces can be either relating to memories my clients may have, such as a holiday they remember or a special place or person perhaps…
I work with them to create a unique piece of jewellery which will serve to be worn in their lifetime, but can then be passed on as an heirloom later .
The one shown here is one of my own ‘Four seasons’ necklaces…
this one is based on ‘Winter’ as the theme. I can include my clients’ own valuable and sentimental items of family jewellery if if they choose to do so, as often these pieces are of great importance but are just left in a draw even though they mean so much to my clients, this way they can be revived into something to be worn again and appreciated.
If you would like to discuss your special piece please feel free to call me on 01509 239348
A commissioned piece , created with new gold and my clients’ diamonds, reset into one of my new designs.
A Recent commission for a lady who loves Horses.
This piece was based on a dressage horse, and the shapes of the links are indicative of the horses movements in the arena.
Created in silver, this is a one off original, but I can design pieces to reflect themes you enjoy too. please feel free to enquire.
I go to St Ives at least once a year on holiday and get inspired . New pieces are added to my ranges as time passes, this one was a commission, but can be recreated in different precious metals and with your choice of stones , each piece is then still an original design.
three beads ring This one is to go into my ‘Garden’ range on my new website which you can see at:-
www.creative-jewellery.com and has the feel of nature about it, which is reflecting walks I have had in Cornwall and the Lake district too.
I have recently launched a sister website that showcases new ranges of jewellery I am developing, these are mainly based on themes such as The Sea, The Garden and Abstract designs.
They can be made in your choice of precious metal, with the stones you prefer set into them , if you would like to see them please visit the website.:-
CAD design available, I now have links with very good CAD contacts,who use ‘computer aided design’ who can create intricate and multi stone set jewellery designs. An example of CAD is the ring you see on the left, this is created in 18ct yellow gold, and is set by hand, by my wonderful setter Craig, with an unusual array of orange sapphires and beautiful diamonds.The stones were personally sourced by my stone dealer Simon, and chosen for the best colour match for my client, resulting in this beautiful ring.
My thanks to my client for the lovely commission.
