bee pendant

This was a commissioned piece, and was created mainly in silver but with gold wings this was all hand fabricated so involved many hours at the workbench making all the separate parts of the bee, it was a fun piece to do , so  thank you to my client for the commission.

9ct white gold canal scene pendant- by Helen Burrell

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

silver bangle

silver bangle set with a moss agate stone

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 .

Bespoke stud

A Bespoke stud

This is a very kind testimonial from my client:- Adrian

‘My recent commission from Helen Burrell was prompted by a case of ‘Mid Life Crisis’ ( or rather ‘Mod’ life crisis!) I had, for some time, been trying to source a gents yellow gold , single stud earring depicting the iconic Red, White & Blue Mod Roundel using preferably, set stones. Having trawled the internet thoroughly I was unsuccessful – no surprise there as such a piece existed only in my mind’s eye as I had never actually seen such a piece. The decision was then made that the only way forward was to have one created for me – so back to the internet, where I arrived at Helens website. After reading her excellent reviews, I got in touch & I am so glad that I did. The finished piece was exactly what I had envisaged. The attention to detail & interpretation of my requirements was amazing & resulted in a 11mm gold stud using no less than 22 precious stones of exceptional quality to achieve the desired design which was subtle & tasteful – important when you are an aging Mod the wrong side of 50 & cannot get away with wearing anything too outlandish! However, in certain light, the fire & sparkle of the stones really are something – but I am sure I can get used to this! You could be forgiven for thinking that a bespoke piece of this quality would be prohibitively expensive but  I was surprised to find this was not the case. Helen is a lovely lady who clearly cares about what she does & how she does it to achieve that special piece for her clients. If you want to obtain the unobtainable in bespoke jewellery, give her a call – You will not be disappointed!’

Many thanks Adrian it was great working with you,- and I love that we got it exactly right for you , my CAD design company deserve most of the praise though .

To my future clients,- please feel free to call me if you have a special piece in mind and I am happy to find the best way to create your special piece too ..

transformations of reworked family gold

Here is another example of a transformation of reworked family gold.

– my client requested that I designed and created for them a special gift for a little girl , which would be given to her on her 18th birthday.

-they gave me some special family jewellery that had been gathered together for the purpose , some lovely rings that had very nice colourful stones in them ,  a ruby, diamonds sapphires and an emerald.

Between us we came up with the idea of a pendant in the form of a dragonfly , this was made by various methods such as casting up the ring shanks for the body of the dragonfly, and piercing out the wings from the wide wedding ring I was given .

The body of the dragonfly had the colourful stones set into it and the diamonds were flush set into the wings.

transformation of the reworked family gold -to creating the special piece …

Here are the photos of the rings and the design and the finished piece.

rose gold ring  with beautiful faceted topaz

I have always loved strong colours and this is an example of how lovely combining the colours of stones with different golds can be to create a stunning effect …

 

 

 

There are many wonderfully coloured stones which can be made up like this to great effect.

Exceptional dress rings can be created for you using a variety of stones, such as:-  peridot, amethyst aquamarine, opal, tanzanites, and  tourmalines, (which come in all ranges of colour) and of course all the precious stones too, such as this orange sapphire.

This ring  is still in stock and is for sale at £750.00 in 9ct rose gold .

(please feel free to enquire.01509 239348)

examples of tanzanite , one of my favourite stones

I have recently set a fire opal  into the ring you see below , which had the glow of a winter fire in its colour, and needed little fuss in the setting to show it off to it’s best effect.

If you have a favourite colour of stone- I can get you some examples for you to choose from for your special ring, or pendant – just give me a call on  01509 239348
