A New necklace commission-Ruby wedding gift


A ruby wedding gift rubyThis was a very special commission where I worked with my client to create a unique necklace for her with matching earrings for her ruby wedding, a gift from her husband.

The design expressed ideas based on her own paintings and her love of nature combined .

My thanks for their confidence in me, it was a lovely piece to make, diamonds were also set in the piece for accents of light and detail.

If you, like me, aspire to have something different when you want to celebrate an occasion both in choosing clothes and jewellery for it,- then commissioning  a statement piece may be just what you need to make it special and lasting.

My creations are timeless in design and are also investments being  wrought from  precious metals and set with precious stones.

All of my necklaces are different and designed especially for you ,

please feel free to enquire ,   you can call me on :- 01509 239348

I look forward to hearing from you soon

Life story necklace © another ‘helen burrell’ original design

My clients Life Story necklace
As a follow on form my previous post my client has very kindly sent me this testimonial :-
‘I first met Helen and saw her beautiful jewellery on a visit to her shop at Melbourne.
I loved the idea of using some of the jewellery my Mum had left me which had sentimental value but was not to my own taste.
I decided to have a special necklace made and wanted it to be a symbolic representation of happy memories, family friends and even pets!
After discussing my own thoughts with my husband and grandson Joseph, I met with Helen to discuss how my ideas could be incorporated into a necklace.
Helen then produced a beautiful design, which was perfect.
I must admit I was nervous when the day arrived to collect it, but my nerves were needless.
My necklace is absolutely stunning, I was overwhelmed! it was gorgeous, it reminds me of my Mum and Dad and all things precious to me, and of course it is unique.
I know for sure my Mum would have loved it,
I’ve had a lovely , happy and positive experience thanks to Helen’s incredible talent, patience and her eye for detail.

I loved making it for you, and am thrilled that you love it too, thank you very much for the commission.

Sea Breeze Necklace ©

Sea Breeze Necklace
designed and handmade by Helen Burrell©
This Necklace was commissioned as a memorial piece, -and is an original,

After consultation with my client we agreed I would present the wedding ring and engagement ring in a new way, so I designed this piece by reworking the rings into detailed features within the design.
The idea for the necklace was based on the form of blown waves in a high breeze, small beads catch the light, like sea spray, to give it extra sparkle,
a theme such as this, can inspire beautiful designs.
