Handmade Jewelry by Vicki
My name is Vicki and for over twenty five years I have been a jewelry artist and maker, professionally trained with multiple certifications from the Gemological Institute of America (GIA).
In my jewelry you will only find gemstones and precious metals. There is no crystal, glass, clay, or imitations. Common gemstones that I might use could be turquoise or hematite or tiger-eye, while uncommon stones might be chalcedony, mookite, rhodochrosite, or prehnite. Organic gemstones (pearls, coral, and amber) are throughout my work as are all four precious stones - diamonds, rubies, emeralds, and sapphires. Typically I do my work in sterling silver though I occasionally work with gold and platinum. I make pendants, earrings, bracelets, necklaces, and ankle bracelets. Because of my range of work, my range of prices vary greatly. In 2017 I was asked a number of times, in applications, about my prices. Using my current and historical prices, necklaces range from $24 to $231, bracelets $6 to $182, ankle bracelets $14 to $81, and pendants $8 to $46. This only counts work that incorporates silver, so no gold or platinum was used in these calculations.
Much of my work is custom work done in collaboration with the customer, thus bridal and prom jewelry are ealso fortes of mine.
