Featured Artist ~ Elektra Jewelry Design

Oftentimes, we find discovering our muse is a very special journey of its own…

Dina of Elektra Jewelry Design explains that while she has been passionate about jewelry all of her life, it was traveling to Greece for the first time at the age of 15 that influenced her love for 18k and 24k gold, with the warm, rich color enchancing the stones and settings of each beautiful design. She later discovered that silver was equally lovely, complimenting some of her favorite stones even better than gold.

Dina finally took the step from fine jewelry collector to designer and artist one cold morning on a ski vacation when a jewelry design workshop was offered. Like many artists, the seeds had obviously been planted, and fortunately for us, the results continue to be stunning.

Working primarily with gold vermeil, Bali sterling silver, semi-precious stones and vintage glass beads, Dina usually creates OOAK pieces that can be worn and enjoyed for years to come.
