Designer Cabochons, Wire Wrapped Pendants, Greek Coin Pendants, Fine Jewelry

ABOUT US: For 18 years my wife and I have been making wire wrapped jewelry, designer cabochons, and ancient Greek and Roman coin jewelry for sale at close to wholesale prices.  We started making our items to sell in Northern California Gem and Mineral Shows. We later expanded to a shop on Etsy.com and then created a second shop on the Internet, Designsbyshirl.com. This was our main website and our Etsy shop is where you can purchase our items, any picture on our homepage or the ones below will link to our Etsy shop, just click on it. Our Etsy address: https://www.etsy.com/shop/DesignsbyShirl

We live in Windsor, Calif. and work out of our home. Retiring some years back we needed a hobby and this is how it evolved, almost a full time job.

We use many different types of material in making a designer cabochon including many that are rare, scarce or unique. Most of the rough material we use is considered semi precious stones. Our Unique Handmade Jewelry is made using Sterling Silver, 14k gold, 14k gold fill and Argentium silver wire. Shirl accents her designer wire wrapped jewelry with only natural stones, glass or crystal beads and sometimes small metal accents. She now wire wraps iridescent ancient Roman glass shards that were found in Israel, they are truly one of a kind. I recently started cleaning ancient Roman and Greek coins to make pendants and money clips, they are now for sale at close to wholesale prices.

We really love what we’re doing but the biggest enjoyment is getting and reading our reviews, from over 933 satisfied online customers. The below picture is a sample of our work. Because we put so much into the buying and selecting of our material we like to think that all our cabochons and wire wrap jewelry are using the best semi precious stones available. I think our reviews can be a testament to this. You can read these reviews using the below link, which will open in a new window.
