Happy Tuesday everyone! Today’s Art Jewelry reveal is the coming together of many things that have been lingering inside of me for a while.

Happy Tuesday everyone! After having been working for a little over a month on our floral jewelry (which you can see here if you missed it!), I was ready to make something completely different.

Two beautiful jewelry pieces for two beautiful women.

Happy Tuesday everyone!   A few weeks ago something unfortunate happened: I lost my US Identification Card. Normally, this would be just an annoyance. But¬†under the¬†new US administration, traveling with a green-card (which is all I have since I’m not a US citizen), automatically implies more scrutiny and more questions when traveling within or outside […]

Elaine’s Philly

Today’s post marks an official shift…or better said, a long overdue expansion in my¬†world.   Even though VeruDesigns was born as an art-jewelry business, it’s become clear over time that art itself¬†(beyond jewelry), is really where my creativity is wanting to grow. This doesn’t mean that jewelry ceases to be, but it¬†will share the spotlight […]

Big and Beautiful: Colossal Beads are back!

If you’re one of our early supporters, then you may know that before VeruDesigns, there was “VeeBeads”. That’s right, my little handmade couture jewelry world began with beads.

The Process: Creating a custom order

Today I’m going to cover a question that¬†I get asked¬†quite frequently:¬†What is my actual “process”¬†for¬†creating a custom¬†jewelry piece. To answer, I’ll get pretty specific by using a recent example. 1.How long does it take: Between 5 to 10 business days. ¬†The necklace used for this post took exactly 10 days from beginning to end.   […]
