Start Your New Year off right with Jewelry!

Happy New Year Friends!!

I'm starting off my blog posts with a feature on my good friend, Diana. She opened up her etsy store in 2010.

Let me give you some background on our friendship. We met in a papermaking class at Penland, NC many years ago. Diana lives in California and I now live in NC. We were instant friends and remained in contact through Christmas cards.

Diana opened her business "Treasures" in 1992 which featured her embellishments on handmade paper books. She has sold online for 10 years. She ventured into the Etsy world in 2010.

"My customers know me best for my pearl necklaces", Diana says, "however, for the last couple of years my metalsmithing has become more prominent." She loves exploring textures, copper and patinaes. You will find that her work is more individual, one-of-a-kind pieces. Four years ago, her best decision was moving her studio to an active neighborhood business oriented street.

So I wanted to feature her store treasuresbydiana . At first look, you will see the gorgeous pearl necklace and earring sets and then the metal shaped earrings. She is placing more items in her store frequently, so come back and visit often!

Visit her store and choose your favorite item. Post a link here. Let's give her store lots of love.


  1. The starry night earrings are gorgeous! One of my closest friends just joined etsy too. Very exciting!

  2. I love Diana's jewelry. True craftsmanship and beauty. Very original. I just received a silver pearl necklace with a metal drop that was commissioned by my best friend for my 60th birthday. It is stunning. It is wonderful to wear one of a kind custom art from a true artisan!!

  3. Absolutely gorgeous! I have a new favorite!


  4. I absolutely love these colors:

    Great shop!
