It's been five days so I'm open for business....

Unfortunately because my regular photographer couldn't make it in last week to take the pictures I have been running behind a bit at getting them all out.  However I'm running all the final pieces today.  Again the pieces will not be put out in the case for two weeks.  If any of my blog readers want first chance at them, now is the time to call or come in.  Tomorrow or Friday I hope to be getting back to a normal blog and writing about something that is irritating me these days. 

I needed to get three shots of this boulder opal and diamond ring to show you what's going on in it.  If you've always wanted an opal ring this is a great one because there is lots of protection for the stone!

A new watermelon tourmaline bracelet. 

As you will see from my last two pieces I got a lot of beautiful drusy this year, most of it orange.  The pair on top also has natural color orange sapphires. 

So this all she wrote folks.  Although I'm finishing up a pair of disc earrings that I usually do with tourmalines with a pair of beautiful orange garnets.  I really am into orange this year.................

Here they come!

I told you I would start posting the new pieces soon.  Unfortunately my photographer couldn't make it in today so I'm going to be using my own pictures for the moment.  Not quite as professional but not too bad.  Here are the rules:  I'm going to be posting two to three pictures per day.  I should have all the pictures up by Wednesday.  From Wednesday on any of you can come by to see and pick from the pieces or call me about them if you want one.  They won't actually go into the cases for the general public for two weeks after that (you have exclusivity until October 12).  Then anyone can get them.

What the heck are you doing?

Pricing out the new jewels!
So I know I've been sending out some teasers here but let me explain what I'm doing this year. Back in July I closed the store for a four day period so I could spend almost a week just making up new stock for the cases.  It was a great week for me as it's one of the things I love to do the most.  I mostly finished, got started on, or fleshed out a large (for me) grouping of pieces.  Almost all the stones I used I purchased in the month prior specifically for the grouping.  Usually I put out new designs as I finish them but I wanted to do it a little differently this year because to me, at any rate, they felt like a group.

I wanted to produce some work that followed many of my usual themes but also I had some fun playing with how asymmetry and balance impact appearance.  Every piece I made is a one of a kind, completely hand made piece (no castings).  Basically this is going to be my entire production of new designs for the rest of the year (I will be producing many of my regular designs on an ongoing basis however so don't worry, I'll still have plenty of stuff to buy).  I have never put out this many new designs at once. 

So what does this mean for you, all my faithful blog readers?  I am having pictures of them taken on Saturday September 24 and I am hoping to begin posting pictures of them here on the blog beginning on the 25th, probably at the rate of 3 per day (this should take 5 days).  From the day the last pieces are shown on the blog, my blog readers will have the exclusive opportunity to purchase the pieces for a 2 week period (phone orders are fine too) before I put them out in the cases for the general public. 

If you're thinking of something for the holidays this will be your best chance to get something new from me for awhile.  If you haven't treated yourself in awhile, well it's a good time to get something new just for you.  So keep your eyes on the blog in the next few weeks!

And PS if you aren't following me on Instagram yet you should start as most new pictures of pieces I make (both custom and stock) are showing up on there first these days.  I'm under daniel_spirer_jewelers.

Fall Collection

You're looking at the new fall collection.  Can't see it?  You're right you can't.  Yet.  But stay tuned and keep reading the blog.  In about 10 days you'll get a chance to really see it. And an offer only for my blog readers.  I'm really excited about this.  I've never put this many pieces together at once to go out at one time.
