About Designs by Diane



DesignsbyDiane is located on the beautiful island of Maui and is owned and operated by the designer herself.  

 

Diane, a former teacher from Palo Alto, CA., started out making sea glass jewelry from sea glass she had collected on the beaches of Maui. All sea glass used in her designs is as it came out of the ocean.  The pieces are not altered. Her simple, clean wire work lends a contemporary feel to her jewelry.  The mixture of pearls, shells, sterling components and gemstones adds texture to the designs.

 

Be sure to check out the “Pure Handmade Silver” collection.  Diane makes beautiful components from precious metal silver clay. The pieces are made in clay form, then are fired in a kiln, resulting in pure silver pieces. The most popular piece, the Maui necklace, is made in this way and then hammered.

 

Many pieces are one of a kind, due to the nature of the materials, but similar pieces can be made. Please feel free to contact Diane if you’d like to design a special piece. She loves to design custom pieces with her clients! Her complete portfolio is located at:
