Designer jewellery puts a sparkle in Vickie's eyes

VICKIE Spencer loves the feeling of being unique, especially when she's donning some of her favourite jewellery.

Her collection is one to be marvelled, featuring several pieces by designer jeweller Miranda Manifold.

Ms Spencer has four rings, a pendant, a pair of earrings and a remodelled necklace by Miranda.

Her daughter has several pendants, a set of earrings and a bracelet.

Working with a designer jeweller allowed Ms Spencer to turn something that didn't enjoy wearing, to a completely different piece.

"I was divorced, and I had my ex-husbands wedding ring, my engagement, wedding and maternity ring … instead of looking at it, thinking, there's that wedding ring, I had it melted down to a pendent.

"It's changed to something that I didn't want to wear to something that is like an heirloom," she said.

The pendant is designed with two rocks that are Ms Spencer's and her daughter's favourite colours.

"I have always liked jewellery, but I didn't know that everyday people could own unique jewellery like this."

"It never occurred to me to get something remodelled, until I saw Miranda's work."

Ms Spencer will be going to the Sapphire Gemstone Seminar by Miranda Manifold this Saturday from 1 - 4pm at the Gecko Valley Winery.

RSVP to Gecko Valley Winery on 4979 0400.

Appointments are also available for designing and remodelling.
