Samara’s exclusive designs are inspired by an original stone or a unique design idea, which has an element so special it is considered “one-of-a-kind.” Samara loves to travel to shows and around the world seeking one of a kind gemstones which will inspire a beautiful new piece of jewelry. Boulder opals, drusy and pearls are some of her favorites. She looks for new shapes, superior faceting styles, exceptional colors, and internationally-known, artisan-carved gemstones to inspire fantastic new designs. The unusual aspect of each stone triggers the thought process of how best to show off each stone’s extraordinary features. The unusual shape or color of many of these distinctive gems cannot be duplicated; therefore, these jewelry creations are one-of-a-kind, an exclusivity many of our clients covet.
Samara also adapts her original designs to be reproduced in limited quantities. Samara's jewelry can fit any occasion or budget. Change the color of gold, the type of gemstone, add or subtract diamonds and a limited edition design is transformed into a new look made specifically for you. These meticulously crafted designs of beauty will be treasured for a lifetime.
In her custom work, Samara often reinterprets her designs or creates brand new styles to accommodate a client’s stones, tastes and lifestyle; whether a more secure setting is required for an athletic lifestyle, an inherited gem needs placement in a contemporary setting, or personal taste runs towards a more elaborate look, Samara creates a piece of jewelry that is as unique as our client. Many of Samara’s custom pieces are the result of a client falling in love with the perfect “one-of-a-kind” showcase creation; combining the essence of the showcase piece and a client’s personal requests results in a piece that will compliment any attire or occasion.
In addition, if you start with a special pendant and need a pair of earrings to complete the look, we at Samara Jewelry Designs can help. Coordinating a jewelry wardrobe for you is a specialty at Samara Jewelry Designs. Whether it is a perfectly matched set or multiple designs coming together as a truly eclectic look we can help you make your fashion statement. You can choose a jewelry suite to include pendant and earrings, rings or bracelets, necklace or earring jackets; we have it all!
Samara’s designs have been awarded several honors including the Spectrum Award and being published in the international “500 Gemstone Jewels” and “Showcase 500 Art Necklaces” books by Lark Press. Another highlight was her invitation to present her Boulder Opal pendant and earrings at the Emmys.
