Handmade Jewellery Specialist
Hi, I am Gillian the handmade jewellery specialist at Gilliano Jewellery.
I have been making Jewellery for around 10 years but my creative side also extends to dress making, knitting, crochet and card making.
I have been using Swarovski Crystal Elements to embellish freestyle dance costumes making costumes for my daughter since she was three years old because they really sparkle in the lights on the dance floor and made her stand out from the rest of her competitors.
My passion for making handmade jewellery came in the last 10 years when I made jewellery for my daughters wedding and then friends and family asked me to commission pieces for them.
I love making Jewellery so much that I cannot stop so have decided to turn my passion into a business to share with you.
As a handmade jewellery specialist, my passion extends into every piece, with each being made with love and affection for you to wear. Because each piece is handmade it will compliment your outfit for that special occasion be it a Wedding Anniversary, Birthday or Wedding day Jewellery for you to keep and cherish as a timeless memento of your special day.
Or, why not just endulge and spoil yourself!

Why do I choose Swarovski Crystal Beads and Pearls?
Well they are almost certainly the best choice you can make! Swarovski® Crystal beads are considered the best and highest quality bead available. A minimum of 32% lead is used in the manufacturing process, which makes the beads very clear and pure. The crystal is then cut with fantastic precision and colours and/or coatings are added to create beads that shimmer and shine with dazzling brilliance.
Each Swarovski® Crystal Pearl is created around a crystal core, which gives the pearl a weight almost identical to a real pearl. The Swarovski® Pearl coloured coating is resistant to fading and gives a beautiful glow to the pearl, which seems to come from within. These pearls are of the highest quality and are available in a lovely range of colours and a good range of sizes.
I like to use the crystals which are coated in The Aurora Borealis Effect (AB Crystal effect)
During the 1950’s the Daniel Swarovski company made important advances in the development of its crystal production. It experimented with manufacturing processes in which the stones were coated with wafer thin metal particles in order to increase their sparkle. This process required the material to be steamed in a vacuum. In 1956 Manfred Swarovski, the grandson of the company’s founder, created the “Aurora Borealis” which shimmers in every color of the rainbow.
To this day, Swarovski® continues to demand the highest possible quality of their products to distinguish themselves from the rest of the market. They are incredibly secretive about their processes. Even their workers in the factories do not see what other workers are doing so that they cannot share any secrets with others.
Semi Precious Gemstones
Valued for their healing properties, rarity or mere beauty, semi-precious gemstones have been treasured since the dawn of time. Every semi-precious gemstone possesses different attributes such as strength, valour and spiritual healing. This is how semi-precious gemstones came to be used in jewellery and have been used ever since to fabulous effect and why she likes to use the gemstone beads to make you beautiful Jewellery for you treasure.
