Handmade Jewellery Created with Love 

Hi, I am Gillian the handmade jewellery specialist at Gilliano Jewellery.

I have been making jewellery for the last 15 years but my creative side also extends to dress making, knitting, crochet and card making.

I started using Swarovski Crystal Elements primarily to embellish my daughters freestyle dance costumes from when she was around the age of three as the quality, shine and lustre they gave on the dance floor made her stand out from her competitors leading her to gain many trophies along the way which is why I continue to use their crystals to make quality jewellery for you wear to give you glamour and sophistication and stand out from the crowd.

Passion

My passion for making handmade jewellery came in the last 14 years when I made jewellery for my daughter’s wedding and then friends and family asked me to commission pieces for them.

I love beading and creating new designs and am inspired by not only my customers but also other talented designers and take pleasure and enjoyment from creating jewellery from their lovely patterns which I reproduce in various colour combinations for you to wear. These designs are identified on the relevant product pages.

I love making Jewellery so much that I cannot stop so have decided to turn my passion into a business to share with you.

Specialist

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 indulge and spoil yourself!

I use Genuine

Swarovski® Crystals

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 colour 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.

Why Semi Precious Gemstone Jewellery?

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.

I hope you enjoy browsing my Website and I look forward to receiving your orders.
