I hope that you all had a nice Christmas !:) 

Here are some Christmas tree pins that we have made along the years.
Some of them were designed for a special project called 'Christmas trees around the word' !

The Hanna Bernhard lemur in our Xmas tree is an order from Jane and Judy Aldridge of blogs seaofshoes and Atlantis home, it is not finished yet but we have started to set the stones as you can tell on the picture..

                  Here are some Hanna Bernhard tree pins...

We create a display for most of our pieces so customers can enjoy their jewelry
as a decorative object when they don't wear them : here is a picture of this Indian
Christmas tree pin on its display, including tree and tiger.
