Courtney Prince is the design dynamo behind Doloris Petunia jewelry. Prince is an ex figure skater who started making jewelry in an attempt to create European looking pieces that she was unable to find in America. As her style evolved she started emulating vintage and antique pieces into her creations. Her jewelry is a work of ART!
“One of my most popular services among my clients is taking their own old broken jewelry, maybe that box of vintage brooches or missing pieces in their grandmothers’ attics, and transforming them into lovely pieces of art.”
“I tend to take broken and vintage jewelry and redesign it to create a congruent piece of wearable art. Lately I am quite obsessed with cuffs. I love mixing different textures and things that normally do not belong together in the traditional sense. I have been using a lot of friendship bracelets, nautical rope, sliced agate and other materials to intertwine amongst Swarovski crystals and vintage jewels for a fresh take on many well-known objects that are not thought of as being used in high end jewelry. Iâ€™ve also started working in wax carving and am anticipating the trend of shifting to the smaller pieces, yet remaining totally personalized and unique (away from the big and obscenely bold).”
