Featured Artist: Elektra Jewelry


Dina Cuomo is the artist/jewelry designer of Elektra Jewelry. She got started making jewelry over 10 years ago after taking a jewelry making class while on vacation in New Hampshire, but started a business about 1 year ago.

She states "I have loved jewelry and gemstones all my life. My travels to Greece and Greek background have influenced my love of 18k and 24k gold and my choice to work with gold vermeil.(24k over sterling silver) I make one of a kind jewelry pieces to accommodate many different styles and fashion trends."

Diana's Etsy shop contains beautiful works such as this necklace (once again, had to add this one because my husband works at NASA and is a space nut). It is fashioned with dazzling genuine Murano sterling silver lined beads, swarovski capri blue bicones and sterling silver Balinese beads.

All of Diana's pieces are one of a kind, and her favorite materials are gold vermeil, gold filled, sterling silver ,genuine gemstones,lampwork beads and Murano glass.
