December 1, 2022
Original Eve Designs is featured in the Covey Club's Holiday 2022 Gift Guide. They say, "For a refreshing take on jewelry, head to Original Eve Designs from jewelry designer and gemologist Eve Streicker. Working with an 18K recycled yellow gold base for chains and settings, Streicker’s creativity shines through with her choice of uniquely shaped and unusually colored precious and semi-precious gems, such as the speckled green banded malachite stones in a necklace and earring suite, which will have debuted at the Philadelphia Museum of Art Contemporary Craft Show in November (necklace: $4800). Because she hand-picks her stones and makes everything by hand, each piece in her collection is one-of-a-kind. She also loves working with clients to create custom designs. Streicker always has fabulous earrings at the ready, starting at $700. We love the rose cut faceted green onyx drop earrings ($1,100) that measure just over two inches long. Order by December 19th for guaranteed December 24th delivery. "
