EILEEN HANKS DESIGNS - jewelry artist

 I recently purchased a pair of earrings from Ms. Hanks and was wonderfully surprised! I must admit I have purchased earrings before from craft fairs and individuals selling from their home and have not been very pleased, especially for the price I paid. Well, I can attest, you will not be disappointed in this woman's craftsmanship, styling or pricing! These earrings far exceeded my expectations. I had just had a very successful Premier Design jewelry party and won over $600 in free jewelry. I ordered several pairs of earrings and thought myself being extravagant in purchasing another pair. I sure was glad I did! These are not heavy, so they don't pull on my earlobe, but they are large enough to be noticed in my shoulder length hair. I LOVE them and I'm sure anyone would be ecstatic to have a pair just like them. Do yourself a favor and go thru her designs. Order a pair for yourself. You, too, will be delighted! I can't wait to see more of what she has in store! Thank you Eileen, for a wonderful treat!

There's a lot of handmade jewelry out there, but I have found my forever jewelry designer/maker in Mrs. Hanks! Her designs are not only original and beautiful, but VERY wearable, which I personally love. So much handmade jewelry out there is way too elaborate and seriously overpriced and I've bought from others, who I haven't experienced near the professionalism as I've enjoyed when buying from or special ordering something from Eileen Hanks Designs. She's the best of the best in my opinion!

Thank you for the beautiful custom-made earrings! They arrived quickly and were beautifully packaged. I especially enjoyed the hand-written story behind the inspiration for your creations. I think the earrings are even more beautiful than I pictured them!  I look forward to purchasing more of your designs soon. God Bless,

I just received my 2nd necklace and matching earrings and love them! They can go from dressy to jeans, depending on your plans for the day. Every time I wear them I get compliments.

I was very pleased with the craftsmanship of th earrings I ordered from Eileen Hanks Designs at her Artfire shop. I found that the picture online did not do justice to the product. My special order was also handled promptly. It is unusual to receive correspondence from a vendor after receipt of the product; Eileen wanted to be sure that I had received my order and that I was pleased with my purchase! Craftsmanship and customer service of this level are rare.

So magical! These earrings are beyond expectation. Large, solid and gorgeous! I will be wearing them all the time..so gypsy. Thank you so much Eileen, I will certainly be back to your most amazing shops soon.

Eileen does EXCELLENT work! She did a BEAUTIFUL job on custom made pieces for my nieces this past Christmas. The jewelry was beautiful, and her presentation (gift wrapping) was just fabulous!

I absolutely love my jewelry!!  They truly are pieces of art!  I was anticipating their arrival and I didn't have to wait long.  I was thrilled to receive my jewelry quickly and well packaged for shipping.  You added that "extra touch" in that each piece I ordered arrived in its own hand-made cloth bag with the story and/or inspiration for the piece included.  I have a new appreciation for quality "craftswomanship"!  I love the fact that my jewelry is one-of-a-kind in both beauty and originality!
 Thank you for honestly & accurately describing your jewelry on your website.  I can honestly say "I got more than I bargained for!

“The level of service given by Eileen is fantastic. Being a new customer, I am very impressed by the quality and workmanship of the items I have bought and given as holiday gifts. Everyone loved their new jewelry, especially those that received the special orders I placed. I will be back soon~ Thank you so much!”Tina Sheridan, Washington DC
I ordered a necklace and earring set for my friend as a Christmas present from
Eileen Hanks Designs.  The pieces were uniquely designed using special types of
beads and the craftsmanship was outstanding.  Ms. Eileen even enclosed
a note telling about the stones and/or beads that she used in the jewelry.  My friend
was thrilled with her present!

 "EILEEN HANKS DESIGNS site was recommended to me by a friend, and now I know why – the quality of the necklace and earrings set I bought for my wife for our anniversary was wonderful. The prices are very reasonable, actually low in comparison to much jewelry of a similar nature I've been looking at. The set I bought was far more beautiful in person too. The personal service, I received was outstanding. Keep up the good work and I look forward to seeing your new designs. My wife now does too!”

Hi Eileen,  I just wanted to tell you how much I loved the Christmas pieces I bought from you. Your work and uniqueness of beads and items used has progressed over the years and I'm so glad you are making more of your beautiful jewelry again. I see why you are winning 1st places in your fairs and competitions!!! Your jewelry is beautiful and practical to wear at the same time. not so wild and "out there" that it becomes impractical to wear everyday. I love that part. I've had lots of compliments on the set I kept for myself.
God Bless your continued work.......

I just received my jewelry items I purchased from you and I can't tell you how thrilled I am! Every item is perfect and much prettier in person than photos can reflect, just like you said. Your packing and shipping were professional and super quick, even getting to me faster than I would have expected. I REALLY appreciated the coupon towards my next purchase too! I'll be back for my holiday shopping needs~

I got my first "Eileen Hanks Designs" creation a few months ago.  It is a lovely, antique-looking watch with rose, crystal and earth-toned beads.  Eileen used my favorite colors when designing my watch, and she combined them with a goldtone watch face and safety clasp, making her creation just perfect on my wrist.  I tend to have larger wrists (and ankles for that matter) than most women, and Eileen was able to size my watch up slightly larger because I wanted it to have a more bracelet-feel to it.  Even the packaging my watch was in was very feminine, with lace and ribbons, making me feel so special when I received Eileen's artistic design. 
I plan on purchasing more of Eileens designs soon including an ankle bracelet, since I know she can accommodate my larger size, plus some Christmas jewelry for some of my female family members and friends.  God has blessed Eileen with a wonderful gift, and I know she does each of her designs in His glory.

What a treat! Your jewelry really is gorgeous! I will be more than pleased to give the necklace and earrings to my girlfriend for her birthday. She had been on your site and told me about the things she wanted and hoped to buy soon, but I beat her too it, so she's gonna' be so happy! Thanks for the great service too!

You are a professional artist/craftswoman all the way. I couldn't be happier with my necklace. Made very well. Excellent packaging and shipping time was wonderful. Thanks again~

Eileen, I jsut had to email and tell you how excited I was when my new jewelry set and extra "special order" pair of earrings arrived the other day! Everything was so pretty and you even took the time to wrap the items so nicely, it felt like Christmas or my birthday! I know who I will be turning to for my jewelry items over and over, YOU!
Thanks you again so much for everything and your great prices and the extra little free gift!
