Award-Winning Jewelry Designer Daniel Gibbings Opens New Studio and Showroom

| From

MONTECITO, Calif. - Oct. 3 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Santa Barbara visitors and locals can take an inside look at the art of fine jewelry production from raw material to handcrafted finish when designer Daniel Gibbings opens his newest studio and showroom. Customers will have a chance to watch the artist's work in progress and purchase finished product directly from the surrounding showroom where his signature pieces, evoking the richness and opulence of Byzantine cultures and Medieval worlds, are on display. Daniel Gibbings Jewellery - which with its spelling gives a nod to his English background and training - is scheduled to open October 17th on Montecito's Coast Village Road among the town's many unique, upscale shops and services.

Most recently receiving a 2005 Reader's Choice Award from Colored Stone Magazine, Gibbings's work has also been voted to the top of Santa Barbara's major "Best Of" lists and featured in publications including Montecito Magazine, Santa Barbara Magazine, Santa Barbara Food & Home, The News-Press and The Independent. South African born, he has designed and manufactured jewelry in the United States for over 20 years, earning a loyal following of discerning clients throughout California and the world.

Gibbings has previously established two successful retail jewelry stores and understands the draw of the open workspace. "The process of shopping for jewelry is often just as significant and memorable as giving it or wearing it," he explains. "This layout allows people to watch and understand a bit more about the jewelry as it's created - making it an experience, an event."

With the launch of this venture he will introduce his latest collection which is a simpler, more refined line of jewelry using colored sapphires, unusual diamonds and large cabochons. Upon request, Gibbings will continue creating individual commissioned pieces for private clients.

Combining a variety of techniques including hand engraving and metal inlay, his work is characterized by rare gemstones, high carat gold, ancient coins and thick, hand wrought chains. The result is a blend of early civilizations and new ideas influenced by his primitive sense of design and traditional training. He remains true to his vision of creating luxury items that are everyday wearable and complement an evening gown or a favorite pair of jeans.

Daniel Gibbings Jewellery is located at 1187 Coast Village Road, Suite 10 F in Montecito, California and will be open 10am to 5pm Monday through Saturday. For more information, please call 805.565.1284 or visit
