Alexandria, Louisiana (PRWEB) June 10, 2009
Louisiana born jewelry designer Debra Pitre Hertz created Dare to be Different Designs several years ago during a period of medical convalescence. The business initially operated within several Central Louisiana area boutiques.
As the client base expanded to states beyond Louisiana, the need for a web presence became more important. To meet that demand, and expand its market even further, Dare to be Different Jewelry designs (http://www.dphjewelry.com) created its strong new web presence.
The work is represented by two distinct collections. The Contemporary Collection brings together gold and silver, smooth pearls and rough gemstones: it juxtaposes varied materials in clean, contemporary and timeless designs. Debra Hertz, the designer, says, "Expect the unexpected."
The Artifacts Collection, the newest addition to the Dare to be Different Jewelry Designs line features a fascinating selection of necklaces created with rare and archeologically interesting objects. The beads, artifacts, amulets, shells, bones, etc. each have a history. In addition, the history is thoroughly researched and presented on the site. "I have always been fascinated by history, and the Artifacts Collection is a creative extension of that interest," said designer Hertz.
What sets this jewelry designer apart from others? "It's the entire package. From the individual components, to the innovative design approach, each step of the process is carefully planned. I conduct extensive research on the pieces and provide that information for each necklace in the collection. In addition, our packaging includes several components to assist the buyer in maintaining the jewelry and understanding its history."
Dare to be Different Designs Jewelry was created to provide a collection of individually designed and handcrafted jewelry for the discriminating buyer. One of a kind jewelry bringing together art and fashion in a new and innovative way.
With the new online presence, http://www.dphjewelry.com, Dare to be Different Jewelry Designs is now open for business 24/7.
