Whether you are ready or not...the Holiday Season is upon us!  Luckily, over here at Matthew Taylor Designs we have been preparing. Matthew has been hard at work on the bench getting lots of great pieces made to fill the shelves with.  Pendants, rings, bracelets, earrings in White gold, Yellow Gold, Rose Gold and some silver too.  Any budget and in any style, we have what your loved ones are looking for.  Matthew is also available to make any custom one of a kind piece as well, if you have a vision - Matthew can make it happen in time for the Holidays.  



Don't forget, we also have our great Buddha Love necklaces available!  A great piece of jewelry with great meaning that supports such a great cause.  Proceeds going to the Cancer Patient Support group.  There is nothing better than being able to give a little extra to those in need, especially around the Holidays.


Call, stop by or send us an email.  Let us help you make your Holiday a special one!

A Sneak Peek

Posted on September 19, 2013 by Matthew Taylor
Matthew's amazing carving skills are at it once again!  For those who haven't seen the very cool process of wax carving/casting before, the images above are a wax carving of the Hotei Buddha that Matthew finished up last week.  He is approximately 3/4" tall and has been sent off to the caster to be molded and casted in Sterling Silver.  Matthew was able to capture an incredible amount of detail in this very small replica.  The wax carving and casting process is a great way to create pretty much anything you can imagine in a metal form.  Matthew has mastered the skill quite well over many, many years of practice.  
The Hotei buddha is known as the laughing or "happy" buddha, this little guy was introduced to us by Tracy Appleton and will be worn as a pendant.  Much like our Buddha Love pendant this pendant was a collaboration between Tracy and Matthew with the intention to share compassion to those around us.  
Stay tuned for photos of the finished product!!

The Buddha Love Project

Posted on February 27, 2013 by Matthew Taylor

Wow. Can anything make us feel better than getting great results from heads-down, finger-to-the-bone work? Ok, yes. When that work can really help to make a difference in people's lives, we feel pretty great! For the last couple of months we've been working with our friend Tracy Appleton on a very special project, and we're finally ready to show off the results.

The Buddha Love Project is beginning it's life as a series of necklaces - in either silver or gold - set with the birthstone of your choosing. Proceeds from the sale of these necklaces will go to the Cancer Patient Support emergency eund. You can find out more about this wonderful organization by heading over to their website.


Yep, that does it. We feel fantastic about this project. We hope you do, too. Head over to the Buddha Love page on our website and snap up a nugget of compassion for yourself. You'll feel great too!
