Welcome to Patricia Reil ~ Jewels 

Patricia Reil began collecting jewelery and creating her own jewelry pieces since she was 16 years old.  She was “a lucky person to find my passion at such a young age.”  Patricia studied jewelry design and making, along with metalsmithing in western New York, continuning her education at the Gemological Institute of America, Penland School of Crafts, John C. Campbell Folk School, New Approach school for Jewelers, along with workshops throughout the United States with noted jewelry artists and metalsmiths.  She has taught art overseas and instructed workshops with the North Carolina Society of Goldsmiths, along with mentoring university student interns in her jewelry studio and gallery, Patricia Reil ~ Jewels (formerly Jewels of Pinehurst), currently located at 110 West Pennsylvania Avenue, Southern Pines, NC

 

How I learn, how i create and how I feel about what I create, is driven by my passion to connect my hands and mind with the precious metals and rocks from the earth.  This is my gift to share.  I have been trained not only in the arts of jewelry making, but also in the art of design, where materials and form must harmonize with the spirited body of the person who will wear each piece.  The jewelry I make is technically perfect.  My medium as an artist is metal and stone; materials that captivate natural beauty, reflect and absorb light and darkness, emit warmth and chills, always linking a constant balance and continual connection of joining gifts from the earth.

My jewelry is very personal.  Often, it is used to commemorate a special time in one’s life.  I have been honored to become a part of that time, creating and hand making a custom piece of jewelry.  When creating a memorable piece of jewelry for my clients, I take into consideration the occasion and meaning of the piece, the lifestyle of the recipient, and the future years it represents. It is a privilege for me to become part of their life process.

In my travels around the world, I seek out and select the finest gemstones and diamonds for my jewelry.  At Patricia Reil ~ Jewels, I feature a vast display of one-of-a-kind jewelry in platinum, gold, or silver with precious gemstones and fine diamonds.  In addition to my handcrafted jewelry, I offer expert jewelry restoration and repair.
