I imagine, like us, you've been following the news about COVID-19. I want to share with you the steps we have been taking to be considerate of our customers and to help prevent community spread.


In addition to our regular monthly deep cleaning, we are continuing to diligently disinfect the door handles, stairway railings, shopping baskets, tables, chairs, tools, credit card machines, phones, and any day-to-day items that seem likely to be regularly handled.

A key preventative measure is washing hands thoroughly and regularly. Our team is committed to this practice and we always provide soap, water and paper towels in our restroom for customer use at any time. 


And in lieu of our usual hugs and warm greetings, we’ve been energetically elbow bumping. We will happily engage in whatever friendly new hello practice you prefer.

For those of you that prefer to shop from home, we offer free shipping to any address in the United States for all orders over $20.

We will continue to monitor the situation with local and national health organizations. Should recommendations change we will keep students and customers informed via email, social media, and our website. If you have any additional questions or concerns, we want to hear from you. You can call us at (608) 873-0210 or email becky@diakonosdesigns.com.


Together we will get through this.

Wishing you health and much happy beading!  - Becky & Ed

NEW PRODUCTS

STEPPING STONES BRACELET KITS

Stepping Stones Bracelet (click here for the song) is similar to our Layer Cake Bracelet in that it uses oval rings and beading is performed on both sides of a 2-track leather bracelet.  We found a versatile 2-hole silver coin bead that serves as the stepping stone(s).  As with all our kits, we assure all components are sized properly to work with each other.

Details:  Choose bracelet or kit.  Kits come with all materials needed and complete instructions. We use artisan beads, oval rings strung on natural leather cording.  PREMIUM TIERRACAST BUTTONS ARE FEATURED.  NOW EIGHT choices available. Prided $22 for kits and $36 for completed bracelets.

Believe   Create   Inspire
For we are God's masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.      -- Ephesians 2:10
 


Diakonos Design Studio is dedicated to creating beautiful clay beads and jewelry that make a unique faith statement.  Becky Guzman is the founder of Diakonos Designs and each piece of jewelry made at her studio is unique, like people -- no two are exactly alike.  "I love the idea that each of us is like a poem or handmade creation that is especially created by God for His specific purposes on earth."  In the same way, each piece of jewelry is unique and specially created for a specific purpose.

Diakonos Designs derives its name from the Greek word "diakonos," (pronounced 'dee-ak'-on-os') which means "servant of a king."  It embodies the intention to serve others with beautiful jewelry that can inspire the wearer and create opportunities to talk about their faith. 

Diakonos Designs jewelry pieces are created using hand-made earthen clay focal beads combined with copper and brass accent beads, semi-precious stones and leather cording.  We use the highest quality components including Vintaj Brass charms and findings, and natural Greek leather.  

We specialize in prophetic jewelry that testifies to the truth of Jesus Christ - or you can design your own unique jewelry that boldly declares your faith, and depicts Christ's transformation in you - by using our studios custom tools and supplies. We offer a wide selection of Christian symbols including crosses, fish, hearts, doves, butterflies, and dozens more.  Check out the Symbolism page for details about the various charms and components that can be a part of your new jewelry!

Located at 187 E Main Street in Stoughton, WI (above Cheesers), our retail store serves South-Central WI.
