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!
