Welcome - Wire Artist John Darlin

Welcome to Gold Designs by John Darlin. Working out of his studio in Indiana, John creates beautiful bracelets formed of gold and silver wire. There is no soldering involved in this art form and it is in the artist’s mind that the piece comes alive. John's work has been seen all over Greater Cincinnati, Ohio, Kentucky, and Indiana. To see where you can meet John next, visit the Events page for a list of upcoming fairs and shows.

All of John's work is hand crafted, and made in America. John creates each piece to order, and pieces are typically shipped within 24 hours. To view John's work, and to order your very own piece, visit our Shop page.

Please note that each piece is custom made to order, and that achieving proper sizing is crucial. In order to make sure that your bracelet is a perfect fit, measure your wrist and add one inch to achieve your proper size.

Thanks for stopping by. If you see something you love, please share it with your friends on social media. You can also Contact John to ask a question, or just say "hi."


In just two short weeks, Summerfair Cincinnati opens at Old Coney Island in Cincinnati.  We are excited and just a bit sad to be approaching our final festival.  Summerfair turns 50 years old this year and we have created a new piece to celebrate the birthday.  Please check it out  under the "shop" option at the top of this page.  The name of the piece is Happy Birthday Summerfair and it is also represented in a picture on this page.


Although we are in the process of exiting the festival circuit, we continue with our special offer for referrals.  Here's how it works.


Buy one, sell two, get one free

Here's how it works: When you purchase a bracelet from us, we will send you three of our business cards for you to share with family and friends.  These cards will have your name written on them.   If two of the recipients of your cards, purchase bracelets from us; we will contact you with information to receive your free bracelet (up to $100. Value). We will make sure your choice is shipped to you without charge also.

We will ask each person ordering, if they have been referred by anyone or the recipient of your card can indicate his/her referral at the time of ordering. 


A word about sizing

 Please do not assume because you wear a certain size in a link-style bracelet, you will need the same size in a wire-wrap bracelet.  You MUST measure your wrist snugly at the small wrist bone and add one inch to achieve your proper size.
