Weddings, birthdays, anniversaries, graduations, and other milestones can be commemorated with a unique piece of jewelry--whether for yourself or for a loved one! You can design unique engagement, wedding, or commitment rings and accessorize your wedding party. Or, why wait for an official excuse, you desire a signature piece that speaks of you and you alone!
Designing custom work is a collaborative effort in which my craft and design sense is joined to your unique vision. This is a fun process in which you are actually the creator and I am the facilitator. Working as a team, we each expand our visions through the ideas of the other.
Custom projects are limited only by the imagination and by the necessity of the materials. Ideas can include interpreting a painting into diamonds; marrying generations of family engagement diamonds into a new ring; interpreting Roman themes with a unique stone; creating a setting for a one-of-a-kind Australian Opal; carving a family crest into signets; or restoring heirloom pieces from unfortunate resettings. One-of-a-kind or custom pieces are a terrific way to give an unforgettable gift to a loved one, mark a special milestone, or unify a bridal party or other group. I can also create a personal piece of jewelry from an heirloom piece by resetting a stone or reworking the design to better suit your style.
If you tell me about your special idea, I will call you to see if we will be a good match to fulfill your dream. The first step in realizing your dream is to complete the contact form that will help to define your vision. After we establish a plan for design, a timeframe, a budget and deposit, you will review sketches until we finalize what you want. In addition to creating a completely new piece for you, there are several on-demand custom pieces in my portfolio from which you can choose.
Contact me to start the design process.
