How We Create Personalized Custom Jewelry
We start with a consultation. During the consultation, I get an idea of what the client is looking for. Sometimes what they want is just something different and one of a kind.
Next, we talk about what type of jewelry they are looking for. Then what shapes and colors the client likes. We look at jewelry in the stores showcases and maybe photos. Sometimes the client will bring in photos of jewelry. From these, I see what they like and I can begin sketching ideas for the client. Suggesting gemstones and different metals. When the design is approved we take the deposit and begin the work.
Sometimes the custom design
will start with a cherished piece from a loved one. The design will be about remembering a family member or friend. To me, one of the beauties of jewelry and gemstones is that they can be passed down generation to generation.
Below are two examples of those personal design jobs….
Case Study 1
A man came to me and explained that his mother had passed away and wanted us to design pendants for her 5 granddaughters. He wanted to use his mother’s old platinum and diamond brooch pin. We talked about his mom and her relationships with her granddaughters, he expressed that she called them her little angels. Working together we settled on a design of angel wings with diamonds from the brooch set into the wings.
Case Study 2
A man came me to me with his yellow gold wedding band and his father’s white gold wedding band. His father had just passed away and he wanted to combine the two rings. We talked about his relationship with his father and he told me how they enjoyed sailing together. So I designed a wedding band with a sailboat on one side and on the other side a whale’s tail. We rolled out the white gold from his dad’s band to use as the background. And then from my customer’s yellow gold band we pierced the design and welded it atop his dad’s band to make them as one ring. My customer loved seeing his father’s wedding band as the background for the design depicting their shared love of sailing!
