Custom Jewelry Design
I can work with your ideas and provide any stones, gold, platinum, or silver needed.
I can use your jewelry to make something new. This way the sentimentality can be preserved.
I still hand draw the concepts and hand carve the wax for casting.
More about wax carving later.
I will meet with you in person if possible or work through emails and online meetings until the design meets your desires.
Many stores require a deposit to cover the drawing concepts. I do not. I am old fashioned and work by a gentleman's agreement.
The design development is to help me understand what you want.
I only accept your money when your jewelry is complete.
I can engrave on most metals.
Designs limited only by the imagination.
