This is the process to create a unique custom design for
After talking with you, via email and/or phone, I work up
a design based on our discussions about the stones, shape,
overall size, and estimated price.
Next, I add a private page to my website with digital image(s)
of the design created for you.
Sometimes, the design is developed from an existing piece
of my jewelry (substituting different stone(s) or stone shapes),
or it may be a completely new design based on our conversations.
I use a graphic editor to create the image(s) so you can
"see" what the piece will look like. Now, we have
an actual picture to work from and you can make suggestions,
comments, or modifications.
This way, when we arrive at a final design, we both know
what the piece will look like. To paraphrase, you can be sure
that not only did I hear what you said, but also that I understood
what you wanted.
Some of the pages below show both the draft of a design and
an image of the finished jewelry, some do not. It just depends
on whether I was able to take a good photo before I mailed
the piece off.
I believe it is an exceptional privilege to be able to work
at what I love - creating jewelry and cutting stones.
I have the incredible opportunity to work with clients to
create beautiful handcrafted custom jewelry that will be treasured
as a special gift or purchased "because you deserve it"!
Please call or email if you would like to work together on
a special piece.
