“Luana outlined the process of designing and completing a ring within the first ten minutes of our initial meeting. Throughout the entirety of the project, I always knew where we were, what was next, what was needed from me, and that the budget was always considered.”
— Michael Mellon, custom engagement ring

The Process

Step 1: Get in touch (click here for form)

The design process begins a quick 15 minute discussion, to get an idea of the project. This can take place over the phone, in person, on Skype, or via email.

We will quickly cover:

-what type of jewelry you have in mind

-general idea of look/feel/aesthetic

-what is the occasion & due date

-your budget/price range

if the project seems like the right fit, I will approve you to move into the custom design process.

“My grandmother left me a beautiful diamond when she passed away, and I was interested in making a simple but artful necklace out of it for my wife. Is this something you might be up for?”

“Its truly a pleasure to work with Luana, she is an amazing artist and a master of her craft. I was always impressed with her jewelry and when I decided I wanted my weddings rings to be totally unique and handmade she was my first choice. I brought her rambling concepts and scratchy design sketches and she listened and asked all the right questions, offered great suggestions and actively engaged my ideas until my vision was forged into its physical details between us.”
— Josh, custom wedding rings
