One of my favorite parts of making jewelry is becoming part of your story, and your story becoming part of my process.
If you live near or far, I'm more than happy to offer many types of custom jewelry services including: custom wedding & engagement rings, re-purposing your heirloom diamonds, sentimental pieces: wedding mementos, mourning jewelry, celebratory jewelry, or customizing any of my designs to fit your needs. I specialize in creating sustainable, eco-friendly jewelry. I'm accustomed to working with a variety of unusual materials, including rose petals, wedding flowers, old photographs, etc. I'm happy to receive these materials in the mail and prepare them for your special project, just get in touch! Options including:
• reclaimed/post-consumer diamonds (ie: heirloom, recycled, vintage, & harmony diamonds) • 100% recycled precious metals (no newly mined metal)
traceable & conflict-free diamonds • fair-trade precious stones • fair-mined gold
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.
Step 2: Consultation
1. Design Consultation
We will set up a 30 minute consultation, in which we will set up the foundations of your design, including:
-what is your aesthetic, & inspirations for your custom piece of jewelry (whether pieces of my jewelry or other inspiration)
