custom design for any occasion 


From engagement rings, wedding band, pendants, or a pair of earrings, I tailor each project to it's own unique needs. I approach every as a collaboration with my clients and guide the process step-by-step so that together we create a piece of jewelry that will be personal and special.  Because I do most of the work myself, from concept to completion, I am able to pass down savings to my clients providing a price point that is fair and transparent. 

I am also proud to say that all of my materials and stones come from conflict free, fair-trade, and traceable sources and suppliers.

Here is a more detailed breakdown of the Custom Design process: 

1. Consultation & exploration

With zero obligation, I sit down with each prospective client to understand exactly what they are looking for. Sometimes people know exactly what they won't and many times they just have some rough ideas. I help guide this process and share references, past work, and rough sketches until we define a creative direction to head down.  

2. designing 

We elevate the the sketching to more refined drawings and explore materials (metals, gemstones, etc..) to use for the project that meet the creative goals, and also budgetary parameters. After a few iterations and landing on a final design, we then shape the piece in detail out of wax, and/or go through a CAD imagine process for final approval before we go into production. 

3. production and finishing

After final sign off on design and materials, we move the project into production. Within a few days/week the project is completed and ready to be picked up. When possible, I also like to pass on the original sketches as keepsakes. Lastly, I always offer a lifetime of free cleaning.
