Custom Design

My favorite thing about being a jeweler is the exploration that comes through custom design work; learning about people and crafting their stories into tiny pieces of wearable art. If you're looking for something unique that isn't in my current inventory or the inventory of any other jewelry store, please do not hesitate to contact me to create an original design.

In most major and chain jewelry stores, if they offer "custom design" they usually mean a process of configuring a piece of jewelry, swapping out a preset library of shanks, findings, settings and stones to the customer's taste. This certainly does allow shoppers to arrive at something that they genuinely like, but it's not truly custom design.

My process centers on learning your stories and exploring your aesthetic, then lending my own eye and experiences so that together we discover a completely new objét that neither of us could have conceived of on our own. What we design together will be bound only by the laws of physics and our imaginations. Together we will create something personal and purposeful that eventually becomes part of the story it tells.

While you read through the stories of the custom pieces below, you will get a feel for how much of each wearer's individuality goes into their pieces. It would be my honor to work on your story with you, so please contact me to begin your own custom design. There is a $100 non-refundable fee for the initial consult, which will be deducted from the final cost of your piece when we make your design a reality. Please contact me with any questions about the process.
