Custom Design + Private Commissions
The Design Process
Fill Out a Private Commission Inquiry
I love working with my clients to design beautiful, personal pieces of intuitively designed jewelry exclusively for YOU. My specialties include heirloom redesign, engagement rings, wedding bands, and special pieces for self-purchasers who want to treat themselves. To get started, fill out my custom jewelry form with as much detailed information as possible.
Book a Design Consultation
Once your form is filled out, you’ll have an opportunity to book a free consultation to discuss your piece. We’ll explore a variety of options by getting a clear understanding of your personal style, preferences, budget, and lifestyle. My desire during this design consultation is to ensure we are creatively aligned and a good fit.
Stone Sourcing + Design Stage
Once we co-create the project scope, budget, and timeline, we get to the fun part, designing the custom piece. We’ll start by sourcing stones (or designing around yours) and sketch out several ideas based on our initial design consultation. You’ll be delivered 6 to 12 sketch ideas within 2-3 weeks after the design contract is engaged. We’ll co-create the piece and refine the design until we’ve come up with the perfect design for you. A final quote is delivered, a deposit is taken, and we get into the production phase.
Jewelry Production Stage
Once we finalize the design, your piece starts coming to life. You’ll receive progress photos or CAD images for your approval along the way. You’ll have plenty of opportunities to provide feedback to refine the look and feel of the piece. We’ll have the piece cast or fabricated into your metal of choice and within 2 to 6 weeks your piece will be ready for delivery.
The Final Piece
My favorite part of the process is delivering the final product. Upon completion of your piece, you’ll receive a final quote. The balance will be due upon delivery or completion of your piece and we’ll either ship or hand deliver the piece to you depending on where you live.
