Custom Hand-Designed Jewelry
Most of what I do is custom and one-of-a-kind so I thought I’d take a moment to discuss how this works here at Artisan Jewelers. Creating a custom piece for the first time can be a daunting goal if you are unfamiliar with the process. First is the consultation. I like to sit down with my clients and get a feel for what they want. Some desires are specific: for example, a diamond ring with an Asscher-cut diamond surrounded by
From here we sort out some basic design elements like the over-all width of the ring, material, symmetry, personal taste as far as style; modern, antique, traditional, eclectic, organic, urban baroque, contemporary filigree, fantasy or a mix.
Designed and Handmade In House
Once a design is chosen I carve from a solid piece of wax. This I also do by hand. It is my niche. I am faster than the machines and can create angles and curves that the machines cannot. The filigree bezel in the featured ring here was carved by hand. It is a fun process and one that I have always enjoyed.
A finished wax can be altered. I encourage people to be completely honest when they try on their wax model. This is the last step before a finished piece and making changes at this point is not a problem, not at all. My goal is to create a unique and stunning piece of wearable art that you will love forever.
