I work closely with clients through the custom design process to ensure the jewelry is beyond satisfactory. By incorporating client’s ideas with my expert jewelry crafting, I am able to make beautiful one-of-a-kind jewelry. Before the actual jewelry is cast, I begin with a sketch and then create a wax model. This wax model shows what the jewelry will look like and is used as a mold for the custom jewelry.
The designing, the wax, and the casting are all included in the fee that is quoted at the beginning of the process. The non-refundable design fees begin at $350 and increase depending on how intricate the design is. The average fee that I charge is $500. Additional costs, on top of the design fee, include metal [gold or silver], any stones I provide, and the labor to set them, enameling and engraving.
Engraving an item is the perfect way to add a special touch that will last a lifetime. You can add names, monograms, special messages, special dates, crests, logos, and more! Personalization with engraving is also a great way to add extra security to your valuables. An engraved message will enhance the memory surrounding the gift and eternalize why it was given. I offer metal plates in brass, aluminum, and painted steel. The painted plates I stock are blue, green, red, and black. Other colors are available by special order.
Items that can be engraved:
- Jewelry- Rings, Necklaces, Charms, Bracelets
- Glass-Cups Mugs, Wine Glasses, Tumblers, Carafes
- Trophies, Plaques, Metal Plates
- Steel-Swords/Sheaths, Knives, Flasks
