Have a design in mind? We can help with most all your design needs for a custom piece of jewelry whether it be a pendant, earrings, ring or bracelet.. we can even help you bring a piece of jewelry to life if you don't have a design in mind. The process starts with a picture or an idea: from there we create a wax and set your stones into it. You then view the wax for approval and we can then make changes as needed. After approval of the wax, we can cast utilizing the lost wax casting process.
