Custom Design

1.jpgCobra.jpg3.jpg

Custom designing begins with a discussion of an individual’s taste and lifestyle. Many questions are asked; Do you prefer curves or angles? Are you a nurse or do you sit at a desk? Will you wear this piece of jewelry everyday or only for dress? Samara continues to ask questions until she understands or has a feeling for where you're coming from. Next, Samara will show you samples of jewelry. She will have you try them on to determine  what looks good on your finger or your body frame.

With this information Samara starts to draw possible designs for your project. Often times a specific design can be determined at the initial appointment or she will draw a number of sketches from which you can choose your favorite design. With your selected stones and your chosen design, Samara will then carve your wax model. You are invited to a wax review at which time any changes can be made.

An estimated price quote is given at the time the design is selected, but an exact price is quoted when the wax is carved.The finished wax is weighed and multiplied to know exactly how much gold or other precious metal will be needed. Your piece is then cast, finished, and  the stones set. 

Upon your final visit you are presented with your individually designed piece of  jewelry. Our customers enjoy this whole personal process of custom designing giving their new jewelry creation even more special meaning.
