Custom Jewelry Designs
The Custom Process
We will work with you to develop a unique jewelry design specific to your tastes and personality. Whether it be from a concept, photo or idea that you already have or a design that is developed here with us in-house. The objective is to deliver to you a distinctive and original design that is tailored to your individuality.
The process can begin by looking through our many in-store designs or browse through any of our design portfolios, provide a working sketch to a full rendering, wax model and on to the finished piece. The process is very careful and deliberate allowing the full communication and understanding that is required in the custom design process. There should be no surprises with the exception of delight once the project is brought to completion.
We supply only new, high quality metals and gemstones, or we will use pre-owned and family heirloom jewelry. Hand-crafted metalwork, model wax carvings, lost wax casting and CAD-CAM technology are among the processes we use.
Our workmanship is refined and precise producing a custom product that is artisan crafted.
From sketch to the finished piece
Lee Dorn is a true artist. He has the ability to talk to you about your vision for a unique piece of jewelry & then turn it into reality. I had a beautiful diamond in a traditional setting that had been sitting in a safe deposit box, unworn for a number of years. Lee asked me to describe the ideal setting as he sketched my description. I fell in love, first with the sketch and then when I saw the ring! Lee had transformed my ordinary ring into an extraordinarily beautiful work of art!?Susan H., Middleton, WI
