Custom Jewelry Design

"From concept to creation the evolution of a piece of jewelry comes from a personal place... It is my desire to create emotion that you can wear... everything else is just jewelry."
—Erica Sanchez-Hawkins

1. The Process: Meet with Erica and bring your ideas. She will collaborate with you and start with a sketch.

2. The CAD: In the second part of the experience we will have a CAD image made, and you can come back and see this in 24-48 hours. Changes can be made throughout the process.

3. The wax: We can now use our new 3D wax printer and the wax should be ready to view in 2-3 days from the initial appointment. After the wax model is approved the piece will be cast in the gold of your choosing.

4. Cast, set, and finish/polish: for numerous reasons our casting is done off-site. This better serves our clients and keep costs down.

5. Delivery: the final and most exciting part. Besides its unveiling, each custom piece comes with a statement of replacement cost document for your insurance company, and all docs and are also given on a flash drive for easy reference.
