1. Consultation - It is best to start with a conversation to get to know each other and the reason behind why you are looking for custom jewelry. The more I know about who I am designing for the more special I can make the piece. We will discuss design ideas, budget and stone options. Will we be repurposing stones or sourcing new ones? Some people know exactly what they want but the majority just know they want something unique and special. If you don't know what you want we will figure it out together. Consultation can be done in person, over the phone or virtually.
2. Design - If we need to source stones we will complete stone selection and complete a CAD image and render of the piece. At this stage we can make changes to the design. This stage can take the most time depending on how long it takes to source the perfect stones and get the design exactly right. Estimate about 2 to 5 weeks.
3. Manufacturing - After the stones and design have been approved we begin to manufacture the piece. It will be cast, set, polished and checked for quality. Plan for this to take about 3 weeks.
4. Delivery - If you are local in the Quad Cities I can hand deliver. If not, I will arrange for secure, signature required delivery.
