How does it work anyway?

I just love connecting with other entrepreneurs. That’s why it makes sense that recently I joined a Mastermind group of female entreprenuers. The other day, I was chatting with one of the members who has now become a friend about our businesses. In the process of delving into how I work, she was curious about the custom jewelry design process. Her most inquisitive question was, “How is something made anyway?” As I was explaining it to her, I realized this would be a great thing to share with all of you.

Well, there is a method to the madness and a reason that I contact people in Early November for Holiday gifts. The process is really fun, however it does take a little time, as well.

I created a video to describe how I created a gorgeous Sapphire and Diamond ring for my client. The coolest part is that I used stones from pieces of old jewelry that were just sitting in her jewelry box.


I love to hook people up! Find out how I can hook you up with a special piece of jewelry for you or your loved one by contacting me over here.

    As a kid I played with lost wax..loved making mini horse statues in bronze….and, I believe I set myself on fire…at least once! Loved seeing your process. Seeing the wax cast brought back some memories for sure!
