It’s hard to say how a design comes about. I always begin by listening and watching a person, seeing their reactions, looking at their hand structure, asking questions. A skill I have learned over the years is to determine what a customer wants beyond what she (or he) says. Sometimes it’s a feeling I get about the personality of the customer. With even the most undecided or difficult person, I can usually figure out what they want. That makes me smile, and amazes their spouse or significant other.
The custom jewelry I design is very much a joint creation, in part creative inspiration, and in part, the customer’s story – whether that be a love story, a new family story, or a multi-generational tale. I respect the art of jewelry design and individual beauty of the person the jewelry is intended for. It should add to the personality of that person – not “take over” the person.
So if you are looking for that perfect piece of jewelry, or have someone in mind that is a one-of-a-kind, amazing soul, let’s schedule some time to talk. Talk to me, tell me about the person and your story together. Bring your thoughts, a sketch or two…or 10, and tell me what makes them smile the biggest. Let’s talk personality, style, attitude. And if possible, I’d like to meet your “intended.”
Let’s see what beautiful jewelry we can create together!
