Whether I'm remounting heirloom stones, melting down old gold or creating a one of a kind piece with a client, commission work is very satisfying because of the sentimental nature of the pieces.
A student's saved up gold and a rainbow suite of sapphires
silver and 14kw mokume band with a rough diamond crystal in a textured silver bezel
a client's idea of setting diamonds in the top of each prong surrounding rubies they provided. On a 18ky 14kw and silver mokume ring.
The client wanted a 1.25 ct diamond tension set in 14k gold. massive but beautiful.
A family friend wanted a braided look of alternating rubies and diamonds.
the client provided the stone and loved the pairing with damascus steel.
