There’s nothing like receiving a beautiful gift from someone you love! At Brad’s Designs & Jewelry, we take our creative process very seriously in order to customize the perfect piece of jewelry for your loved one. Our team has been helping celebrate a variety of occasions and milestones for years. Each piece of jewelry that we help bring to life is a sign of love and a wonderful story that is told through the sparkle and design of the piece. We can help you create the ideal present that is a necklace, pair of earrings, ring or bracelet. Oftentimes, our jewelry will not only be worn and treasured by the receiver but will become an heirloom piece that will be passed down to future generations of your family.
If you are concerned about how you will get to your customized piece of jewelry, you do not have to worry! Our team will guide you throughout the process step by step and you will be part of every decision in order to make exactly what you want. We begin the design process with a conversation. We want to understand why you are making this gift and what it represents. Is it for a birthday? Anniversary? Graduation? Proposal? Your consultation will inspire us right from the start. Once we have an idea, we will put it on paper through an initial design. You can help by bringing in pictures or sketches of your own or any other ideas that you have. Once it is sketched out, we will not proceed until you have given our idea the thumbs-up. Next, you will see your gift come to life through a wax carving. For this step, we use our machine and will also do the work by hand.
Next, is the casting part of the process. Here is where we will create the structure of your jewelry piece in the metal of your choosing. We work with gold, silver, platinum and a combination of these three. The fabrication is also completed by hand to ensure there is a high level of craftsmanship. The final step before we hand it off to you is the setting of your stone or stones.
Daily wear-and-tear can really take a toll on your jewelry. Your rings are exposed to so much by being worn on your hands through cleaning, showers, washing your hands and more. At Brad’s we can also inspect and repair your jewelry as well as resize your rings or repair your watch. Our team will clean and inspect your pieces to keep them at their best.
