The team at Brad’s Designs and Jewelry has been sharpening its skills for decades. Owner Brad Belush has an eye for design and has been helping create beautiful pieces for community members in the Chicagoland and Northwest Indiana region for more than 30 years. It is a process and journey that Brad and his team will help guide you down to end up with a unique ring, bracelet, necklace or set of earrings for yourself or a loved one.
Meaning will really shine through when we put together your jewelry based on our step-by-step process that is a partnership. It starts with a conversation to help us see your vision and hear your story. If there is a why behind your jewelry piece, we will dig it out and use it as inspiration to your custom piece. After the initial consultation, we again will sit down together for the design phase. We want to see your sketches, pictures or other pieces of jewelry that have sparked your idea for a new creation. We want your input, and anything visual will help guide us. We will sketch out a picture of what we envision your jewelry to be, and we will not move on until we receive your final approval.
A wax carving of your actual piece of jewelry is next, and it will help really bring to life what your jewelry will look like at the end. We create this by hand or utilize our state-of-the-art machine and technology. Next, we will cast the piece in the material that you choose, whether it is gold, silver, platinum or a variation of these. Fabrication is completed by our competent hands to help ensure that your jewelry is truly unique. We can also provide a higher level of quality. The crowning touch is setting your stone. Again, we utilize our expert eye and hands-on experience to put your stone into place.
Our professional touch can extend beyond creating to maintaining and fixing your jewelry as well. When rings, bracelets, earrings or necklaces are worn day after day, they can be affected by exposure to weather, hand-washing or just time. We provide services to assist with keeping your jewelry as healthy as possible for as long as possible. We will replace any broken clasps and repair or retip prongs. We will replace lost stones and can solder chains or rings. We will resize your rings as needed or repair your watch. We will clean your pieces and inspect them to see if there are any issues that need to be addressed sooner vs. later.
