A gift can be a way to mark a milestone, such as a significant birthday or anniversary, as well as a way to celebrate a retirement or new love blossoming. No matter what the occasion, a unique and customized gift of jewelry is a special way to showcase your feelings and how much you appreciate your loved one or family member. Their smile will sparkle when they open a shiny and sparkly new ring, bracelet, necklace or pair of earrings. At Brad’s Designs & Jewelry, our owner has been part of the industry for more than 30 years. Brad brings an expert eye to all of his creations that will surely spur many hugs and kisses of thanks from the gift recipient. Brad sees the artistic side of creating unique pieces of jewelry, and he will guide you throughout the process when you are ready to put together a beautiful new piece.
The Brad’s Design team believes that behind every beautiful new piece of jewelry is a story. That is why the team begins the design process with a simple conversation during a consultation. Here, you will discuss what the gift is for and why you are looking to create something customized for the recipient. The story and reason for the present can spark the inspiration for Brad and his team when they are putting together an initial design idea. After the consultation, a design will be sketched out that can be spurred by your very own sketches, pictures, old pieces of jewelry and beyond. When you review these sketches, you will need to really offer your input, so that the wax carving can be created according to your exact ideas and opinion.
The wax carving will really bring the design to life. It is put together by hand and through the latest in jewelry creation technology. The next step is the casting where the jewelry is cast in the metal of your choice whether that is gold, silver, platinum or a mix of any of these. The setting will put into place the stone or stones that you have selected. This part of the process is also done by hand for the customized approach that the team at Brad’s believes in.
Jewelry that is worn every day or often really does take a beating. The prongs can get worn down and scratches can occur or stones can become loose. At Brad’s, we offer repair and cleaning services to keep your jewelry in top-notch shape. Among the issues that we can address include: stone replacement, watch repair, resizing of rings, replacing broken clasps and retipping prongs that secure your jewels.
