Our custom-designed necklaces can truly make a statement that says so much about you and your own story. As a 30-year jewelry designer, Brad of Brad’s Designs & Jewelry has extensive experience in listening and telling a tale that is uniquely your own. Designing jewelry has always been our passion, and we embrace every opportunity to help you shine in your own personal jewelry spotlight. Our pieces are nothing like you see in a retail setting as you are an integral partner in the process from the very beginning. By working with a mix of metals and stones, we ensure that your jewelry is exactly what you want and that the items will be able to be part of your family for generations to come.
At Brad’s Designs and Jewelry, we take a special approach to putting your particular jewelry piece together – whether that is earrings, a necklace, bracelet or ring. At first, we sit down for a consultation in order to best grasp what you are seeking to create while learning about your story and how jewelry can reflect it. This conversation sparks our creative process, and we sketch this out on paper. We want you to help out with this by even bringing in your own sketches or pictures that have inspired your ideas. A wax carving will allow you to really see the direction we are going. We do these by hand or with our state-of-the-art machine.
Next, is the casting after your wax carving has been given the thumbs up. You choose platinum, gold, silver, and stones, and we put it together by hand. Fabrication is also a process completed by hand, and the setting tops off your jewelry with the stones that you have selected. While this outlines how we move through the jewelry design process, we also hope to get to know you and understand how you will cherish your pieces into the future.
If your jewelry is losing its luster or even has become damaged, let us take a look and recommend next steps. Our jewelry repair offerings include soldering, broken clasp or stone replacement, and prong retipping. We also repair watches and can resize your rings.
We can clean your jewelry and polish it up. With a maintenance strategy, we can help your jewelry last a lifetime and be in the best shape for your family’s future generations. When we examine your items, we will provide any recommendations for additional upkeep as well as send you home with tips to maintain your jewelry.
