Hand-created custom jewelry pieces have been our specialty at Brad’s Designs & Jewelry for more than 30 years. Our team has been putting together unique, one-of-a-kind bracelets, necklaces, rings and earrings for community members throughout the Chicagoland and Northwest Indiana region. Our process is tailored to each client who we feel becomes part of our family for years to come. Each custom piece will be a shining example of what you are celebrating whether it is a birthday, anniversary, graduation or just because. Our hope is that your special jewelry will be part of your family’s story for years to come.
If you are hoping to mark a special occasion with a bracelet or ring, we can start with a conversation today. At Brad’s Designs & Jewelry, we sit down and listen to what you are all about, what you are celebrating and what you hope the recipient will feel when he or she receives the gift. After the consultation and inspiration, our design team will get creative and begin sketching out what your piece will look like. We want you to be part of the whole process, but especially the design ideas, so we encourage you to pass along any photos that capture some of what you like or any of your own sketches or drawings.
In order to help you see what we are creating, we mold a wax carving by hand or with the assistance of our machine. You will need to sign off on this portion of the process before we will cast your necklace or ring in the chosen material: silver, gold, platinum or a combination of these. We fabricate your jewelry by hand, so that it will be as unique as its recipient. Setting the stone is the final component of the process before we pass it along to you.
At Brad’s Designs & Jewelry, our team can work with you side-by-side to help your jewelry stay sparkling for generations and generations. If you bring in your jewelry, we will look at it closely to see if there are any loose stones or damage that needs to be addressed. We can switch out broken clasps, solder chains, rings and other metal jewelry or replace an old or damaged stone. We can retip the prongs on your piece that are responsible for keeping your stone in place. We can help with resizing a ring that no longer fits or repair your watch. We can also clean your jewelry to help it sparkle and shine once again.
Jewelry is our love language and we can help it be yours for your next celebration! Contact us through our online contact form when you are ready to begin the design process.
