NOTE: I am currently living in Bangkok and do not have a jewelry studio so I cannot accept any jewelry commissions.
However, I have premade several earring and pendant designs for sale on my Etsy store, that will ship from Kansas.

Commission your own unique jewelry creation and see what past clients have requested

I am so very thrilled to make custom jewelry per request, not only to assist making dreams come true, but these commissions have guided my jewelry development. Here are some guidelines for requesting your unique jewelry design, followed by images of past commissions. To request a custom jewelry piece, please send me an email with the five criteria listed below and describe to me the amazing design you have in mind - thank you in advance.

I will need to know the following 5 criteria:

1) Would you like to use one of my jewelry designs from the past portfolio or current store,
or if you have something really amazing in mind, can you email me a scanned pencil sketch?

2) What type of jewelry project would you like me to make: a pair of earrings, pendant,
a dynamic bracelet with forged S-clasp, and/or a stunning necklace with magnetic clasp?

3) What length (inch or mm) would you like your bracelet, pendant's cord, or necklace?
See detailed instructions below for measuring your exact bracelet or necklace length.

4) What materials (metal wire and gemstone beads) would you like me to use?
Note that I can give you several price quotes based on different metal types.

5) Shipping zip code for postage, and best contact method (email, phone, skype) for discussing any details.

I will send you a response within a week (hopefully) with a price quote that including insured priority mail shipping. Once the final details are agreed upon, I will request a 50% material deposit by mailed personal check or with an emailed PayPal invoice. I typically deliver finished work within two to three weeks (hopefully), upon receipt and happy acceptance; I will request the final 50% payment. Thank you for your consideration, knowing I handcraft each piece with a labor of love.


Exact Bracelet Length: Measure your wrist with a flexible fabric tape in two locations; first around the thinnest part of the wrist which gives a ‘minimum diameter' to which I would add half an inch (13mm) for comfort and clasp function, and secondly around the knuckles of an open hand for a ‘maximum diameter' so the bracelet cannot roll off the hand.

Exact Necklace Length: Measure your neckline with a flexible fabric tape just above the collar bone, to which I would add one inch (25mm) for comfort and clasp function; typically 16-inch (40cm) is a women's neckline, 19-inch (48cm) is a men's neckline, 22-inch (56cm) for macho men, 25-inch (63cm) for really macho guys, and 29-inch (74cm) for grandmas who wear jewelry over the sweater.

Considering Metal Options: silver is relatively cheap, and gold is quite expensive, therefore I primarily use sterling silver and 14k gold-filled wire for their inherent strength, noble shine, and tarnish resistance. Jewelry designs crafted from sterling silver price $120 - 400 for bracelets and $250 - 950 for necklaces; and using 14k gold-filled wire doubles the price.
