This ring was a custom design, created start to finish. The first step was creating this computerated design and mold.
A customer brought in the 18k yellow gold ring that was previously owned by his family. Kat had to completely rebuild the prongs because they were too worn down to re-tip. He bought the stone on a trip to Europe. It's a genuine Swiss blue topaz.
This ring was created for a customer's significant other. He brought us this raw piece of Lapis Lazuli from Ukraine and we sent it to our stone cutter to cut this perfectly round cabochon. The ring was custom ordered and the stone was glued in using epoxy.
The final finished beautiful pendant. Customer was extremely satisfied and grateful!

The finished product
This emerald pendant came from a bracelet that was purchased by one of her repeat customers. The bracelet was too big for her. So Kat removed one link and soldered a bail on top to make her a matching necklace.
A customer brought in 2 teeth from an elk that his father shot in the 1950's, and 2 from an elk that the customer shot himself. He wanted to make a money clip for him and one for his son with one of each elk's teeth on each of the clips. This was the custom piece Kat came up with to look like hoof prints.
This is a piece of prehistoric petrified wood. A customer brought this in with a picture of the necklace that he wanted to make. We sent it to our stone cutter and he cut these beautiful perfectly shaped, polished pieces. Courtney wire wrapped the pieces of chain in between the pieces to finish the necklace.
Kat made a sketch of the pendant
A customer brought in these two rings and wanted to make a cross pendant with them. Kat drew up this sketch, melted down the gold from the rings and soldered together multiple heads in order to create this wonderful custom piece.
