Repair, Restoration and Custom Design
Kat made a sketch of the pendant
This ring was a custom design, created start to finish. The first step was creating this computer generated wax pattern.
The final finished beautiful pendant. Customer was extremely satisfied and grateful!
Here shows the almost finished pendant
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.
A customer brought in this picture that he wanted re-created from a pendant that was stolen from his wife.
She then sized down the sketch with specific instructions.
The raw casting in 14k yellow gold
This is a piece of prehistoric petrified wood that a customer brought in with an idea of a necklace he wanted to make for his wife. We sent it to our stone cutter and he cut these beautiful perfectly shaped, polished pieces. Courtney wire wrapped the pieces and connected them with chain to finish the necklace.
Custom designed blue diamond ring
This 14k black hills gold ring was re-set with new head, new prongs and a broken leaf was re-created
A customer brought in two rings and wanted to make a cross pendant using the diamonds from both rings. 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.
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.
This emerald "link" came from a bracelet that was purchased by one of our 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 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. Kat also drill/set a diamond on each side to enhance the beauty of the center stone.
The finished product in which Kat kite-set a Mt. st. Helen's color changing "twilight" gemstone.
