Custom Design

Our designers at MAKE MADE specialize in creating truly original pieces with personality and presence.   Whether it’s an engagement ring, wedding bands, or a brilliant statement piece for a special occasion, we will work one-on-one with you to create a bespoke piece, tailored to both your style and lifestyle. 

We will source conflict free gemstones and recycled metals -OR- We are happy to work with your own stones and your recycled gold to create your one-of-a-kind future heirloom. Using your own gold has the added benefit of cutting down on cost since we offer a credit towards your new creation.

The Process

The process starts with an initial fact gathering consultation (via email, phone, video chat or a visit to the studio) to see what you are interested in designing. This step is free of charge and helps both of us determine if one of our designer's work will meet your expectations and needs. We will talk about your lifestyle, how you wear your jewelry, your color preferences and which MAKE MADE collections appeal to you. The design process often becomes a collaboration between designer and client.

Next, we review them together. Once the design details are finalized, a 50% non-refundable deposit is taken at this time to procure materials and start the work.  The balance is due before shipment or delivery of the work.

Beautiful handmade things take time to create. Custom projects vary in time. It can be as little as a few weeks or up to several months. We will discuss the timeline during the designing process.

what our clients are saying...

Katie does truly incredible work. She made an incredible engagement ring for my wife and endured hours of listening to my vision for the ring. She also took a lot of time to find the perfect diamond that fit the vision we had dreamed up.

So happy with Danielle's custom design work that she did for me. She worked with me, listened to my ideas, made suggestions, and produced an end result that I will enjoy for many years.
