When your child survives a horrific car accident, what do you do? after alternately hugging and scolding (not necessarily in that order) you pick up the pieces...literally! Our customer picked up a piece of the broken windshield and brought it to us to make a little memento. together we designed this silver medallion featuring atlas shouldering the weight of the world, balanced on a platform made of broken glass. it's designed so the glass is set in such a way that you can see it from both sides of the piece, although you can't see through it anymore. Hand engraved on the reverse side is a personal inscription.
Jewelry should capture the emotions of the memorable events in your life. harness our experience, skill and creativity to help you create the most personal pieces of jewelry you will ever own.
There are many things that set custom-designed jewelry apart from mass-produced jewelry, but the personal meaning behind a custom piece is arguably the most important difference. As we browse through the picture books that make up our portfolio here at The Art of Jewelry, we are reminded of the story behind each and every piece we’ve made. Most are happy celebrations of momentous occasions and milestones in our customers’ lives. Others are bittersweet - poignant memorials between customers and loved ones who have passed.
I think of this part of our webpage as a forum for sharing the stories and the thought behind the pieces - with emphasis on the painstaking efforts that go into making certain that each piece precisely reflects the emotions invested in it.
With our customers’ permission, here are some of our favorite stories:
