CUSTOM JEWELRY DESIGN
Let's make something awesome together! Whether it be an engagement ring, wedding band, or a treat-yo-self kinda piece, together we can make magic.
Here's the basic rundown...when working with me, I like to first start by understanding your vision. This can be done in many ways such as talking it out with you at the shop or via phone/email, sketches, or my most favorite way, pictures! Consider gathering together a collection of images or even putting together a Pinterest board of images that inspire you, pieces that embody the look you want, or even examples of finishes or setting styles you like.
From your inspiration, I'll get my design on and create something we both wouldn't be ashamed to bring home to mom. At least that's the goal! But whatever happens, rest assured we'll go over the final model to ensure you love it. And not only until you've expressed your undying love, I'll proceed to the making magic process.
Just so ya know, I typically need minimum 6 weeks to complete your custom awesomeness, sometimes longer depending on the complexity and how long the idea-phase takes. Also my design strengths shine in modern, edgy, minimal, and art deco/vintage inspired designs. However, I'm always up for a challenge!
If you'd like to work together, please take a few moments to answer some questions below. Please allow me up to 3 business days to get back to you.
I look forward to working with you!
Are you an independent jewelry designer? Do you have a new design that you can't seem to express in 3D or have one that's incredibly popular that you need to increase your small scale production abilities? I'd love to help you out! I've worked in the fine jewelry industry for 5+ years and have been CADing for 3+ years. Take a look at some of my CAD examples below.

PRICING & WHAT YOU GET
Each CAD is priced based on complexity of your design and go in increments of levels 1, 2, & 3. Level 1's typically include simple bands with no stones or maybe a simple solitaire; whereas level 3's can include designs using a lot of stones, filigree, or a twisty shank. On occasion, the design can be considered an 'in-between' i.e. 2.5. I will always let you know ahead of time what level I consider it.
- Level 1 = $60
- Level 2 = $90
- Level 3 = $120
- Level 4 = email for quote
Each pricing level includes two CAD changes and one additional finger sizing. A change = modifications/tweaks to the design, not something that changes the design more than 50% from its original. If it’s something I made a mistake on that needs to be changed, this obviously wouldn’t be counted as part of the two included changes. After the two included changes & one finger sizing, anything additional will require a fee determined on a case-by-case basis starting at $15/change/finger size.
The CAD I create is for manufacturing purposes and not the glitzy, realistic rendering. So the prongs will be taller than the stones, the metal will seem a bit chunkier, or the bezel may be a little wider...but all of this is done with the finishing of your piece in mind. Typical turnaround time is 3-5 business days depending on the amount of designs given at a time and complexity of the design(s). If you need it completed sooner, rush fees may apply.
Please note my CAD services are best suited for independent jewelers (individuals or small companies) who are working professionals. Also please understand, as your CAD designer, I am not designing your design for you but merely taking your design and translating it into a 3D CAD model. I do however, on occasion suggest design edits to help create a manufacturable design.
