Here at Precious Metalsmith we employ a team of artists and master craftsmen who are capable of taking your ideas and creating pieces of wearable art that is one of a kind. We completely construct your piece here in our store. Depending on the intricacy of your design, you will first receive a hand drawn sketch that brings your ideas to life. Once we lock down a design that you love, we create your piece on a computer program that allows you to see what the piece will look like before it even exists. A wax is then carved so you can hold the piece in your hand and see the scale of the design. Once you approve the wax, we use lost wax casting to cast your piece. Last but not least it gets cleaned up and stones set. Below are pictures showing the design process. Custom work generally takes about six to eight weeks to create.
