Design Your Own
I love working closely with clients to create custom jewelry designs. It's a great way to collaborate so we can make your dream jewelry designs come to life.
There are a number of ways that we can work together:
Design From Scratch
Work directly with Stephanie to discuss design ideas and she will present you with design sketches based on your conversations.
Have It Customized
Do you like one of Metalicious' designs, but you don't see it in the metal you like or with the stone you want? Then have it customized!
Redesign & Repurpose
Using your own jewelry and stones, work with Stephanie to repurpose your piece and give it new life!
Start With a Gemstone
Stephanie has a whole safe of stones that haven't yet been made into anything. If you have a stone in mind, get in touch, as she may have something just for you! Or, use a loose stone that you might already have.

Since every customer and design is unique, so are the prices, so it's best to contact me directly and we can chat about your design and I can give you some price options. As always those, it's best to have a budget in mind. Things that affect the price are complexity of the design, how much labor to create the model, molds and finished piece and of course the weight and type of metal you choose.
I work up pricing for your dream ring and create a custom listing for you to add to your cart and check out.
Once we've agreed on the design, I require a 50% deposit before I start production of the jewelry, then the final balance once it's complete and ready to ship.
I get to work making the model, molds, casting the metal, setting stones, polish and finish. This part takes the longest but is so worth it in the end. It can take about 2-3 months depending upon the complexity of your design. And I can send pictures of my process throughout as I go along which is really fun because then you are really a part of it, too. Just email me for updates throughout the process.
Final payment is due once the piece of jewelry is ready and as soon as that has been received we ship you your new custom designed piece of jewelry!
If you are shipping your jewelry to me, I will send you details of the best address and shipping method to use once we start working together.
Typically the custom design and production process can take anywhere from 1-4 months depending on the complexity of the design, how long the consultation period is and stone selection. It can be sped up though if the piece is needed for a special occasion - like a proposal!
Meet me in person!
If you're in the NYC area, or planning to be, I'd love to meet you and talk about all the options available to you. My studio is open by appointment only, just get in touch to organize a time to meet.
