Handcrafted – Beautiful – Ethical

Custom Jewelry Design

Three steps to your custom design

01

Concept

The first step we take is to discover what it is you’re looking for.

Budget, timeline, design considerations, lifestyle type, and wants/needs are discussed so we can get a full scope of the project at hand. 

02

Design

This time will be directed by our initial consultation. It may involve inspiration photo exploration to better understand your vision, or if you have a clear idea of the project we may jump right into sketches and CAD mock-ups. Once your piece is designed the final price will be calculated.

03

Realization

Your design is paid for and ready to be built.

A wax model will be created and can be sent to you for approval and then the piece will be cast in metal and finished through our normal production.

Hey! I’m Laurel Hill, designer for Northwood Custom Jewelry. If you’re looking to design a one-of-a-kind jewelry piece I’d love to help!

I have spent my life appreciating great design. There’s something about playing with colors and natural materials that I’ve always been passionate about. I can get behind almost any style and design something unique – there is beauty to be appreciated in the traditional, to the modern, and everything in-between. However, I most love mixing precious metals with lab grown gemstones and stunning natural wood tones – and I feel this is where I really shine when working with my clients.

I believe designing jewelry for someone is not just a job, but a relationship. We’ll need to communicate well together and you’ll need to trust me to deliver the project you’re dreaming of. In order to do this, I believe it’s important to talk to my clients openly about expectations, realities, and the limitations of the materials they may want to use. Before I begin a project I try to figure out if I can really help bring your vision to life, and this may mean talking once or twice before we begin.

If you think you’d like to work with me on a design, I’d be delighted to hear from you!

Please try to provide as much information as you can about budget, timeline, and materials you love or hate so I can get back to you with a thorough plan.
