Custom Cut Blue Topaz and Silver Hinged Necklace

This is a piece we commissioned with our friend Phil at That’s Brilliant Lapidary.
Phil is a truly talented gem cutter, and we were happy to build this Custom silver setting to perfectly set off his hand cut blue topazes. Each setting was hand-fabricated to fit its stone and a simple silver chain was added to complete the piece.
We love to design pieces with our customers that are centered around their favorite gemstones. We are happy to help you find the gems and cuts you like. However, many customers have gemstones at home, either loose, or in an old setting, we love to make special designs from those as well!

Fold Formed Silver Necklace with Spessartine Garnet

This piece is comprised of a fold formed sterling silver sheet, framed and then accented with a spessartine garnet. The fold formed area is antiqued to bring out the color in the beautiful garnet. The chain is a 3mm cable link with a heavy infinity clasp. This is just one more example of the handcrafted jewelry we make here daily at Custom.

Amber and Fold Formed Sliver Medallion Necklace

This is a commissioned piece created using a strand of amber the customer already owned. Double strands of amber are accented by sterling silver fold formed disks. The disks were fabricated for this piece, using the fold forming process, here at Custom. Fold forming is equivalent to Origami, with metal. The technique was developed by Charles Lewton Brain, around 1985. It is the only truly new form of metalsmithing created in centuries. So take a look at your old, unused, and dormant jewelry and imagine what new possibilities await you at Custom.
