empowering you to have it by creating it or referring you to another Asheville, NC area jewelry designer who can make it.

A significant percentage of the jewelry I have sold at shows in North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Kentucky, Virginia, and California have been customized designs. Often, those I make on the spot are variations of designs that I have displayed at that show. Customers pull together ideas from a design or two and their needs or what inspires them. This process of synergy with customers is so enlivening for me! Some of my favorite designs have resulted from this collaborative creative process. I love the end result when customers are delighted to see their idea and try it on and can’t stop looking at themselves in the mirror.

I’ve created a form to streamline this process more for everyone. This quick form helps us both get clear on the custom design you are looking for and takes into account not only size, color and other design features, but also which intention and meaning you want the jewelry to express. After I receive your results, I’ll e-mail you some ideas and photos based on your preferences, including your budget. You can answer the questions as many times as you want with yourself in mind or with a person in mind you’d like to give the gift of intentional jewelry.

 

Inspired Lapis Lazuli Bracelet

Jen Aly Designs bracelet

Yesterday I woke up with images of bracelets in my head and I rolled over to sketch four ideas. I had a chance yesterday to play with this one. I used silver plated wire instead of sterling since it was a first run and these brilliant lapis lazuli beads. I have more ideas on how to evolve this design and many beads that want to get in on the action.
