Jewelry’s meant to be worn.
We’ll be re-making your old jewelry - perhaps a broach, a family engagement ring, or an extravagant piece that’s not “everyday” wearable.
We’ll carve wax to envision a new setting, sculpt it in wax, and then Cat will reset your gemstones, transforming these items into NEW wearable creations, treasured for a lifetime.
Inherited diamonds, antique and vintage diamonds are not standard, so we carefully construct custom settings to perfectly fit your stones in our Vashon Island studio. We can source any additional side stones needed for your design.
Bring an old piece of jewelry that you’d like to refashion into something new.
OLD JEWELRY. NEW LIFE.
We wish to create an environment that’s loving and fosters creativity for all your senses.
Your experience amenities include:
- Estate Jewelry Appraisal Guest Speaker
- Vintage Jewelry Collection For Perusal
- Tea & Cookies
- GRACE GOW giveaway bag with Polishing cloth + gift.
