Mauzie’s Custom Jewelry
At the heart of Mauzie’s artwork and jewelry is her passion for creating custom pieces. An artisan in the truest sense, she immerses herself in each and every project, bringing to life the creative process resulting in distinctively thoughtful and awe-inspiring pieces of jewelry. Taking art to the next level, she encourages her clients to take part in the design process, and incorporates their inspirations, styles, and personality into their commissions. Mauzie designs and hand makes all jewelry from conception through completion. For commissioned pieces the process can be a rewarding experience for all involved, as skill and passion are at the core of each piece of jewelry she creates. When clients bring an idea or inspiration for an original piece of jewelry, they walk away with tangible representation of that piece. Mauzie’s designs do not follow one specific trend or theme, rather, each is unique in form. She takes a holistic approach to the design process and the physical creation of each individually designed piece. Creating unique and original jewelry pieces requires a technically minded and creatively driven individual who is capable of incorporating the long-standing elements of form and function. Mauzie is such a person. Merging old world artistry with modern design tools, Mauzie’s design process is comprehensive, detailed, and creative.
- Consultation– During a consultation for the commissioning of a piece of jewelry, Mauzie’s clients can expect to answer a host of questions for the purpose of creating a piece made to order. Such questions may include: What type of jewelry would you like created? What materials would you like used in your piece? Would you like to incorporate your own materials? Who is it for? Is it for a special occasion? What is the person like? Do you have a specific budget? Is there a deadline by which the piece should be completed? A mixture of technical and personal questions aid Mauzie in envisioning the right piece which will encompass the jewelry’s sentiment and wearer’s personality.
- Deposit and Design– To begin the design process, Mauzie requires a non-refundable deposit. Upon deposit, she creates initial drawings and sketches based on the consultation. After sharing the design elements and sketches of the project, she clearly defines the design, budget, and timeline.
- Sketch to CAD– After consultation with the client and subsequent approval of the final design sketches, Mauzie renders the image utilizing Computer Aided Design (CAD) programs. Such renderings further define the detail and intricacies of the piece which aids Mauzie in the final step in the jewelry design process.
- Creation and Build– with CAD images on hand for technical reference in the build process, Mauzie’s passion comes to life with the physical creation of her design, resulting in a one-of-a-kind piece of jewelry.
