Custom Jewelry Design in Ottawa

Designed and created in Canada. Serving Ottawa and the National Capital Region.

Express yourself and your unique style with custom jewelry designed right here in the Ottawa region. Let’s work together to create a custom ring for your wedding or engagement, a commemorative pendant, or a new precious metal piece from your old heirloom jewelry.

Meet the Jewelry Designer

Hi! I’m Andrea Shelley – I’ve been creating custom jewelry designs for Canadian clients for over 8 years.

With each creation, I work with you to map your vision and help to turn it into a custom design that will last a lifetime.

I’d love to hear your story and collaborate on a piece that makes you feel special every time you wear it.

Custom Wedding and Engagement Rings

Love between two people is unique. Why not celebrate it with a custom ring that can’t be found in a store?

I’ve designed traditional diamond engagement rings as well as rings using ethical alternatives like Montana Sapphire and Moissanite.

Share your ideas with me and I’ll help you craft a custom engagement ring and wedding band pairing that truly represents your love story.

Unique Redesigns of Vintage or Heirloom Jewelry

Custom jewelry design doesn’t need to be saved for a formal occasion.

We can work together to bring new life to the gold and precious stones found in your existing vintage or heirloom jewelry.

I’ve helped my clients in the Ottawa area to reimagine old wedding rings after divorce. We’ve also deconstructed an heirloom diamond brooch to make jewelry for each grandchild and many other personalized projects.

Transform pieces with a dated style into modern, wearable jewelry that you’re excited to put on.

Commemorative Jewelry for Pets

Pets are members of the family. Commemorate their love with a fine piece of jewelry you can carry with you everywhere.

If you’re looking for a simple, clean style you can purchase an existing design like the engraved paw print pendant currently in my online shop.

See my instructions on how to get the perfect paw print so your engraving will capture all the unique details of your pet’s print.

Looking for a more specific design? Get in touch and we can discuss what’s possible to commemorate your pet.

Custom Family Rings and Commemorative Jewelry

Family first is one of my core values and, while every family is built differently, the foundation is the same: love.

No matter the make up of your family I will create a design that honors each family member and incorporates the story of your journey together.

The Custom Jewelry Design Process

Step 1: Consultation

After you submit your booking request, I’ll review your responses and then book a time to talk.This meeting is done virtually via video call, but if you’re located within range of Ottawa, Canada, we can plan to meet in person if you’d prefer. During your private consultation, we’ll discuss the story behind your custom jewelry piece and how you want it to express your individuality.

Step 2: Design

Once we’ve identified the essence of your vision, I can start bringing it to life. I’ll sketch out two to three different design concepts based on the conversation we had during your consultation. You will select the design direction you like best and (if needed) have the opportunity to ask for any modifications. We’ll work together until we have a final design that will perfectly suit your style.

Step 3: Creation

Let’s make some magic! Now that the design is settled, I’ll go to work to your dream into a reality.

Some projects require a software designed 3D print, other times I will handcraft the entire piece using traditional goldsmithing techniques. I take care of every detail to make sure your custom jewelry comes out exceeding your expectations.

The creation process usually takes 6-8 weeks, during which I’ll keep you updated on the progress of your piece. When it’s time to ship, you’ll get an email from me with your final invoice.

Have a different custom design in mind?

Let’s talk about it! I believe that jewelry is a beautiful way to express yourself and remember your story. If your idea is in line with the designs in the photos above, I’d love to hear from you.
