The custom design process begins with a personal consultation with Master Designer Kay Frances. During this consultation, you will discuss the design of the jewelry and the materials. From this discussion, a sketch of the piece is developed. The next step is to carve a wax model of the design. Now, the piece is ready to be cast and stones set.
We specialize in white and yellow gold and platinum.
Find treasures hidden away in your dresser drawer or your jewelry box; heirlooms past down; some out of date and style and bring them back to life. Diamond and precious stones, gold chain and rings can be used as an offset for a new project. Kay Frances Designs respects the frontier spirit in re-purposing. Family treasures kept but not worn, have potential to become a newly made piece of art from materials of the family’s past.
