custom pieces

This is just a sampling of the custom work that I have done since I started ash hoffman jewelry in 2011. I have been very fortunate to repurpose old jewelry into new pieces, create things from scratch, and help those redesign their jewelry using CAD (Computer Aided Design). I am thrilled that after a few short years, I am able to offer so many ways to create beautiful jewelry for folks to wear. If you are interested in a custom designed piece, please email me at ashhoffmanjewelry@gmail.com to start the creative process. To see more of my work, please visit my Facebook page by clicking here

This mother / daughter duo had so many pieces of jewelry sitting around that wasn't being worn and after losing Grandma, there were pieces of hers passed down that they wanted to make something special out of. The three lotus pendants were made from Grandma's gold and have 4 generations of birthstones on them to symbolize four generations of women, three of whom are still living to remember Grandma.
The citrine ring and cuff were made from two sets of earrings that were passed down to the daughter from her father and grandfather.
The wrap ring with bezel set sapphires on each end were made from unworn sapphire pendants. 
Wanting a special ring to incorporate her daughters birthstones and hers, we designed a simple but stunning bezel set ring with diamonds and a center ruby. I just love this everyday statement stackable. 
She wanted something different and organic that used several of her unworn diamonds. Giving me complete artistic freedom, I designed this bypass ring with repurposed gold and set her diamonds in each organic shaped nugget. 
Using diamonds passed down from family heirlooms and gold from an assortment of special occasions over the years, this is one heck of a ring to celebrate "forever".
For her 40th birthday, she wanted her wedding band set upgraded. We took all of her original diamonds and Cad designed one wide platinum band that looks like it is flanked by bezel set bands on each side. Quite an upgrade on this woman's original setting and we were so so happy with the way it came out! 
 
The blue stone represents the aqua blue waters of Bermuda. Jason's dad is Bermudian so this location was very meaningful for this special occasion since it's also where he proposed with gorgeous rose gold engagement ring. The diamonds around the white gold band are from her family joining the two families together. 
 Using family diamonds, we designed a fresh new ring that is meant to look like three separate rings. Designing this ring through CAD (Computer Aided Design) we were able to create a custom bezel for the marquis and prong settings for each diamond around it.
