Our Process

How do we create jewelry at M Shepard Designs?

Choose your stones from our extensive selection or bring your own.

We use your ideas, photographs, or  drawings to create a unique piece of jewelry.

After you approve the wax model, the piece is cast in your choice of precious metals:

White gold, yellow gold, platinum, or palladium

The stones are set and the ring is finished.







The finished piece is your one-of-a-kind creation!
