The jewelry at Glar-Art Studios is designed exclusively by Gina DeNave. First, a pencil sketch is made of the design. Then, the design is created/carved out of wax. The third step is choosing the metal you would like your custom piece to be made out of- 14-karat gold, and silver have been the most common requests but other options are available. The fourth step is sending the piece out to be cast. The fifth step is polishing the jewlery. It is also at this time that any stones get set into your piece. The final step is the final polish on your piece to get that beautiful shine. Below are some custom pieces Gina has either made for clients per their request or some of her original designs for sale.
