Setting the Stage for Your Custom Adventure: Wally McSorley of Custom Jewelry by Tampico.US
How to describe the custom jewelry experience?
The glowing recommendations that clients have left for CustomMade artisan Wally McSorley of Custom Jewelry by Tampico.US give us some insights.
She has a story for every piece of jewelry and I have to occasionally remind myself that her jewelry was purchased and not adopted.
Our adventure in customizing our engagement ring was truly enjoyable because Wally made us feel comfortable and understood what we wanted.
The design is simple, elegant, and timeless. People literally walk across the room to get a closer look and stop me in shops and stores to ask about it. What’s more important everyone agrees it really captures the essence of my personality and style.
Jewelry that’s a personal adventure to create, comes with a story, and has a palpable presence like a living thing and yet is uniquely you. Jewelry that compels people to cross the room and ask you about it. Wally understands that the customer is both the stage and the play for every custom jewelry design she creates in collaboration with her customer.
Whether you have old gemstones, antique cameos, or ancient coins that deserve a new life in new custom settings or need a jewelry piece that will fit an active lifestyle, Wally will work with you to create something special. Take a look at a few treasures from the Custom Jewelry by Tampico.US portfolio at CustomMade.
Looking for “a special venue” for a wonderful stone? Wally created this water jade white gold gents ring to allow as much light as possible to enter the client’s beautiful blue-green water jade cabochon without making it “fussy.” She and her client opted for a bezel setting with open sides instead of a prong setting.
To fully appreciate the amazing images that large Australian Koroit Boulder opals present, Wally had to design “a frame for a wearable work of art” for her customer. This Koroit Boulder opal and emerald pendant is reversible, and the gold-plated sterling silver frame with rivets covered by 1-point green faceted emeralds, though beautiful in itself, allows the centerpiece to shine.
Interested in a revival of a traditional piece through a new interpretation? As something old with a twist, these vintage crystal and gold bridal earrings, featuring 1930s French oval crystals with hand-engraved lilies of the valley bezel-set in 14k white gold, would make a great accessory for a bride.
The banded agate beads in these silver earrings were reclaimed by Wally from a Victorian piece and given new life in a classical design.
Want a senator wrapped around your finger?
This authentic Roman bronze coin silver ring bears the profile of a 2nd Century AD Roman senator. The bezel setting conforms to the contours of the coin and preserves its numismatic value. Wally has a collection of authentic ancient coins available for your own custom ring, or you could provide your own senator.
