I have worked on countless personalized and custom orders over the years. (Also see my Wall of Art page) There is nothing more special than creating a specific design/piece for my customers and clients. Whether their requests are inspired by a favorite symbol, a beloved quote, or a shared memory of a loved one...it is a true honor to be chosen to be the one to manifest it through my work. Here I will share some of those uniquely meaningful pieces of jewelry and the stories behind them.
*Susan Carr wearing her custom-made Apple Grace Designs sterling silver/turquoise necklace of her late son's signature and also a butterfly, which is a symbolism of his eternal life. The necklace was presented to her by her beautiful niece and nephew (shown here) along with their parents.
Justin Carr was a happy, vibrant, and promising young aspiring artist and athlete. At just 16 years of age, his life was cut short on February 22nd, 2013 when he suffered a cardiac arrest during a swimming workout at his school. It was later discovered that he had an undiagnosed heart condition called, Idiopathic Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy. His greatest wish was for World Peace.
