I've studied Jewelry Design at RISD (BFA), SUNY New Paltz (MFA) and FIT (Rhino/CAD)
I have 15 years of experience working in Designer Costume Jewelry on brands like
TheSak, Jessica Simpson, Vince Camuto, Emporio Armani, KCNY, Guess, Lee Angel, J Crew Crew
My Process: After determining that your project is something I can complete I provide an estimate of the cost to create the 3D model. My rate is $70/hr. I require a 50% deposit to begin work. Once I have a signed agreement- I begin with sketches (if necessary), proceed to measured line drawings with multiple views followed by 3D models. There are approval points at each stage where I show measured 1:1 drawings with multiple views. When the final models are tested, approved and the balance is paid I hand off the files to the client.
To Start / FAQ’s : - Describe the project, providing any sketches or reference images that will help understand the look and feel you are trying to achieve. - The cost of printing is not included in the estimate. I can only get estimates when the files are uploaded to the Shapeways - I include general revisions in the estimate. If there are substantial changes I'll need to re-quote - Please research your idea to see if it will work within the parameters set by Shapeways - Please don't ask me to duplicate the work of other designers - I'm located in NYC - I prefer to work on Jewelry or Hardware.
