Custom Jewelry – The Perfect Gift for that Someone who has Everything

35Have you ever dreaded an upcoming birthday, holiday, or celebration because you cannot think of what to buy your friend or loved one – that someone in your life that has everything? Custom jewelry created by Steamboat Springs artist Sarah Buckles-Larner can be a unique, one of a kind, lasting gift.

Custom jewelry designs are offered in a wide variety of styles and forms, ranging from hand-set precious stones to personalized mountain jewelry, from story rings to western belt buckles. Sarah’s has been designing custom jewelry for over 30 years and has clients all over the world.

A western flair prevails with her original pieces, which you will see with her signature twisted rope or wire trimming the rim of rings, bracelets, pendants, or in her unique elk tooth jewelry. But truly talented, this artist’s eye for design allows for any style and she likes to work with a client to create custom jewelry that reflects their unique vision, interests, or personal story.

One of Sarah Buckles-Larner’s favorite pieces is a sterling silver cuff bracelet that a woman had custom made depicting the skyline of New York City. This piece of custom jewelry was designed where the birthstones of the customer’s grandchildren would be hand set above the skyline of the Big Apple.

Another favorite of Sarah’s is a two toned saddle ring that was custom designed. Delicately crafted, this ring details the side of a saddle with a precious family amethyst heirloom placed at the center. Two-toned jewelry is another well known trait of Sarah’s work, and it is usually made with sterling silver and 14 or 18 karat gold.

Mountain jewelry is one of the most popular types or styles of custom jewelry that Sarah makes. Made using the gentle and unique lost wax method, Sarah hand carves the outline of a specific mountain peak and molds it into stunning jewelry. Mountain jewelry comes as pendants, rings, belt buckles, cuff links, and more. One of her customers wakes up every morning to have coffee and view the bountiful peaks of Rabbit Ears Range, so Sarah designed a ring to commemorate this ritual.

Commemorate Your Memories

Our talented artist is able to take your precious memory or remarkable event and place it onto custom jewelry, so that you, your friend, or your loved one can cherish it always.
