MY PROCESS

All jewelry is designed, sculpted, carved, shaped, crocheted and wire-wrapped in my studio in Los Angeles. I create most of my pendants and charms in precious metal clay (ancient bronze is my favorite) and fire the pieces up to 1750 degrees in my studio kiln.

CUSTOM RINGS & MORE

I recently started working with gold and platinum as well as using precious and semi-precious gemstones. I sculpt wedding bands and signet rings using the lost-wax technique. The metal casting is done locally in downtown LA or with Hoover & Strong in Virginia. Below are some of my recent designs. It would be a privilege to help create a cherished piece of jewelry for you; a wedding band, an engagement ring or perhaps a family story ring (where we incorporate gemstones from collected family heirlooms). Contact me at hillary@hillaryheydle.com to discuss the possibilities.


BRINGING NEW LIFE TO OLD JEWELS 

Let me help you rework any old, broken or ill-fitting piece of jewelry by turning it into something meaningful and custom fit. Together we can create new heirlooms or modernize older styled jewels.
