Making your own jewelry is rewarding and has become a hobby craze for many. However, many jewelry makers get discouraged with the intricate process of making fine jewelry. Fine jewelry is commonly made using heat and smoldering precious metals together and setting expensive gemstones that require expertise and special tools. Because of the high costs of gemstones and precious metals, there isn’t much room for error. This is a job best handled by expert jewelry artisans, but at Master Jewelers we understand your love for jewelry making and want you to be a part of the process every step of the way. Don’t worry you will guide us while we do the heavy lifting that requires expertise.
Here a summary of our four-step process for making your own fine jewelry with Master Jewelers.
Sketch your design
Sketching your jewelry design is the most foundational piece to making any jewelry. Like art, it is the real-life expression of what you are trying to create visually. At, Master Jewelers Indiana we collaborate with you to ensure we bring your ideas to life. We will provide expert design tips that will enhance your design and troubleshoot any future issues you may have with your current design. Knowing what you want is only half the battle, creating it on paper is the other half.
Because we are working with precious metals and expensive gemstones, there isn’t much room for error. Sometimes the design needs altering and rearranged in real lifetime. Master Jewelers creates a wax replica of your piece because they don’t want to hear you say “I would have changed this or this would be better here.” Instead, we want to hear “Let’s change it here and this piece there”. We will only move to the next level once you have signed your stamp of approval on the wax mold.
This is where the magic begins. Using a lost wax mold, the designed jewelry turns into real life jewelry. Cast the foundation of your design with a precious metal of your choice, like yellow gold, rose gold, white gold, platinum, etc. There are multiple steps to this process and this is where our expertise kicks in, but don’t worry we will give you a breakdown step by step.
Finish & Setting
Last, but not least after we have cast your masterpiece, a Master Jewelers expert will polish the piece and set any additional gemstones necessary. This is also where we would add any engraving you have selected. After they do this your jewelry masterpiece is ready to wear.

Spring is here, and it is the time of year to give your home an in-depth cleaning. Spring cleaning is all about cleaning your home after the enclosed winter months. The weather has changed allowing you to comfortably open your home and clear it of the extra dust and clutter.
Spring cleaning isn’t your basic cleaning but more about clean in the deep corners of your closet. One place that gets missed more season than one is your jewelry box.
Too often we forget to clean out our jewelry boxes from the clutter or old pieces we no longer wear. Some of this is because of pieces are broken and hold too much of sentimental value to get rid of them. Or other pieces we haven’t gotten around to fixing. Cleaning your jewelry once a year isn’t enough, and it is important to remove clutter from your box so all the other pieces don’t tarnish over time. Here are 3 ideas for your old jewelry this Spring.
Stop Procrastinating and Bring your jewelry into Repair

Turn your Old Jewelry into Something New
A popular way to reuse your jewelry is to melt your precious metals and custom make a new piece. A great option for all those broken chains or old items you no longer use is to create a custom piece of jewelry. At Master Jewelers, we can custom make any jewelry design you have in mind. You don’t have to get rid of your jewelry to make a more favorable piece. Instead, use the sentimental pieces to make a new piece you will love. Making a new piece will keep the sentiment, but replace it with something you will love to wear.
Sell your precious Metals and earn cash back
Another idea for your less sentimental is to let us buy back your Gold Jewelry. Certified Gold and other precious metal Buyers like Master Jewelers will give you the daily market price per ounce. It is a win-win. You get rid of those meaningless pieces of jewelry and get cash back. Who knew you could earn cash from cleaning.
