Waylon Rhoads' Profile

About

Waylon Rhoads Jewelry is a small custom jewelry shop located in the heart of downtown Bend, Oregon. It is owned and operated by jewelry designer and goldsmith, Waylon Rhoads.

Jewelry is one of the most sentimental possessions that individuals have. With so much jewelry being manufactured in a mass production fashion, a certain amount of the intimacy is lost. I want to bring the romance back in jewelry, by hand crafting every single item I make, with the intent of making it for the person who is going to wear it.

There is a much different mentality that goes into making a one of a kind piece. I like to imagine how the person receiving the gift would react once they see it.

I strive to satisfy. I create, not only to satisfy my own personal wants and goals, but to push the envelope of the kind of jewelry can be made. I want to be as far away from the cookie cutter fashion and make jewelry that is new, different, and refreshing. Aside from working with the public, I also strive to help out other jewelry store owners. I have over 10 years of retail jewelry experience, mostly working in high volume, high quality stores. I've learned many things about what it takes for a retail jewelry store to succeed, and the biggest difference between the successes and the failures, is the ability to provide jewelry services to the customer.

I hope that you enjoy the little hand made treasures that are made and the ones that will be made. Follow me on Facebook and visit the website www.rhoadsjewelry.com
