Maria constantly outdoes herself!! I'm always in awe when her pieces arrive. They're stunning, one of a kind, and simply gorgeous! I only wish that I had discovered her fantastic work sooner! Thank you for these future heirlooms pieces and I look to adding many more to my growing collection! 😍😍

Maria is the best saleswoman I've ever dealt with - she coached me through the custom design process, never left me feeling like I didn't know what was happening or like I should be on the same page. She talked to me where I was and helped me to develop the exact piece I wanted for the engagement ring I ordered. Thanks, Maria!

About

Bespoke. Heirloom. Handmade.

Tucked away in a little house in Washington's countryside, The North Way Studio is a small jewelry workshop with a penchant for the homemade.
Established in 2011, the North Way Studio focuses on pieces hand-forged in lush gemstones and gold, along with an ever-changing collection of fine antiques from around the world.

Every piece is carefully created through both modern and traditional techniques, beginning with day-dreams, sketches, and a hoard of natural gemstones and reclaimed, antique diamonds. After being trained as an apprentice under two incredible master goldsmiths in Wisconsin, I enjoy using a wide-variety of skills to forge my pieces. Some creations begin with drawings in my sketchbook and are rendered in CAD with the help of the Casting House back in Chicago. Others begin as tiny hand-carved leaves or soldered joints at the workbench in my home studio. Wax carving is one of my favorite techniques to use in creating heirloom jewels. Whittling away at a big chunk of wax for hours, working with tiny picks and files until a sparrow or twig emerges is just incredible. I like to draw free-hand directly onto the wax, so each piece is organic and unique in its' own sense. These waxes are then cast in precious metals through lost-wax casting, bejeweled in natural stones, engraved, and polished, all with the help of Miss Maple Pecan, Lentil, and our not-so little puppy, Chickpea, the studio's three rather sleepy assistants.

Custom pieces for engagements, weddings or just the everyday are some of my absolute favorites to make. From the antique-inspired to rustic grey diamonds, just about any design can be brought to life with your choice of gemstones and metal. Please contact me for more images of previous creations, or with any drawings or ideas you'd like to work with!

Sincerely,

Maria

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalized orders

I absolutely love making custom pieces--even with using heirloom gemstones! Please message me for any ideas or creations you'd like to make!

Gift wrapping and packaging

Every order comes gift wrapped and ready to give in a petite kraft box with satin ribbon and gilded wax seal.

Sizing details

All handmade pieces come with a free re-sizing, so please don't hesitate to contact me for more information!

Care instructions

For cleaning of all pieces, I do highly recommend just hot soapy water and a toothbrush. Ultrasonics can be a little aggressive for natural gemstones.

For storage, make sure to store items away from other stones, like diamonds, that may scratch or damage a piece. Diamonds can also become scratched, so please store them away from other materials.

If you have any care questions, please just send along a message!

Time Frames for Engagement Rings and Custom Pieces.

Creating engagement rings and custom orders by hand takes a bit of time, usually 3-4 weeks. For more intricate pieces, a longer time period may be needed. Please message me for possibly expedited time frames or overnight shipping options.
