Launch Day

 

Thanks for taking the time to view my site. The launch of the website and the handcrafted jewelry that I have created for both men and women has been an exciting time. Though it has been both physically and mentally challenging, I'm looking forward to the journey.

If you had asked me in late 2013, if I would ever launch a website and add to that, having to do with jewelry, I would have been quick to respond with a NO! Little did

If you had asked me in late 2013, if I would ever launch a website and then told me it had to do specifically with jewelry, I would have been quick to respond with a NO!

Little did I know that the proposal and engagement to my now wife would spark just that, a jewelry website!

I started my search for a wedding band four months before the big day (April 5th, 2014). I've always had an artistic ability and creative mind so I knew I wanted my wedding band to look different than the rest.

I wanted my wedding band to be unique and show an abundance of craftsmanship and creativity. Online searches led to little to no results and large department stores were not an option.

I sketched up several ring designs and made several visits to local jewelers to inquire about having my creation made. I quickly found out that these jewelers were not interested in working with me to create my intricate design.

I eventually gave up and chose to have a replica made of an ancient ring I found online by a jeweler I was referred to. Sadly, I was even unhappy with the outcome of that.

The ring turned out nothing like the picture. Dealing with a salesman rather than a designer was the issue and it showed in the final product. To make matters worse my ring was not even handcrafted! Ugghh!

The whole experience left a bad taste in my mouth. I started wondering how is jewelry created?! I spent hours on end researching that question and I became fascinated by the entire process.

With my creative mind and some fashion sense, I began dreaming of the possibilities. I begin sketching out ring designs that I thought would look good on my wife.

Creating something that starts off as a vision, transferred to paper, then hand carved out of wax and finally into a piece of jewelry is awesome. The ability to create one of a kind designs that seamlessly transition from day to night was rewarding.

I was instantly hooked bringing both art and fashion into one media that could be worn daily.

Dying Flower was my initial ring design, inspired from Spanish deco tile and iron scroll work. Dying Flower set the basis and inspired me to launch a brand based on craftsmanship and handcrafted design that is now Bovar Jewelry.

Creating a brand from scratch with lots of TLC and help from my enduring wife is what makes this journey most exciting. I look forward to creating many more designs and appreciate your support along the way.

If you have any questions or comments, don't hesitate to drop me an email at info@bovarjewelry.com. Look forward to hearing from you.
