Custom Jewellery

There is something so special about wearing a piece of jewellery that you know was handmade just for you. If you are looking to have your very own custom piece of jewellery made by a skilled and experienced craftsman, you have come to the right place. Sasha Shkolnik, owner and goldsmith at Juvelisto, has over 20 years experience in making beautiful works of wearable art.

What makes Juvelisto different from other jewellery stores you ask? Well Juvelisto is a fun, beautiful, inspiring and welcoming space offering a totally different experience than that of intimidating commercial and commission based jewellery stores.  When working one on one with Sasha to design your custom piece, she will personally guide you through the entire process from start to finish, listening to your needs and desires, and encouraging your involvement in the design process. Sasha’s approach to creating custom designs ensures that no details are overlooked resulting in the ideal custom piece that you will treasure and admire everyday that you wear it.

Family Rings

Symbolism and sentiment are two of our favourite sources of inspirations for jewellery design here at Juvelisto, it is the sentimental jewellery with deeper symbolism that we cherish the most. For most of us, our families are the most important aspect of our lives and wonderful way to honour our closest family members is by creating a family ring. Our skilled staff at Juvelisto would love to help you personalize a family ring design that represents you and creates a home for the birthstones of each of your loved ones.

Wedding rings

Wedding rings are one of the first and most important investments you and your partner will make together. Your wedding rings are a reflection of your individual personalities and an expression of who you are as a couple. Having your wedding rings custom made at Juvelisto is the perfect way to ensure that your rings represent your unique love, individual style and are made with excellent craftsmanship to last you a lifetime.

Canadian Diamonds

Canada is known for many wonderful things but it is our Diamonds that have captured the attention of consumers worldwide. Since the publication of conflict diamonds, many have chosen Canadian diamonds due to the ethical practices of diamond mining in Canada. Not only are Canadian diamonds ethically mined, each Diamond is laser inscribed with a serial number and special symbol to verify its origin. A certificate of authenticity accompanies your Canadian Diamond with detailed specifications of your particular stone. Canadian diamonds are also known for their exceptional quality and beauty. At Juvelisto we have a wide selection of Canadian Diamonds available to us upon request, so if you are interested in having a Canadian Diamond set into your next custom piece of jewellery, come to us and we will find you the perfect gem that fits your needs and your budget.

Repairs

A common misconception is that jewellery is invincible but unfortunately it is not. Jewellery pieces are like vehicles, it doesn’t matter if they were made by Toyota or Mercedes, they all require maintenance, repair and detailing to ensure they are looking and operating at the highest standard. At Juvelisto we offer a wide range of jewellery repair and maintenance services. Please bring your valued jewellery items in to us so we can inspect and clean them for you, free of charge. At this time we can inform you of necessary repairs you may need to prevent a larger and more expensive problem. If you have jewellery that is noticeably damaged or broken please let us help you restore your jewellery to its original state. Every repair is different from the next so prices vary, we are about to estimate the cost of your repair upon inspection.

Beads and Pearls stringing

Some of our favourite pieces of jewellery are a simple strand of pearls or an ornately beaded necklace. When wearing our favorite beaded pieces day in and day out, over time the friction can cause the chord that the beads are strung on, to wear out. At Juvelisto, our experienced staff would be happy to professionally re-string your beads so you can go back to wearing your special beaded pieces for years to come. In the even that you may have lost some beads, we would be happy to find the most similar replacement beads and/or re-configure the design with new beads so the item is the correct length.

When it comes to re-stringing your favorite strand of pearls, we use a special technique that is different from regular bead re-stringing. Since these gems of the sea are quite soft and susceptible to abrasion, we use a special silk cord that we knot in between each pearl to ensure that the pearls do not rub against each other.

Insurance Replacement

In the unfortunate event that you have had your precious jewellery lost or stolen but were fortunate enough to have your jewellery insured, at Juvelisto we are able to work with you and your insurance company to re-create the piece(s) you lost. In these situations it is necessary for you to call your insurance company and make a formal claim. Your insurance company will need to approve the claim and  give you a maximum budget to work with. Make sure to obtain a claim number and contact information for your insurance adjuster so that we can also correspond with the insurance agent in regards to your claim.

Diamond Retipping

When wearing our favourite rings every day for many years the daily abrasion on the metal  can cause the claws holding your gemstones in place to wear down. If these claws wear down too far or break off, you run the imminent risk of your precious stones falling out.  Luckily, our experienced goldsmiths at Juvelisto are skilled at re-tipping these claws to keep your stones safe for many more years to come.  Having your claws re-tipped is a small price to pay in comparison to the replacement of a lost gem.

Jewellery Cleaning, Inspections

Whether you purchased your jewellery from us or not, you are more than welcome to have it inspected and cleaned in our ultrasonic. This service is free. If you need your jewellery polished, many times we can do this while you wait.

Redesign Your Old Jewellery

One thing we pride ourselves about at Juvelisto is our ability to transform your old jewellery into something new. If you have gold jewellery that you don’t wear anymore or holds sentimental value but just isn’t your style, take it to us and we will customize a design that is built around your gemstones and gold but suits your taste.

Ring Sizing

Nothing is worse than having a piece of jewellery you absolutely love but doesn’t fit anymore. At Juvelisto we can help you out with that problem. Whether your ring, necklace or bracelet is too big or too small we can size it to perfectly fit you. Every alteration of a jewellery item is different from the next so prices vary, we are about to estimate the cost of your adjustment upon inspection.

Purchase Policies

Exchanges & Refunds:     Like most small businesses, Juvelisto does not issue refunds. If your jewellery item is defective or was damaged during the shipping process, please send the item back for repair and the item will be shipped back to you as soon as it has been fixed. If it is a personal taste issue, we would gladly exchange for another piece or store credit within seven (7) days from when you received the jewellery. Return shipping is at the expense of the buyer.

Sasha Shkolnik

Sasha first studied at the State Art School in the Ukraine where she learned many different forms of art. She designed theatrical props, painted with oil and moved into making ceramics for a few years just to find herself creating jewellery out of clay and porcelain. It was then she knew that in order to express her talent to the best of her abilities she needs to learn metal arts.  Upon finding her new home in Canada it was then that she realized that she must pursue her jewellery passion. Sasha went back to school to study Jewellery Art and Design and continued on that path for nearly twenty years working as a professional goldsmith for some of the most renown jewellers in Vancouver, BC.

In 2008, Sasha opened a home based studio in Richmond, B.C. where she began designing and creating custom pieces for private clients all the while still working full time for two other jewellery companies. Over the years the number of clientele had grown, so in 2011 Sasha decided to venture out on her own and open a retail jewellery store and design studio in a beautiful historical part of Richmond, B.C. An occasional weekend walk in Steveston Village resulted in spotting a lovely storefront available for lease and Sasha had an instant vision of her future business.  In March 2011 Sasha’s company, Juvelisto Design, opened the doors for the first time.  Immediately Juvelisto created interest among the locals and visitors of Steveston. Since its opening, Juvelisto has been very successful because it has developed a reputation of being known for its extraordinary level of craftsmanship and customer service.

Story

What does Juvelisto mean? It is the Esperanto word for a Jeweller. Esperanto was created to be a universal language, in the same manner that the creation of jewellery is universally admired.

We all relate to our jewellery in a certain way. Some love the sparkle of their diamonds, some appreciate attractiveness of extraordinary designs, some are fascinated by the power of natural coloured gemstones, others hold jewellery dear because of its sentiment but for most of us our jewels are an expression of our personality and taste. When Sasha designs jewellery for a client, she feels as though she has the power of being a translator of people’s feelings, a magician to create someone’s vision in a piece of metal and a psychic who’s trying to unlock their personalities and free their desires.  Jewellery speaks but only one language and its that of beauty.

Sasha finds beauty in all of the things surrounding her and it’s her primary source of inspiration.  We often don’t notice or don’t pay attention to the little details in our everyday life that deserve awe and admiration. Sasha’s moments of happiness are when she is able to spot and show this beauty to others.

At Juvelisto where Sasha designs and creates all her jewellery, she also displays a number of different collections of her work from fine gold and gemstones to contemporary silver and bronze pieces. Sasha also has an organic line of nature based pieces also created in silver and bronze. All of her collections are constantly changing and growing because most of her pieces are one of a kind with the new designs being added all the time.

Design Process

Sasha designs all her work in her studio in Steveston, B.C.  When creating a custom piece, Sasha will meet with you to discuss your ideas and will offer a number of proposed design ideas to you based on your conversation. Your participation in the design process is encouraged and your own ideas are valued.

After the design is chosen, Sasha will quote you on the approximate overall cost of the proposed piece based on the projected labour, materials and services required to build your one of a kind jewellery item. Sasha uses many different methods of jewellery making but most commonly uses wax carving to create your custom piece. Once the design and cost is approved Sasha will create the wax model of your design and encourages customers to view the wax model prior to having it cast into the metal of choice. The wax model is then casted in gold or silver and finished in the Juvelisto workshop with the highest attention paid to every little detail to ensure it is perfect just for you.

Shop

Juvelisto Design opened in Steveston, B.C. in March of 2011 and has been a destination shop ever since. It is a charming gallery where you will find creative and one-of -a-kind jewellery made by over 25 local, national and international jewellery artists. The gallery owner, Sasha Shkolnik, also presents her own gold, silver and bronze collections in store. The variety of styles, techniques and jewellery media at Juvelisto is unlimited and you can truly find something for everyone at Juvelisto. This is the place for the locals of Steveston to get unique gifts for any occasion or treat themselves to something very special – all the while supporting their local economy. Steveston draws many visitors from all over the world and they so often chose Juvelisto for that unique, local, handmade souvenir. Juvelisto offers a wonderful jewellery shopping experience with friendly and experienced staff that are willing to assist you in any way and tell you about the artist who created your chosen piece, their technique and the materials they used!

One thing that really sets Juvelisto apart from other jewellery stores is our onsite workshop that allows our clients to see the artists at work and many of the jewellery items in our showcases are made in house by Sasha or our other silversmiths Leanne Guthrie and Nicolina Sebok.

Nuts & Pods

Nuts and pods collection was inspired by idea of a treasure hidden inside of a pod, an object of beauty and  affection nestled  in between of two halves of a shell. Just like in everyday life when we don’t always see precious things right away,  they stay humble until finally discovered and admired. Created after the  objects found  in nature, this rustic organic line features  very recognizable and familiar pods as well as some exotic kinds. Made in silver or bronze they vary from looking  “raw ”in white unfinished silver with polished highlights to different shades of patina over bronze. Each piece is set with different kinds of beads, pearls or gemstones.

Barnacles

Many of us had a painful experience brushing over barnacles. Their fascinating shapes inspired ever changing and expanding collections in both bronze and silver. These  organically looking  necklaces, rings and earrings never stop to surprise with its unpredictable texture and shape.

"When Sasha put the box down in front of me the moment I had hoped for happened – I felt a wave of emotion, disbelief that this was MY ring, it sparkled, it danced, it sang to me! Exactly the reaction I was hoping to get. Anything else and the project would have been a mistake. Clearly she nailed it! I gave her a big hug and thanked her for capturing something in this new piece of jewellery that is more than the thing – a symbol of my family, treasured memories, and hope for the future as I continue moving forward. This entire process was very therapeutic, and one more step to finding closure. Working with Sasha was so easy, just as her website stated. I highly recommend to anyone who is thinking about making something new from old jewellery to visit Juvelisto on Moncton Street in Steveston. Who knows, you might just end up with a new family heirloom like I did!"Janice

“Oh my god Sasha! The rings take our breath away. Please know that we will be bragging all about you and your beautiful work to anyone who will listen. As you probably know the rings are an integral part to the commitment of marriage and your designs have fulfilled our dreams and then some. Thank you so very much!" Lisa and Gwen

The Holidays are quickly approaching, bringing families closer together. Sweet times to spend with each other, as well as reflect on the loved ones that no longer here. We keep them with us in our soul, memories and in memorial jewellery.
This is a silver ashes urn I made recently for a son in tribute to the mother he recently lost.
