Do you want to help us make our designs in sterling silver?

Hello,We are jewelry designers with the desire to re create our existing designs in sterling silver. We have exclusive copyrights of our designs and we need to commission mold, casting, finishing and also developing the new collections. It does not have to be done all in one place and we are open to work with studios outside of Calgary. Please let me know if we could help each other :DThank you so muchLorenaSee More
