LET'S DESIGN TOGETHER
Here, at Paloma Wilder Studio, we’re driven by a love for detail and a collaborative approach that brings visions alive. I specialize in working with clients to create wearable stories that are kept for life. My process begins with conversation around your ideas and personal style. Using both classic and modern methods, I create a custom plan to make your ring a reality. It all starts with a simple sketch.
IDEAS YOU CAN TOUCH
Design is a curation of ideas, emotions, and materials. At the studio, custom designs start with high quality stones cut by real artists at the top of their craft. Only the most striking stones make the cut. From there I create one of a kind settings from wax or resin before we go to casting. This allows you to experience the design on your finger, against your wrist, or wherever it’s resting place will be.
PHILOSOPHERS AT THE BENCH
Why do we turn to beauty to express ourselves and what does it mean at its core? Beauty extends beyond what we see with our eyes, it can be found in where a piece of art came from and how it came to be.
A diamond holds brilliance objectively but in our studio, environmental ethics and mining practices come first in determining it’s value. As designers, we hold the loupe to the eyes of the world. We are dedicated to shifting the vision to kindness, inclusion, and a better earth for all of us.
After calling the bench home for five years under watchful eye of master’s of the trade, I fully immersed myself into the world of goldsmithing and opened Paloma Wilder Studio. My mini-foundry dream took off in late 2018, complete with a private showroom and beautiful workshop curated with an abundance of hanging plants and greenery.
With a background in sculpture and theatrical fabrication, I’ve found a passion in creating pieces of art that draw on big emotions and are captured through a precious metal that fits in the palm of your hand.
By focusing on my clients and a dedication to the craft, I’ve worked to create a method of collaboration that interweaves the love of visual story-telling with a tradition of fine craftsmanship. My hope is that the pieces we design together will live on through generations.
