When we found a not-so-far-away custom jeweler who not only does award winning jewelry designs but also does it in a thoughtful and worldly manor…we just had to blog about them! KRIKAWA http://www.krikawa.com/index.htm is a small family business run by the husband and wife team of John and Lisa Krikawa. Lisa is a professional jewelry designer and master goldsmith. They specialize in custom wedding bands, engagement rings, and wedding sets. Visionaries in the Sonoran Dessert….ahhhh….we love it!
The cocktail ring below is an example of their award winning work. We know that the the idea of custom wedding sets may seem a bit luxurious…but it is truly practical when you consider the signifigance and meaning of the wedding rings as symbols.
In the KRIKAWA studio you’ll discover a special place where your imagination will be stirred as you collaborate with a team led by award-winning artist and jewelry designer Lisa Krikawa to co-create and customize your own original wedding set, band, or engagement ring.
But truly why we think so highly of the team over at KRIKAWA is their attention to the world.
