“Jewelry comes to life when it is worn.” ~ Shaesby Scott

Wearing a piece of jewelry is one thing, but wearing a one-of-a-kind piece of jewelry that was customized and handcrafted especially for the wearer, is an entirely different experience. That’s the kind of experience Shaesby wants brides to have on their wedding day and long after. 

Founded in 2001, Shaesby is a fine jewelry company based in Austin, Texas. Using ethically sourced gemstones, no-conflict diamonds, and 100% recycled precious metals, Shaesby artisans create wearable sculptures that are as unique as the person donning them.

In this interview, designer and founder Shaesby Scott shares his inspiration, jewelry trends, and what goes into creating a piece of custom jewelry for the bride.

Is there anything you'd like clients to know before they come to Shaesby?

During busy times of the year, it can take up to 4 weeks to book an initial consultation. After the initial consultation, the process can take up to 6 weeks. We encourage clients to book early and bring their inspiration and ideas to the table. We gladly work with heirloom diamonds, which is a beautiful way to add a meaningful element to the design.
