"I found John Vardis after doing extensive research both online and on local (and not so local) jewelers. I had a very specific, yet not very complicated, design in mind that I wanted to create as a gift. It was a very important project for me as I wanted to be able to give something special and memorable to my sister after her beloved dog passed away. I wanted to create a small, rose gold dog bone pendant- engraved. I wanted the bone to look natural, rounded and 3 dimensional, not a typical flat, cartoonish looking dog bone charm that I kept coming across online. I wanted a delicate looking font, and wanted the chain to have rings at different lengths so she could wear it long or short. Every jeweler I spoke with quoted me double and even triple what John Vardis quoted me, mentioning that it becomes more expensive as you customize a piece more. Well that was all well and good and I was almost willing to pay much higher, but every time I tried to explain exactly what I wanted, they would tell me it wasn't possible, and would offer a few other ideas in place of my own. I didn't want to compromise and could'nt understand why no one was understanding my simple design. Finally, I found John Vardis at Alithea design...he not only said, "Yes, that's no problem", to EVERY detail I described, but his final product was so much more beautiful and perfectly captured than I could have imagined, and the turnaround time was only a few weeks. I couldn't believe how easy John made the process, after getting hit with so many roadblocks previously. I'm so glad to have found such a professional and talented designer like John, and I know that whatever project I might have in the future, he will be my guy. It honestly could not have been a more pleasant experience with John Vardis. He's the best at what he does and I can't wait to work him again on whatever new project I dream up in the future."
