Uniquely Yours

Whether you are looking to create a new piece of jewelry, transform an existing item, or refashion a family heirloom, Kim Burgan and Darin Kunz of Nine-Eighteen can help you design a one-of-a-kind treasure. “Nine-Eighteen specializes in crafting, bespoke jewels that are as unique as the individuals who wear them,” Burgan said.

For Connie Bawcom, mother of co-editor, Brittany Gaskill, combining two pieces of jewelry and transforming them into a single treasure would not have been possible without the help of Nine-Eighteen’s Burgan and Kunz. Connie had high hopes of blending a set of new pearls from a recent trip to China and a pair of magnificent earrings her husband had gifted to her on a previous occasion. “There were several obstacles to getting the desired result but with Darin’s expert craftsmanship, the earrings have now become my favorite piece of jewelry,” Connie said. Connie’s personable experience at Nine-Eighteen is just one example of the unique experience Burgan and Kunz have provided to their shoppers.

LETS MAKE IT PERSONAL

Nine-Eighteen’s customization process begins with a one-on-one consultation during which style and design concepts are considered. Once a design direction and approximate budget is determined, Burgan and Kunz begin sketching and selecting stunning stones. Next, a series of technical drawings, which detail the final design of your piece, are provided for review.

The custom process is documented fully through photos and drawings, which are presented at the duration of your journey along with a striking personalized piece of jewelry that is truly irreplaceable.

I LIKE IT, BUT I WOULD LOVE IT, IF ONLY I COULD

Often times, people like their jewelry, but Nine-Eighteen wants to make sure that you adore all of your jewels. Through Nine-Eighteen’s Special Ordering Service, any items can be modified to reflect your individual style. “Whether it’s changing the color of the gold, or changing the shape or color of a gemstone, we want to be sure you not only like the piece, but that you’re in love with it,” Kunz said.

EVERYTHING OLD CAN BE NEW AGAIN

Looking to transform a family heirloom into something you will wear and cherish for a lifetime? Reinventing family jewels is one of Nine-Eighteen’s many specialties.

The reinvention process begins with a meeting to asses existing pieces. “We take inventory of the sizes, shapes and quality of the gemstones you have in the existing pieces,” Burgan. “We also discuss your personal taste, initial design ideas and overall budget.” The next stage of your custom journey involves reviewing initial sketch proposals. During this time, Burgan and Kunz will also provide you with an estimate on any scrap value of the gold from your original pieces.

“Once we have settled on a design direction, we will remove the gemstones from your old pieces and if approved, we will sell your gold and apply it your transaction or if you would prefer, we can return the gold to you,” Kunz said. Like all of Burgan and Kunz customizations, your personalized process will be documented through photos and drawings, which will be gifted to you alongside your new family heirloom, which will be cherished for generations to come.

To begin your custom creative journey, contact Kim Burgan and Darin Kunz of Nine-Eighteen at 214-252-1918.

Artist Brenda Bogart is Hanging with Andy Warhol

Dictators And Dics  Brenda Bogart Local Dallas artist Brenda Bogart was asked to have her Dictators and Other Dicks piece in New York City’s Parson’s Romancing True Power: D20 . This show will exemplify how artists and reporters imagine, conceive, and portray our dicktators. Bogart’s Dictators and other Dicks was created in 2012. Always intrigued by the human face, she started on a series of gangsters which then led to her series Dictators and Other Dicks. This quick-witted, tongue and cheek piece has a total of 64 dictators and other current and historic figures such as Hilter, Dick Cheney, Richard Simmons, and Mao. Bogart isn’t glorifying dictators, but rather bringing awareness to the power one person can have to influence the world. This piece is out on loan from the private collection of Linda and David Rogers.

To celebrate this big event, Blue Print will be exclusively offering only 20 limited edition prints of Dictators and Other Dicks. These 40” x 40” prints will be signed and dated by the artist.

Brenda Bogart is represented by Blue Print Gallery and is located at 2707 Fairmount Street. Stop by see artwork by Brenda Bogart and many other talented artists. Tell Them SCOUT Sent you!
