Our Story

Jacob Wosinski (Jake) was first introduced to jewelry making as a boy in his grandfather's workshop. His grandfather, Raymond, made a ring for Jake for his 8th grade graduation, which he still has today. Jake started making his own jewelry at 18. At the age of 20 he started his studies in gemology through the Gemological Institute of America. In 1992, Jake took his first official jewelry making class at the Sawtooth Center in Winston-Salem and he was hooked. Jake knew this was the career path for him. After making jewelry in his own garage for a couple of years, Jake went off to jewelers school in Atlanta. When Raymond wasn't able to make jewelry anymore he passed down all his tools, which Jake still uses today. After graduation in 1995, he started his first paid job as a metalsmith. After over 22 years working for other shops and winning multiple national design awards, Jake has opened his own retail jewelry store. Jake named his store Jacob Raymond in honor of his grandfather, Raymond, for without his influence he would not be a jeweler today. This is how Jacob Raymond Custom Jewelry came to be.
