William Sheahan began designing jewelry by hand in his garage on a homemade work bench in 1984, now with nearly 40 years of experience in design, production, sales and repair of fine custom jewelry. Formerly known as Forward Designs, William Sheahan Designs now has a showroom in the historic Snider Plaza Shopping Area.
As one of the first jewelers in Dallas to use a laser welder, CAD design software, and rapid prototyping machinery, we create jewelry like a large manufacturer, but in a custom and personal way.
With our combined experience and use of technology, our customers notice our difference immediately. Over the years, we have grown because of our happy, satisfied customers. Our team looks forward to continued growth through referrals, word-of-mouth, and e-commerce. We are dedicated to helping you fulfill your fine jewelry dreams.
The William Sheahan Story
After working at a local Dallas jewelry store for two years as a master repairer and stone setter, William knew he could do more. By creating William Sheahan Designs, his goal was to become one of the industry’s leading trade shops. He knew how rare it was to incorporate wax carving, custom jewelry repair, and manufacturing. For many years, William provided a great deal of trade work to the retail industry while based out of the World Trade Center in Dallas.
In the early 1980s, William worked with platinum, before it became popular again for jewelry. Because of his ability and knowledge regarding platinum, he was chosen to work with many high-end retailers such as Tiffany, Fred Joaillier, Cartier, Neiman-Marcus, and more. Over the years, William Sheahan has employed and trained some of the finest jewelers and support team in the jewelry industry.
All over the world, people enjoy the fine jewelry made at William Sheahan Designs.
