The Carved Creations Story
In 2008, just months before the global economy plunged into
the darkest years since the Great Depression, Carved Creations ran its first
ads in USA Today. Instantly striking a chord with the heartstrings of America,
the personalized jewelry designs of Carved Creations reminded people that,
although they were losing their jobs, their homes and their life savings, they
would never lose their love for their children, spouses and parents.
Although Carved Creations was launched in 2008, the founders
were no strangers to the world of personalized jewelry. Wes Weaver, President
and CEO, is a seasoned professional with jewelry industry experience reaching
back to the 1980's where he served as a top marketing executive at Artcarved.
While there, he invented the genre of jewelry now known as "Mother's Jewelry." He currently also serves as CEO of John Christian Jewelry. Weaver's business
partner, T.C. Waugh, serves as Creative Director, and has over 10 years of experience
in the jewelry industry. Born into a family of jewelers, Waugh is the 3rd generation in his family to pursue this ancient craft. He currently also serves
as Creative Director for John Christian Jewelers, alongside Wes Weaver.
