If you have an idea for a piece of jewellery you would like created or want something very unique that is designed and made especially for you this is the place to start.
Step 1 The Story
The most fun and challenging part of this process is deciding what you want. It's my job to help you find out. To start, we discuss the idea behind the piece, the story. Does it have a secret meaning or is it based on a love of a colour,shape, place or a birthstone? Next we decide on metal, stones and budget.
Step 2 Design Phase
I will draw up some designs which I think would work. At this point I will give you an idea of price and time. Each piece can vary depending on complexity and materials used. I can source a selection of stones to suit the design and you can choose which one appeals to you the most. At this point a deposit of 25% is required and work can begin.
Step 3 The Making
When the designs and stones have been decided upon the making process can begin. If there are stones involved I will usually show you the piece before they are set. This is to make sure you are happy with the design progress. The usual turnover time for a handmade piece can range from 3-6 weeks. The finished piece is handed over to you, and the final payment is made.
