Commissions : The Process
My specialty is to offer a personalised service, working closely in cooperation with you to design a unique, bespoke piece of jewellery. I have 38 years experience designing and making engagement rings, & wedding jewellery.
During an initial meeting, phone call or email, we will discuss in detail your ideas and the practicalities of the piece. Then with the use of rough sketches, or possibly CAD images, we will settle on the design. At this point you may well require me to source materials for your approval; this is particularly useful & relevant with diamonds and precious stones.
I’ll talk you through the the minefield of buying a diamond, and over subsequent meetings present the materials for your perusal with no obligation.
Once we are completely clear about the design, materials and your budget, I will give you an accurate estimate to produce the piece.
Up to this point the service is usually free of charge. If and when you ask me to proceed I’ll ask for a 50% deposit, at which point I will give you a lead-time based on my workload.
Then, as if by magic, VOILA! I will breath life into your ideas, and a new sparkling piece of jewellery will be born!
Even better, with my low overheads you will find my pricing extremely competitive.
