If you like my designs and you’d like a piece of truly personal jewelry, it's also possible to commission a bespoke jewelry design. From start to finish it will take about 4-6 weeks to complete.
1st week: sketch designs, email, discuss, eventually make changes, final design.
2nd week: start making the wax model, which will be casted in silver or gold.
3rd week: after approval and first payment, the waxmodel will be casted.
4th week: finishing, approval, 2nd payment and shipping/ pickup your unique piece of jewelry.
You will be able to follow each step in the proces. When you live close, you can visit my studio. If that’s not possible, or more convenient to have contact through email I’ll send you pictures.
It’s difficult to give andvanced prices. Prices depend on the metal chosen, use of gemstones, weight of the design, complexity etc. Just send me an email and explain what you're looking for or thinking of. Once I have received your information I will be able to advise some options and let you know whether or not the project is achievable within your deadline/budget, or let you know what the approximate price will be.
GOOD TO KNOW
The starting point may be an existing design I've made before, which we can make your own with some changes, or I can design something completely new and unique. A new design, which will be a custom ‘one of a kind’, will be possible if the aim of the design fits my possibilities and the design itself is completely in my hands. I will translate your ideas into various sketches and from there we'll start.
Because I do all the work myself, I can only take a few custom design orders at a time. Sometimes I will not be able to take your order in the timescale you want me to fit in, because there might be a waiting list. Send your request well on time.
When you send your request, give as much information possible. Things to think about: Who is it for, what do they like, wear and do? What kind of jewelry, for instance a pendant or ring? Your ideas about the design. With or without gemstone(s)? Metals; silver, 14k gold or 18k gold? Ring sizes or any other sizes that are specific. I also need a completion deadline and, if possible, an idea of budget.
Once I have received your information I will be able to advise some options and let you know whether or not the project is achievable within your deadline/budget, or let you know what the approximate price will be. This first initial consultation will be free of charge.
