WHAT I DO
I love to work one-to-one with clients to create bespoke one-off pieces, whether a special gift or something personal to treasure.
Among my commissions I specialize in engagement, wedding and eternity rings, seal and engraved rings, corporate gifts, personalized birth pendants, bracelets, and memorial jewellery. I also offer a remodeling heirloom service as well as pearl and bead restringing and knotting.
The materials I work in include yellow, rose and white gold of all carats, including Fair Trade Gold and silver and precious and semi-precious stones such as sapphires, diamonds, tourmaline's, opals, emeralds and spinel's (to name but a few), which I can source for you. I have good Fairtrade gemstone suppliers.
Please view Gallery below also Wedding Engagement Shop menu for a selection ready made pieces for some examples of work I have made.
HOW IT WORKS
After your initial enquiry I will get in touch via phone or email to discuss your requirements and budget. Its important that you know how much roughly you want to spend as that will influence what carat of gold and what choice of stone is possible. Its important to know that the process is time consuming and can take around 4 to 5 weeks in total. Also it may require a few meetings along the way. I offer remodeling service so if you have any gold or stones you want to recycle I can do this for you.
If you are local then I will usually ask you to meet with me at my studio (or set up a video call if that's not possible) for a free consultation. I ask you to bring any pictures or ideas with you of what you have in mind. I can show you some samples and other ready made pieces as well as an idea of metals choices, shapes and stones. Or If you wish to remodel an existing piece you can show me at the consultation.
We’ll talk through what’s possible, and take any measurements such as ring size and I can do some rough sketches if required.
NEXT STAGE DESIGN & QUOTE
If you are happy to go ahead and trust that I can deliver what you are looking for I ask for a design fee which is taken off final cost. Depending on what’s required I may have sourced a selection of stones for you to view and choose.
I will email drawings and sketches or technical drawing, sometimes a choice of two or three. When we’ve agreed on the design. I can then give you an accurate quote and if you are happy I then ask for 50% cost for the materials costs.
Once the design is agreed I can then start the making process, sending you pictures or video's of the progress at any stage if required. Sometimes I may make a model in silver before going onto make it in gold. When the ring is made and before its ready for setting I may ask you for a final fitting. If the ring is a surprise, which is often the case Its not a problem to have the ring resized later. This would all be included in the cost.
When the ring is finished and you are happy with it I will ask for the final balance minus the design fee on completion.
PAYMENT & TERMS
A non-refundable design fee is payable at the design stage once the budget is agreed, with a further payment for materials usually of 50% of the total, once work has progressed. The remaining balance is payable on completion, when everything is to your satisfaction.
