Are you looking for a special piece, or do you have jewellery you no longer wear and would like it made in to something new. I can design a piece to remember that special someone or a loved pet that incorporates hair or ashes. Or a piece to celebrate a special birthday, anniversary or even to treat yourself.
Commissions range from £55 upwards depending on:
- The type – pendant, ring, brooch, bangle, earrings
- The design and the size of the piece
- Is the piece made in silver or gold?
- Do you have gold or silver to melt?
- Do you want the piece set with gemstones?
- Do you want the piece engraved?
Designs incorporating hair or ashes are set using resin, this can be clear or coloured and can also include a gemstone.
All commissions start with a free consultation, this can be done face to face or by email. I will then start to draw up some designs for you until you are happy with the design and price.
Once the design has been approved, a non refundable deposit is required. I will then start on making your piece and will keep you updated with photos of the design at each step.
All items are sent to the Edinburgh Assay Office for hallmarking and once I receive the piece back, it will have any gemstones set and a final polish.
The whole process takes between 2-3 weeks however this can be longer depending on the design stage.
The balance is due when you are happy with the finished piece. Click here to view some of my previous commissions. If you would like further information or to discuss a possible commission, please do not hesitate to contact me.
