For commission jewllery, it helps if you have some idea as to what type of piece you want. Some pictures of different types of jewellery may help to provide an idea of what you are looking for although I must point out that the pieces cannot be copied because of copyright and intellectual property legislation. It is also worth allowing a budget because then we know at the outset what may or may not be possible in terms of materials and design.
I try and keep designs as simple as possible but if you want something more complex, then I need to be sure that any technical challenges that might arise can be overcome. It is usual for several draft designs to be drawn up as I wish to be absolutely sure that you are happy with the final one to avoid wasting valuable time.
You are under no obligation to continue with the project at the design stage although a nominal fee will be charged based upon time spent on the project to date.
Should you wish to proceed, an agreement will be drawn up regarding timescales for construction and costs, of which 35% is required up front to cover initial outlay for materials. To be clear, the process will take a while from concept to finished article depending on the what other work I have to complete and especially if what you have commissioned is technically difficult. This I hope explains why having a bespoke piece of jewellery made can be expensive.
If you see a piece of jewellery on the website and wish to have something similar made to order, this can be a cheaper option than starting from scratch although the final cost will depend on the materials used.
