bespoke

designed with you, for you

My bespoke service offers you the chance to own something truly individual; a piece of jewellery that has been designed and created for you.

 

Whether it is simply a different colour of diamond that you would like in one of our engagement rings or to commission an eternity ring, I offer expert, friendly advice, so that commissioning a bespoke item of jewellery is an enjoyable experience.

This page shows a snapshot of commissions that I've created for clients in recent years. Many of them have been to celebrate significant occasions and I take delight in hearing all about the story behind each and every piece.

I am passionate about originality in design, therefore only consider commissions that reflect the existing style of my work.  I am happy to create pieces that are not derivative of other's designs/styles of jewellery.

If you'd like to discuss your ideas, please drop me a line and make an appointment to visit our studio and workshop in the heart of Birmingham's Jewellery Quarter. You will get to see where your jewellery will be made, meet my small (but perfectly formed) team.....and enjoy a lovely cup of tea too!

Equally, I can work with you via Zoom, telephone or email if you prefer. Please read on to find out how the commissioning process works.

How does the commissioning process work?

An initial consultation and discussion of design ideas is free of charge. This is when we can talk about different possibilities, your own ideas and the budget you may be working to. Once a final design has been agreed upon, a deposit of 50% will be asked for to secure your commission. I will then also confirm a timescale for the completion of your piece, as this can vary, depending upon the processes involved.

Payment of the balance will be made upon on completion of your item, and you can choose to collect your jewellery from us or receive it securely, via post.

Have your dream piece of jewellery in mind?

I'd love to turn that into a reality for you.
