Experience a jewellery-design process that’s fun, meaningful, and truly unique to you and your vision
*Updated during the Covid-19 pandemic* - designing custom pieces has always been one of my favorite and most rewarding services to offer, and I am doing my best to evolve the process to meet the needs during this time.
Timelines of custom or made to order pieces can not be guaranteed at this time, however we have been so far able to maintain our regular 4 - 8 week production time.
I have an initial consultation questionnaire on my website to start the process and from there I am happy to meet for a complimentary design consultation via FaceTime or Zoom. If you are in Victoria and would rather meet in person, I am hosting meetings in the back garden outside my studio which allows you to see samples. At this time the studio is closed to the public.
During your consultation we will explore what kind of piece you are looking for, your budget, time frame, and options for design, metal and stones.
The personal aesthetic and vision of my clients is central to my custom work. I welcome you to send photos or sketches of your ideas, engaging with the design process as much as you wish.
Don’t have a clear idea of what you’re looking for? No problem! I’ll help you clarify your vision through asking specific questions, showing examples, and explaining the attributes of different materials, setting styles, textures and finishes.
Any sketches of design concepts we come up with during our consultation can be emailed to you to review and offer more input. When we have come up with a design you are excited about I hand carve a wax mock up, for you to review in pictures and video before we proceed with the design in gold. Occasionally designs are hand fabricated in metal which doesn't afford for the opportunity to see a wax mockup.
Some of the most poignant and sentimental pieces I have created were made by re-using elements from my client's past jewellery. Whether it is making use of unworn gemstones sitting in your jewellery box, or a family heirloom piece that doesn't quite fit your personal style- I am always happy to chat options and ideas!
Just For You
I am now offering a selection of made to order designs on my website! Yours will be individually handmade just for you, so each will be equipped with it's own subtle nuances making it one of a kind. This also allows you the opportunity to contact me in advance if one of these designs is almost perfect for you, but you would like to explore subtle modifications. Things like texture, width, and stone can often be changed.
My prices are dictated by the cost of materials combined with the time that goes into the piece. If you see a design on my website that you love but is more than you are hoping to spend, please feel free to message me to see if I can come up with a more approachable option through modification of stone choices or metal width.
