Commissioning a piece of jewellery can be a fantastic way to create a significant gift or a personal memento that is layered with meaning and tailored to suit the individual. The process, and the piece, can be as simple or as complex as you’d like. As each piece of jewellery is handmade it’s possible to customize shape, colour, content, size, length, metals, stones and motifs.
There are several pieces in the shop which are listed as being made to order and customisations are available during the ordering process.
These personalised items are not any more expensive than their counterparts that are already made, but please allow a couple of weeks for the pieces to be made and delivered. I'm always happy to answer queries around lettering, colourways, motifs and so on, so please do get in touch
As well as the listed made to order pieces it is generally possible to either adapt an existing piece or work from elements of jewellery shown in the slideshow galleries. The best route is to email me outlining what youre interested in and I can get back with how it might work, a guideline price and a timeline. You can email me here
A slightly more complex commissioning process involves creating a piece (or pieces) of jewellery based on ideas, themes or materials that are more specifically personal .The result is a completely unique and meaningful piece of jewellery, but it will be a lengthier and possibly costlier process.
If you are interested in commissioning this type of piece please email me with as many of your ideas and details ( such as when you need it by) as possible so I can get a sense of what you have in mind.
I have also in the past worked on collections of work commissioned by organisations. This has included making a range of jewellery to complement the work of a featured painter, drawing on their colours and themes, for the Royal Academy summer show. For the Museums, Galleries and Archives commission I worked with Leach Potteryand the work was developed as a response to both the work of Bernard leach and also the role the studio played. THis type of responsive commssion can also involve creating a unique range which is particular to the mood and feel of the hotel or gallery commissioning, often drawing on their locale.
