Phase 1 - Ideas & Initial Designs!
We always love to chat with you & hear your ideas for your special piece, so if you have in mind a particular design, or if you'd like us to design from scratch and give you plenty of ideas, themes, suggestions, & variations to start with, we're here to help & give you some inspiration! then we can hone-in & focus on your particular style, and come-up with designs for a piece that's unique & special to you, and suits your own individual style.
We can help by showing you examples of previous one-off pieces or new designs, that we can create for you. We like to ask you lots of questions & take the time to get all the details just right for you and to find out what you like & even what you don't!
Phase 2 - Final Designs, Options & Quotes!
We'll then produce design drawings & sketches for you, based on our discussions, with suggestions, variations & ideas for you, to help develop the final design and fine-tune all the details. We can then narrow down to your final designs with details & quotations, based on your individual budget & options for different precious metals, gemstones & diamonds.....
We like to do all this first, to make sure you are completely happy with all the details, final designs & quotes for all the different options of materials, of different golds, gemstones & diamonds, before going ahead and making your piece!...
Phase 3 - Making Your Design!
Only once you are completely happy with all the design details, materials, & quotes, and have decided on any variations for your design, we then after a small deposit is paid, proceed to make your lovely piece for you! Every piece is individually made for every customer here in our own workshop....
Or we can also re-model your own pieces for you, perhaps you have a piece of unworn jewellery with lovely stones but don't like the style? Also we can always melt & re-form your own gold jewellery into a beautiful new piece!
Or maybe you have Granny's diamond ring that needs a completely new style? or just a re-vamp? We're always upfront with what is possible and also what would be really lovely!
If you'd like some help and ideas just contact us anytime - we're
here to help!
Hand-making individual one-off pieces in our workshop
Individually hand-making each piece for individual customers. We love the good old-fashioned way using traditional goldsmith's techniques, at our benches in the workshop, to create your special piece. We can alter details along the way, at this point if you wish, to produce a beautiful unique piece, to suit just you.
Cad-Cam Design process
Or we can also create a unique one-off design for you using Cad-cam, so you can see what your design will look like in 3 dimensional images, before making for you, and so make any alterations, before producing the design in precious metals. We can also 'tweak' the design in cad-cam to alter dimensions/details etc, before producing the finished article.
Your Finished Piece
So if we use cad-cam to design your piece, or traditional hand-making goldsmiths techniques, we then hand-finish the piece, check detailing & then select (conflict-free & fair-trade gemstones and diamonds) which are sourced by us directly from source, and then hand-set your piece with beautiful natural gemstones or (conflict-free) natural diamonds.
