The creation of your custom piece begins with an appointment..
We are happy to have a chat on the telephone or by email to make an appointment for you to come to the studio.
Our first consultation together will be to discuss your thoughts and desires on the piece of jewellery you would like made, and for us to view any diamonds or gemstones that you may like to use. You may have your own design in mind or be happy for us to create a design with you.
We will also discuss price, asking you for your preferred budget, which will help us especially if we are supplying diamonds or gemstones. In this consultation we cover the difference in diamonds (please refer to diamond text for more information), precious gems, gemstones, the shapes and colours, the difference in the precious metals and the making of that special piece!
We will follow up this consultation by email with an appointment for your second consultation to view stones that we sourced for you and to finalize the design or to provide you with a written quote. For those that require help with visualization, Ewan will sketch or hand carve a wax model.The next step after choosing your gemstones and the design is for Ewan to proceed in the workshop! We usually ask for a 50% deposit as confirmation of your commission and the balance to be paid on collection.
Depending on our workload we usually like 3 to 4 weeks to make your commissioned piece however, if you have a special date we will always try our best to meet it.
Your final appointment is to collect your special piece of jewellery, which we hope exceeds expectations thus making your whole experience with us exciting and memorable.
