Above, a few recent commissons.

 It all starts with a no strings chat, send me an email to arrange a free virtual consultation (Zoom or Facetime) or phone call to discuss your ideas.

If you are not sure what you want looking at my website and Instagram feed are good ways to get inspiration, I have a collection of beautiful and interesting stones available and if I don't have exactly what you're after I can help you by sourcing your dream gem.

Once the design is agreed I will ask for a deposit and agree a payment plan, I'll start work and send regular updates, the piece will be sent to you after the final payment has been made.

Above - a past commission, start to finish, my client wanted a watermelon tourmaline ring, for her the stone was the most important part of the piece. Once I had sourced her a gem that she loved I drew up the sketches. We agreed the design and the ring was made.

Below - a commission in progress, this Swiss blue topaz was spotted by my client on Facebook, she got in touch and reserved the stone, I have made some sketches and we are in the process of agreeing the design.

Lead times are 4-6 weeks and can be longer at busy times or depending on the work involved so please bear that in mind, if you need a piece for a specific date get in touch as early as possible. I will always do my best to get your jewellery made for you as quickly as I can.
