It all starts with a chat or an email…
You may be surprised to hear that it needn’t be expensive.
A simple ring or altering an existing piece can cost as little as £100.
A custom piece made from scratch with new or recut stones can cost £1,000 or more, depending on the amount of work involved.
A budget to work to is very helpful: I can then tell you if it is realistic and I will work to that.
I will always give you a quote before I begin work.
What ever you require it will definitely be less expensive than a high street jeweller as there’s no middleman and I don’t have large overheads.
If it’s a small job, possibly a week or two at the most.
For a more complex piece it could take 6 – 8 weeks once the design is agreed and I have all the materials.
As I work alone, my workload does vary though, so … if you have a special occasion coming up it helps if I have enough notice to make sure your piece is ready on time.
No you definitely don’t!
I will take you through a decision process – asking questions along the way – guiding you to a final design.
I will then show or send you pictures of examples and do some sketches if appropriate, working towards your budget if you have one.
