Whether you arrive with ideas of your own, pictures of existing jewellery, or a vague concept, we will work with you to flesh out the design to make it something uniquely yours. Comfortably low-tech, we’ll use pencil sketches, wax models, even plasticine doodles to ensure that the finished piece is clearly defined before committing to precious metals.
We’ll generally chat about your needs, whether you have stones of your own or are looking for that special gem. Ideas will be banged around, which will result in gestures in the air, conversational digressions, vague pencil sketches, and some agreement as to what the finished product is going to look like. When once we have reached some sort of consensus, a budget will be discussed and the timing of the next consultation will be set.
Our designer (me) will then use all the tools at his disposal, most fairly primitive, to fine-tune the design, communicating with you at frequent intervals to ensure that the concept is clear. More detailed sketches and often, wax models will be presented for approval, as well as a final cost. This back-and-forth process will continue for as long as necessary to ensure that everyone has a clear picture of the design, the materials, and the cost.
When all the work has been completed, you will be delighted to see a piece of jewellery that matches the picture in your head. If not, well, hopefully it’s way better.
