Commission a piece of jewellery for yourself or a loved one

Commission Jewellery

If you’ve landed on this page you’re probably interested in commissioning me to make you a special pieces of jewellery. Well, welcome on board and let’s get to it! I’ve made a little form for you to fill out, which will make it much easier for me to help you when we do talk. Don’t worry if you don’t know the answers to all the questions yet, just add as much as you can.

So, how does it work?

Well, it’s really rather simple! We chat, online or in person, depending on where in the world you are. I gather as much information as I can to come up with a design that’s going to be the best it can for you, within your budget and your time scale. Then I create a quote and often also a sketch or two. We tweak until we are both happy and once the project is signed off and the deposit paid, the work can begin. I source stones and metals needed and get to work. When the piece is ready it goes off to hallmarking and once the final payment has been made, it’s finally shipped to (or collected by) you. That’s the process in a nut shell.

To contact me for a commission, use the commission enquiry form below, which will give me a good idea of what you’d like so that I can be prepared when I contact you. Alternatively you can call me on 07969 559 385. I look forward to hearing from you!

Please fill out as much as you can, but don’t worry if you don’t already know everything, we’ll discuss your options and what we can do. Things also often change as we start to talk, so this is a starting point only. I look forward to your enquiry!

What does it actually mean?

Jewellery commission, bespoke jewellery, personalised jewellery or custom jewellery, there are many names for it. Essentially they all mean the same thing; having a piece made for you to your own specification in terms of design, size, materials and colours. But what else does it mean? A client of mine wrote me some feedback after commissioning a pendant for a friend’s 70th birthday, and I think she summed up perfectly what it really means to commission jewellery:

“For me, choosing a piece of jewellery is always a really personal thing. Quite often, what you wear around your neck or in your ears or on your fingers is you wearing a little piece of your heart on the outside. Sometimes, it’s the other way round, in that it also gives you the chance to give a little piece of your heart away. Being able to commission a piece of jewellery allows you express yourself in a unique and wonderfully creative way.”

Isn’t that a lovely way to think of it? The absolute favourite thing about my job is to work to commission, to make a special piece for a client. The hunt for the perfect stone, the strive for a design that really reflects the personality of the recipient, the moment when the piece comes together and the pure joy at lovely feedback from a happy client. Yes, it’s my favourite thing!
