It is the uniqueness of a commission piece that makes it an exciting project. Working with a client on the design ensures an original piece of jewellery that is an expression of the client and myself. The customer’s input can vary from providing a theme, idea, or actual object and then giving me “free rein” – with updates during the process – to consultations resulting in a complete detailed design before any work begins.
I generally work with silver, gold and of course, resin, but am open to incorporating other materials. The price would depend on choice of materials, specifics of design and if the due date is less than 4 weeks. Normal time of delivery is 4 – 8 weeks.
A 40% deposit is required to start the work. If the cost of a piece is more than $1500, a payment plan with a credit card can be set up.
There is a wave encircling the band as the couple does a lot of under water diving. In fact, he proposed to her with the ring in an airtight glass container deep under the ocean surface.
Traveling both sea and land are alluded to by the movement and texture of the piece. The shapes and materials reflect the preciousness of 50 years together along with their two children. The back of the pendant is engraved with 4 significant dates.
The customer had previously purchased the Dessin bracelet and wanted a ring of a similar design to incorporate/repurpose a heritage diamond from a 90 year old engagement ring belonging to a family member.
