It's important you find the right jeweller to make your special pieces. Take a look at some of the commissions I've made according to my client's wishes and if you like what you see then please get in touch to instruct your own.
CHECKERBOARD AMETHYST SILVER & 9CT GOLD RING
As this was a special 40th birthday present from father to daughter, we choose a checkerboard cut Amethyst, (as opposed to the more mainstream cuts).
To provide light for the Amethyst the underside of the gem was opened up in the shape of a heart, which was nicely incorporated within the personalised hand-stamped message from her dad.
To accentuate the gemstone a 9ct gold surround was added, providing an extra lift to the focal point of this ring.
We didn't know the ring size, so decided to go with an 'open ring' so it could be adjusted to fit.
If you have a birthday coming up why not have a unique piece handmade just for you?
9CT GOLD RING WITH WHITE TOPAZ PEAR SHAPED GEM
Beautifully delicate 9ct gold ring with a pear shaped white Topaz, which was custom made according to my clients brief.
I must admit, pear shaped gemstones are not the easiest for me to set, but I do love a challenge!
My client loves this ring as she played a big role in choosing the design and it was exactly what she envisaged.
Do you deserve a treat? Why not spoil yourself with a special piece of handmade jewellery?
SILVER SYN. OPAL BANGLE
My client wanted a bangle that could be interchangeable in the future.
Using her birthstone, my client handpicked the oval syn. Opal direct from my supplier so she had the exact stone she wanted, and we then collaborated on the design together.
This design will enable my client to commission different crystal centerpieces so they can be changed, depending on what she chooses to wear that day.
I'm a firm believer that quality jewellery is an investment and love making pieces my clients can adapt.
Would you like an interchangeable piece of jewellery? If so, please contact me.
SILVER COUPLE'S EMBRACE PENDANT
Loved making this challenging solid silver commission, which was handmade using just a photo as a guide.
I was asked to replicate a fashion pendant my client owned, but was unable to wear after a few weeks, as the plating had worn off.
Do you have a piece of costume jewellery that you love but is turning your skin green? then I can help recreate it using silver or gold.
SOLID SILVER MOON & AQUAMARINE BANGLE
This was a birthday surprise for a very spiritual client, who absolutely loves the moon and all things cosmic.
Her husband asked for a moon bangle and together we decided to include an Aquamarine, which is her birthstone.
Covert strategies were used to obtain her exact wrist size, so the Aquamarine nestled within the crescent of the moon (once it had been custom fitted).
Would you like a quality piece of jewellery that can be worn all the time whether your cooking, cleaning or gardening? If so, please get in touch.
SILVER & GOLD PIGLET CHARM BRACELET
This 3D piggy charm was handmade for a special young lady, who absolutely loves pigs!
To enhance the piglet's features 9ct recycled gold was used.
The bracelet was shortened (and the extra links provided) so they can be re-added as she grows older.
If you'd like a bespoke piece made, please let me know.
If you'd like a meaningful piece made, please let me know.
CHUNKY, DISTRESSED GENTS BAND RING
I was asked to make a wide silver band ring that didn't look new!
The hammered effect added age, I then down-polished using abrasive buff wheels to give a satin finish.
Not everyone likes new jewellery to bling - as we're unique individuals with different styles and tastes.
How do you prefer you jewellery to look, bling or aged? I cater for all, so please just ask.
9CT GOLD SOLID HORN PENDANT
This was a present for a close friend who's helped me. Her birthday was coming up and she'd mentioned seeing a gold plated horn pendant that she liked.
The problem with gold vermeil jewellery is that the plating soon wears off, so I set about making a quality 9ct solid gold pendant that will last!
If you've seen a piece of costume jewellery that you want made using a precious metal of your choice, I can help.
GOLD & SILVER HEART DROP EARRINGS
My client wanted something unique for a Valentines present and liked a pair of earrings I had already made, so we adapted the design.
Adding slightly smaller 9ct gold hearts to the base added extra sparkle and finished this piece off beautifully.
If you've seen a piece of jewellery that you like but want to add your own twist, then I'm here to help.
9CT SOLID GOLD CROSS WITH FIRE OPAL
My brief was to make a heavy simple gold cross using my client's birthstone.
Rather than inlay the Fire Opal gemstone, I decided to mount it in a modern raised rub-over setting to give it the platform to really stand out.
I really enjoyed making this piece as it marked a significant milestone in my client's personal journey and was a gift to reward himself of his achievements.
If you'd like to reward yourself or a loved one, why not have a piece handmade to mark any special occasion?
GENTS SILVER BAND RING WITH GOLD SPHERES
My brief was to match a previous concept that was previously commissioned (which included 5 x slim band rings for 5 sisters).
The 9ct gold spheres represented the 5 siblings who instructed this piece for a very close family friend of theirs.
As this was for a man the design was kept very similar to the sister rings, but the handmade band much thicker.
Would you like matching jewellery for you and your friends or a loved one? Please get in touch.
SILVER WAVE DESIGN RING WITH A SYN. AQUA SPINEL
I was asked to replicate a base metal fashion ring using silver.
My client likes chunky jewellery so this ring was made heavier than the original with a larger gemstone.
It was enjoyable copying my client's old ring, whilst adding a twist, which she loved.
If you have a piece of costume jewellery that you love, but has lost it's plating, why not have it re-created using a precious metal of your choice?
RAW AMETHYST PENDANT & SILVER CHOKER NECKLET
My client first chose the crystal she was drawn to and asked me to make a pendant, giving me freedom to encase the crystal.
Next to decide was the shape of the choker necklet. Although it was more expensive, my client chose an oval shape as it's a investment piece that is striking whether worn alone or with a pendant adorned.
This crystal's shape governed this organic design and the silver was kept minimal so the crystal could hold the limelight.
Once I 'd finished and polished, it was left in the sunlight to charge, and wow, the crystal was transformed and re-energised, the colouring really came into its own!
Do you love raw crystals? What's your favourite? If you'd you like a special piece enquire.
STERLING SILVER SPINNER RING
My client asked me to make a ring for her girlfriend, and because the ring size was known, we decided to go with a spinner ring.
The design was a joint effort following suggestions for the design of the spinning ring elements.
Although the deadline was tight my client gave the ring on Valentines day and was told it went down a treat.
Do you like fiddling with your jewellery, then a spinner ring would be perfect for you!
GOLD & SILVER BANGLE
My client bought one of my rings, so this bangle was made to match her ring.
The 9ct gold used was recycled and the bangle was made in a petite size so it was a comfortable snug fit on my clients wrist (without clanging during daily wear).
My client is really happy with her matching ring & bangle and never takes them off!
Do you live in your jewellery? I ensure all my pieces last the test of time so are perfect for everyday wear. Please let me know if you would like a piece custom made.
PERSONALISED SILVER CHARM BRACELET
This commission involved 12 clients, all wanting to collaborate for their friend's surprise 40th birthday present.
The initials represents her children, the paw print her dog, and the oval garnet gemstone her birthstone.
As the charms were heavy, we decided to hang them on a chunky silver cable chain and used a strong feature clasp to finish.
This went down a treat and the recipient cried tears of joy when she opened her thoughtful present from her chums!
If charm bracelets are your thing, rather than buy mass-produced, why don't you have one custom-made?
4 x STERLING SILVER SOLID BANGLES
My client loves wearing bangles so commissioned me to make a replica of her own, as presents for her 4 grandchildren.
I had to be very careful to ensure I handmade each bangle to the exact measurements that was given.
My client was over the moon with them, as were her lucky grandkids.
Do you want multiple pieces made? I can do that for you.
QUIRKY STERLING SILVER KISS PENDANT
I was asked to commission a chunky solid sterling silver kiss pendant.
My brief was very clear; "Do not make it perfectly proportioned, I want it to be quirky!"
These instructions tested me as I am a stickler for perfection. However, I was pleased with the end result and so was my client.
How do you prefer jewellery, perfectly formed or quirky? I cater for all.
TIGERS EYE AND SILVER HOOP PENDANT
My client liked the Tigers Eye hoop drop earrings in my stock collection (Equilibrium) and wanted a matching pendant for her friends birthday.
I used chunkier silver for the pendant but kept in keeping with the earrings, they were not an exact replica, but complemented each other beautifully.
My clients friend was delighted with her earring and pendant set.
If you've seen an item in my shop and would like an accompanying piece to match, please get in touch.
SILVER BONE CHARM
My brief was to create a silver bone charm for my client's girlfriends Pandora charm bracelet.
As it was to hang on a bracelet I created a 3D solid bone to ensure it looked the same from the back & front.
As this was for a Pandora bracelet the jump ring was styled accordingly so it would fit.
My client was delighted, as was his girlfriend with this new addition to her existing charm bracelet.
Do you have a charm bracelet and would like a custom charm added? All you need to do is let me know.
MALACHITE CRYSTAL IN A PERSONALISED SILVER MOUNT
I was given a free reign on this commission. My instructions were to use silver and that the recipient loved the colour green.
This gave me the freedom to source the right crystal.
My client asked if I could incorporate his girlfriends initial "A" into the design, which I did.
To provide a little sparkle I added a Cubic Ziconia into the design of the initial.
If you want your initial incorporated in a design, this can be done.
STERLING SILVER DOUBLE HOOP DROP EARRINGS
My client had seen a pair of these in my stock collection, but commissioned me to make a smaller version.
Because my pieces are handmade each and every item is unique and can be re-made according to my clients instructions.
I enjoy customising my pieces as it enables my clients to add their own twist and have the piece of jewellery they really want.
If you've seen a piece in my shop but want it adapted or altered, please let me know.
CITRINE AND SILVER PENDANT
My client choose a Citrine crystal that she was drawn to and commissioned a pendant using silver.
I handmade triangular silver wire and snugly wrapped the crystal within.
As with all my crystal jewellery, it was cleansed, charged and lovingly blessed before being collected.
If you would like to choose a crystal from my selection or suppliers, please get touch.
AMETHYST & CUBIC ZIRCONIA SOLID SILVER BANGLE
This was a birthday gift for a very close friend.
Her birthstone was Amethyst so I incorporated this gemstone within the silver bangle and used Cubic Zirconias to compliment it.
I designed this bangle so the gemstones were mounted in a raised setting to stand out.
If you would like a piece made using your birthstone, please contact me.
SOLID SILVER HEART PENDANT AND EARRINGS
I was commissioned to make a delicate silver heart pendant for a 40th birthday present.
I designed an open silver heart so it was delicate, as per the brief, and used triangle shaped silver so the light would reflect upon the angles.
As a surprise, I also made a pair of silver heart earrings to accompany the pendant, and stayed within the original budget set by the client.
If you enjoy wearing matching jewellery, why not have a unique set made just for you?
9CT GOLD AND SILVER OPEN RING
This was handmade for an 18th birthday.
As it was a special birthday I incorporated 9ct solid gold balls using recycled gold and surrounded them in silver rings as a feature of the ring.
I had free reign over this entire design and very much enjoyed seeing the recipients face when she opened it.
Do you want a custom piece made but don't know where to start, I can help you design.
ROSE QUARTZ AND SILVER WRAP PENDANT
My client chose the Rose Quartz crystal she was drawn to from my selection and asked me to make a pendant using sterling silver.
I personalised this pendant on the reverse to privately congratulate her achievement as a surprise, she was so delighted!
Your pieces can be personalised too, so please just ask.
