I’ve encountered all kinds of clients in the custom world over the years… some have very clear hopes and dreams of what they would like to have made and others come overwhelmed with the endless possibilities. It is my job to follow the cues and to guide us all down the exciting path together. The process can start with a loose stone, an heirloom or a found object… it can also evolve from a life-changing story or a compelling image…
My favourite part of the creative process comes near the beginning where I will typically sit at my bench (audiobook playing into my ears) with my trusty tools and a block of wax. There is nothing more satisfying than watching as the ideas come to life –from sketchbook to three-dimensional form!
From the model we move on to the casting, assembling and polishing stages before all the sparkly gems are set. I am happy to keep my clients in the loop along the way with process images and status updates so they can experience the special story of their jewellery as everything comes together.
I am always up for a custom challenge and I look forward to meeting you!
