Yes!! It is true, I do make things for you, with you in mind.
Requirements / Limits
Happy to look at your ideas and what inspires you. Just a heads up, I don't copy the work of others, but am happy to make something inspired by that or from something you have designed. I can of course design something specially for you. I work in silver and gold. Can and do use a variety of gemstones
We need to work out what you want - let's have a conversation either by email or message, or even in person.
it takes approx. 3-6 weeks to complete a commission, once the design has been agreed, and an additional 10 working days for any Hallmarking to be done. These times may be longer in the run up to holidays, or whilst I am at university.
This can vary, but the starting point for all commissions is £60. I charge for my time, this is important to understand. Price will be confirmed before the work starts. This will increase if you want to change the design, but this will be confirmed as a variance to the work.
Metal costs vary, due to the nature of their daily fluctuation when being sourced
Gemstone costs will vary
Hallmarking costs - this is can vary between £8 - £30 depending on the metal, and how quickly it needs to be done.
A non-refundable deposit of 20% is required for all commissions in silver, and 50% for those in gold.
I accept PayPal and direct banking transfers in GBP. Payment in full is required prior to sending out to you. I am VAT registered, so will send an invoice showing this, unless you are classed as an international customer, then no VAT is currently added. You are responsible for paying any fees related to import and VAT in your own country.
Post & Packaging
Your commission will be sent in one of my boxes with my logo on the inside. To keep it together in transit, and waste to a minimum, it is wrapped in biodegradable tissue and a satin ribbon. I use the Special Delivery Plastic envelope supplied by Royal Mail for UK deliveries, if you do not wish to collect in person.
In the UK (and currently the EU): P&P is £8.64 inc VAT. I use Royal Mail Special Delivery. It is trackable, insured, with next working day guaranteed delivery, which requires a signature.
Everywhere else: P&P starts at £9.99 I use Royal Mail International Signed for. It is trackable, insured and requires a signature upon delivery.
