Thank you so much for your interest in a custom piece of jewelry designed by me! I am only able to take a certain amount of custom orders at any given time as every piece is entirely handmade by myself in my home studio. Please reach out 6 to 8 weeks in advance for special gifts. You can find images of my previous work via instagram or browse the gallery section here on my website.
Once you’ve contacted me to inquire about the custom piece you’re looking for and I’ve agreed to take it on the first step is a deposit of $50 to secure your spot in working with me. My time is valuable and I strive to provide excellent customer service to each customer I decide to work with therefore I require this initial commitment from you. A lot of time goes into creating special custom pieces from communication, design process, material sourcing, pricing and photography. The deposit ensures quality in not only the piece but in customer service as well. This $50 deposit will be applied to the final cost of custom and is non-refundable. I accept Venmo, PayPal, Zelle or can create a listing for this.
This is a collaborative process and the more information you can provide, the more accurately I can provide a proper quote and create the piece you’re dreaming of!
No worries if you don't have everything nailed down yet, we can start with the details you are certain of and go from there.
Some things to take into consideration:
What custom piece are you interested in having me create? Have you seen a previous design I’ve made but would like to customize it? Or perhaps there are components from multiple pieces that you’d like to bring together for your design.
Please keep in mind I will not exactly replicate another artist’s work. Please take a look at my shop and instagram to get a good feel for my style and for inspiration.
Are you looking for a ring, bracelet (bangle or cuff), necklace, earrings? If its a ring or bracelet, do you know your size? Most of my rings cannot be resized without having to remake the setting entirely so please keep this in mind. I do have ring sizers available that I would be happy to provide free of charge upon receiving deposit for your custom work.
What kind of metal do you have in mind? Does it have gemstones, if so, do you know which kind?
Other things to consider, will this piece be worn daily? What type of lifestyle do you lead? Are you active or rough on your jewelry? Do you sleep and shower in your jewelry? Do you garden? These things need to be considered so I can ensure your piece will last a lifetime and then some.
The more details the better! If you have images for inspiration please email them to me at email@example.com with your full name in the subject line as well as CUSTOM
Custom jewelry is always a bit more expensive as there are many more factors that go into the process of creating custom pieces. By providing me with a budget, I have a better understanding of what you are looking for and it makes it easier for me to provide you with a more accurate quote. Most custom pieces generally are 20-30% more than some of the traditional made to order pieces found on my website.
Once we’ve agreed upon all of the design elements and materials I will provide you with an estimate of the final cost. At this time I require the balance to be paid to begin working on your piece.
Timeframes vary depending on the time of year but I do my best to provide accurate time quotes.
Please contact me at minimum 8 weeks prior if you need it by a specific date.
Email is the best way to communicate with me during the process. Please allow up to 48 hours for me to respond. There is a great deal of communication that goes into designing custom jewelry therefore it is important for you us to be able to communicate as clearly & freely as possible. firstname.lastname@example.org
I absolutely love creating special one of a kind pieces just for YOU! Custom jewelry is a very personalized process and I’m honored that you‘ve chosen me to bring your vision to life!
Please understand if you are on a very tight budget, it is probably best for you to purchase a made to order or ready to ship piece in my shop.
