BESPOKE COMMISSIONS

One Of a Kind Designs

Specialising in bespoke jewellery design, I work on both traditional and contemporary designs. Alongside creating completely new pieces I also work with clients on heirloom redesigns to give much-loved pieces a new lease of life. Every project is different, and I always approach bespoke designs as a unique collaboration between myself and my clients.

How does it work?

The bespoke design process starts with an introductory call or studio visit to discuss your ideas. Working to your brief, I develop a selection of initial design sketches and provide a quote estimate for you, followed by detailed drawings of your favourite design.

Once all details are agreed on, I head to the workshop to create your unique piece of bespoke jewellery.

Is bespoke expensive?

Bespoke jewellery commissions are designed to fit to your budget, and my custom designs start from £1200.

The first introductory appointment (virtual or in person) and the follow up appointment to discuss initial design ideas are both complimentary, and once the final design is chosen and the quote agreed upon, I request a design deposit of £250. This is non refundable, but will form part of the 50% deposit once we proceed to the making stage. Final balance is paid upon completion of your piece, before collection or insured postal delivery.

How Much do i need to know about jewellery?

I work with both experienced customers and customers who are completely new to the bespoke design process. Whether you need help in developing a design or you have a clear idea of what you want, I love to work collaboratively with clients to reach the final design.

I also work on a wide variety of heirloom redesigns using gemstones and precious metals from your old jewellery, or creating modern versions of sentimental pieces.

How long does a bespoke design take?

The bespoke process generally takes from 4-16 weeks depending on the complexity of the design, chosen materials and processes used to create your piece.

If you are working to a deadline or special occasion please let me know, and I will do my best to accommodate your timeline. Payment plans are available upon request

Frequently asked questions

Is my jewellery made in London?
Yes, all of my pieces are designed and made in my London studio. I also work alongside a number of expert tradespeople, all of whom are based in the local area.

How much does a bespoke engagement ring cost?
Bespoke engagement rings start from £1500, and I carefully work to your individual budget.

Is my jewellery ethically made?
Yes, all of my materials are ethically sourced with careful consideration for the environment. I use 100% recycled gold and traceable gemstones in all of my designs.

What is the difference between 9ct, 14ct, 18ct, 22ct and 24ct?
The gold karat (ct) indicates the percentage of pure gold within a metal alloy. 24ct is 100% pure gold, 18ct contains 75% pure gold, 9ct contains 37.5% pure gold. The rest of the metal is a mix of copper and silver.

Can I design my own ring?
Absolutely - I offer as much or as little guidance in the design process as you like.

What is a blood diamond?
A blood diamond is a stone which has come from areas of social unrest, or unregulated work environments. None of the coloured gemstones and diamonds used in my work come from these dangerous environments, and all are guaranteed to come from ethical sources.

Past Bespoke Projects

JOE & INAS

TEAL SAPPHIRE, DIAMOND, PLATINUM & GOLD ENGAGEMENT RING

Joe & I selected this stunning oval teal sapphire for him to propose with, as he wanted to give Inas the freedom of designing her dream ring. Inas had a clear idea of the style of ring she loves - modern antique - which was a fantastic starting point, and she knew she wanted to incorporate diamonds and yellow gold into the design.

The result is this absolute knockout of an engagement ring, made in recycled platinum and 14ct yellow gold. Set with sparkling diamonds, the platinum rays with milgrain highlight this incredibly special sapphire.

SHAILI & VILLE

Molten Lava-Inspired Wedding Rings

Shaili & Ville approached me with a rough concept, knowing they both have very different personal styles that they wanted to combine in their matching wedding rings.

The final hand carved his and hers wedding rings are made in recycled 14ct yellow gold, inspired by flowing lava and their zest for life and exploring the world together.

Agostina & James

Fancy Yellow Diamond and White Gold Ribbon engagement Ring

James unexpectedly proposed to Agostina on Christmas Day, and tied a beautiful gold ribbon around her finger in place of a ring. This ribbon served as the starting point for our design, and I used imprints from the real ribbon to form this unique white gold engagement ring.

Agostina chose a sunny fancy yellow diamond as a reminder of her home town in Sardinia, which is elegantly held in place between the two ribbon strands.

GEORGE

TEAL SAPPHIRE TRILOGY ENGAGEMENT RING

George had the fun task of selecting the perfect teal sapphires from my collection for this bespoke Bowerbird engagement ring. The final selection is the brightest true teal central sapphire with complimentary green-toned side stones, a rich and modern colour combination in this gold ring.

Hand carved and cast in recycled 18ct yellow gold.

DANIELLE

Parti-Sapphire and Yellow Gold Engagement Ring

This incredible multicoloured sapphires was selected from Clio's Vault. The v-shaped, open-sided setting was designed to show off this unique stone, highlighted by the warm 18ct yellow gold ring. Small milgrain details along the knife edge are the cherry on top for this contemporary classic.

MARIE & CHRISTIAN

Classic Modern Wedding Rings

With a fascination for the natural world and a modern aesthetic, Marie & Christian came to me with a clear brief: classic his and hers rings with a Clio Saskia twist.

Handmade in recycled 18ct yellow gold with beautiful single and double engraved milgrain details.

SEBASTIAN

Whiskey Barrel Signet Ring with Bespoke Engraving

To celebrate Sebastian's 30th birthday his parents approached me to design and create a special signet ring. As a distiller, a whiskey barrel was the perfect form to take inspiration from for this white gold ring.

Sebastian's previous career as an officer in the Royal Navy took him on journeys across the globe, which is represented by the charging battleship on the face of the ring. After retiring from this, he moved into wine making, followed by distilling - these professions are intertwined, so the illustration shows grape vines growing out from the pot stills.

ERIKA

BESPOKE SLINK CLICKER HOOP

This lovely little earring was inspired by the Slink Ring, which Erika absolutely loved. She approached me to create a unique hoop for her helix piercing, which she could wear every day.

Clicker hoop made in recycled 14ct yellow gold.

Shaun & Leo

Wave Sapphire & Platinum Engagement Rings

This elegant pair of men's engagement rings was designed for a lovely couple, whose happiest days are spent together on the beach. Shaun and Leo both picked out their favourite sapphire from Clio's gemstones collection, each choosing a slightly different hue of blue to represent their personalities.

Made in recycled platinum with natural, ethically sourced blue Australian sapphires.
