Commissioning a bespoke piece is an opportunity for Rachel to create something truly exceptional just for you.
Working closely with you, Rachel aims to make sure each piece is as individual as the wearer. The designing process starts by discussing the style and materials you love along with an exploration of different forms, from classic to contemporary. Rachel will share her design ideas with you and create a unique piece just for you.
A bespoke piece made in Rachel’s signature style can be more affordable than one might imagine. A fixed budget will allow Rachel to provide you with the design and materials of your choice and a personal service.
Rachel’s bespoke jewellery can be made in a variety of precious metals including 18ct or 22ct gold, rose gold, platinum, sterling silver or sterling silver with a 22ct gold overlay. Existing designs can also be adapted or modified and made in solid gold or platinum. Please contact Rachel for a quote.
Your journey from ‘concept to creation’ will generally take somewhere between 4 to 8 weeks for pieces of jewellery. Larger items of silversmithing will take a little longer. Rachel usually has a waiting list so please allow plenty of time for your beautiful creation to be handcrafted.
One of Rachel’s most popular services is her bespoke modelling of your much loved pet. Please contact us for further details and discussion of your ideas and needs.
