Angela offers two custom design services:
Choose a design from our existing ready to wear collections and have it tailored to suit you by choosing a different metal, size or adding/ changing stones.
An entirely custom-made piece of jewellery and a premium service, made as new or using your own heirloom pieces as a redesign. Choose from an array of stones, shapes and sizes and discuss your design in detail during a personal consultation. Precious pieces are created with a high degree of integrity, sensitivity and intuition for each commission, very much a luxury experience with you at the heart of the process.
There is an appointment system to discuss both of these options. This allows for the time and space required to discuss everything with you in detail at our busy shop.
If you'd like to have something tailored, re-designed or commission a new piece then all you need to do is make an appointment for an informal discussion.
Make an appointment by phoning us in Caernarfon on 01286 672472 or e-mailing me. (Video consultations are possible if you cannot visit the shop).
Some common questions about re-designing and commissioning bespoke jewellery:
Why should I have my heirloom jewellery re-designed?
Usually the jewellery in question has a sentimental value or a family connection, this doesn't necessarily mean you like it or want to wear it but by having it re-designed it won't sit in a box unused for years.
Plain jewellery can be personalized by adding stones and textures, making the piece 'you'. For example, we have personalized items such as plain gold bands with scatterings of tiny diamonds to make a contemporary wedding ring.
Your re-designed piece will be completely unique to you. You are able to be involved in having a piece of jewellery custom made to fit and suit you.
What sort of pieces can be re-designed?
Most pieces of jewellery can be re-designed as long as they are a precious metal such as Silver or Gold that Angela is able to work with. Gemstones can be removed and re-used as desired. If it is just the gemstones you like these can be removed and added to a brand new piece of jewellery.
Angela can offer advice on the type of metal and gemstones at your design appointment.
Does my jewellery have to be melted down?
Angela's preference is to modify rather than melt to keep as much of the original jewellery intact as possible, this doesn't mean it will look the same. This is much more cost effective and allows the original character of the jewellery to be retained. However, sometimes it is necessary to melt down the item(s) you would like re-designed. For instance if you have several pieces of jewellery that do not match up we may need to melt them down to make one whole piece.
What happens during an appointment?
If you are having a redesign we will need to look at the pieces you have, so please bring them with you. You will be asked what you would ideally like to create so having an idea of what you like is helpful. this could be colours, metals, shapes or other inspirations. (Advice on how feasible this is based on the existing jewellery for a redesign is given at the appointment).
Angela will also offer design suggestions. This will usually involve making some quick sketches of ideas, looking at some real life examples, and if required looking at gemstones to add to the piece.
A full quotation is provided after the appointment and there is never any obligation to undertake the work. An appointment usually lasts around 40 minutes.
How much does it cost?
Each re-design/ commission is different and the cost is based on the complexity of the design involved as well as the materials and labour.
The first appointment to discuss your re-design/ commission is free of charge and there is no obligation to proceed with the work if you are not happy.
A full price is provided after your appointment, Angela does not give estimates.
Terms of payment are a 50% deposit on order with the balance on completion.
