Existing Jewellery Transformed - Before & After
-From simple alterations to complete redesigns. Transforming existing items into something new. There isn’t anything more rewarding than presenting an item made by Martin to our clients and seeing their reaction. It makes this reaction even more special when it has been made from existing, sentimental, precious pieces of jewellery owned by the client.
-Martin spends a lot of his time remodeling customers jewellery, it might be a simple request like changing the setting on a single stone ring, but often customers have a few pieces of jewellery that they no longer wear or have inherited, which may not be to their taste and style. Martin combines these items and transforms them into a new unique wearable piece of jewellery that our customers can then enjoy wearing for many years to come.
-STEP BY STEP
If this appeals to you, bring your items in and speak to us about what you might like, bring magazine cuttings or images taken from the Internet if this helps you explain the design you have in mind.
-Cost plays a very important part when we design any item of jewellery, if you have a budget in mind this is very helpful for us to know, complex designs cost more to make, therefore a lower budget enables us to work with simplified designs, we then know the pieces we design are affordable to you. If you have an open mind and creating something you will love plays a bigger part than your budget, then please let Martin’s knowledge and artistic mind flow.
-Now that we have an insight into what appeals to you, Martin will sketch the design onto paper, for more complex designs we will create the design on our CAD program. The computer aided design program really is amazing, and allows you to see any design we have discussed come to life on screen. (See CAD CAM for more info).
-Once you are happy with the design, we will take a deposit, this is normally 50%. Once your item is made and you are satisfied with the completed piece, the balance is then payable.
