With over 30 years experience in hand crafting fine jewellery, Erica offers a complete bespoke jewellery service. As well as designing and making your jewellery, Erica also oversees the often complicated project-management of gem and gold sourcing, hallmarking, setting, engraving and final finishing.

 

Erica specialises in making one-off bespoke pieces, crafting unique jewels especially for you. She can advise on and source the precious metals and gemstones needed for your requirements. She can also use old, unwanted or unloved gold and platinum jewellery, making it into new, modern pieces that suit their owner’s tastes and lifestyle.

 

Erica starts with the occasion and the ideas you have. This can be anything an anniversary, a special birthday, engagement, wedding, memorial or simply the treat of something beautiful with sentiment.

 

Before meeting Erica for a consultation, it is a good idea to have a comfort able budget in mind; bespoke work starts from £950. During an initial consultation (which can be conducted in her studio, via the phone or online), Erica listens carefully to understand you, the underlying story and the requirements of the new piece.  During this conversation, she will create design sketches and advise on suitable gems, precious materials and the design style . Erica’s designs remain her copyright, all rights reserved.

Erica can work with many existing precious metals and gems of your own that you may want incorporated. Alternatively she can source a selection of the  finest and most suitable precious materials for your piece.

As a qualified Gemologist and diamond grader, Erica can help explain the complexities of an individual gemstone’s qualities such as cut, colour, and clarity. She will have information on the source of the stone and where it was cut. This enables you to see and understand what you are buying and thereby make informed choices.

Should you require more complex design details, such as working illustrations and multiple stone sourcing, there is an up-front non-refundable charge which will be discussed for each project before further work is undertaken. At the go-ahead of a commission, a non refundable part-payment of 50% is required. The remainder will be due on completion of the job.

Commissions take approximately 12 weeks, although if there is a particular deadline please mention this at the beginning as Erica will always try to help meet a special date.
