CREATING BESPOKE JEWELLERY
“The ring is everything I could have hoped for and more. It’s the ring she never knew she always wanted.” – Alvaro
HOW I CREATE TREASURED JEWELLERY FILLED WITH MEANING
Bespoke jewellery is a journey of discovery that ends with a sincerely personal piece. A jewel that will wow you every time you see it. Whether you are commissioning a design for yourself, a surprise for a loved one, or creating a jewel together, you will work closely with me each step of the way.
Developing my intuition, skills and knowledge over more than 1000 commissions, I will guide you through each stage to create your dream jewellery.
“I wouldn’t even have been able to describe my perfect ring, so for Hattie to design it without ever meeting me just proves how sensitively she handles her clients and her work.” – Heather
WE BEGIN WITH A PERSONAL CONSULTATION
The first step in the journey is a personal consultation with me either via Zoom or in person, where we will discuss your desires and budget. Through our discussions I aim to get to know you, and the story you want to tell with your bespoke commission.
From engagements to marriage, from the birth of a child to big anniversaries or important birthdays, or even ‘just because’, I am honoured to have the opportunity to help you mark these occasions.
“I arrived at the first meeting feeling very confused and not inspired, then left very excited and amazed by Hattie’s ability to guide me to the right ring. I now can’t wait to get started and choose some stones.” – Zoe
BUILD A PICTURE OF YOUR STYLE
We will work together to build a picture of your or your loved one’s style and jewellery taste. Be open at this stage, share your ideas, no matter how small the seed.
We’ll encourage you to feast on imagery online and visit particular stores to help discover your likes and dislikes.
“From a male perspective choosing the perfect engagement ring can be overwhelming. Hattie made the whole design process feel very personal and most of all enjoyable. When she handed me the finished ring I was blown away and knew instantly that it was perfect.” – Peter
CREATING A DESIGN THAT TRULY ASTOUNDS YOU
I distil all the images, personal anecdotes, and thoughtful answers you have shared to create a number of design variations. You will receive these hand drawn designs, which I will continue to develop until we have found the one that truly astounds you.
During this process I will also begin to review diamonds and gemstones for your design, reserving the very best and most beautiful stones to fit within your budget. Once we have finalised the design, we will meet to review your carefully sourced gemstones. This will be the moment you begin to fall in love with your piece in real life.
At this point we would take a deposit.
“It’s so much more than I could ever have hoped for and I’m so happy to have a ring that feels so me. It’s just beautiful.” – Macarena
MODELLING YOUR JEWELLERY IN 3D
My team can then begin to develop the computer aided design (CAD), producing a silver model where needed. This is the first time you will see your design in 3D, enabling you to truly get a sense of your finished jewellery. This also gives an opportunity to make any final tweaks.
METICULOUS CRAFTSMANSHIP OF YOUR JEWELLERY BEGINS
I collaborate with some of the best British makers and master craftspeople with decades of experience to bring your design to life. Working with the utmost attention to detail at each stage, you can be assured that my passion, care and perfectionism will produce meticulous results.
From start to finish your jewellery will take 10 – 16 weeks. I also offer solutions for a shorter timeline – so if you’d like your bespoke piece sooner, please send me an enquiry.
“Words cannot describe how much I thank you for designing and producing the most beautiful engagement ring that I could have ever dreamed of! I am totally transfixed by the colour and it’s sheer intricacy. I can’t stop looking at it!” – Milly
THE FINISHED JEWEL
The result is a design that tells your unique story. A bespoke creation to be treasured.
When complete, I will hand your jewellery to you in person. The un-boxing moment is one of the most exciting parts, where the wonder of bespoke is realised!
