“I don’t even know where to start other than say thank you so much for the MOST beautiful ring I’ve ever seen, I can’t stop looking at it! I’m so lucky that I have such a beautifully designed ring and something that is much more me” – Emily
GIVING NEW LIFE TO OLD JEWELS
Do you have a diamond bracelet sat in the back of your drawer? Or a sapphire ring inherited from your granny? Remodelling unworn and heirloom jewellery can both enhance the sentimental value of your piece, and help your budget stretch further. Remodelling is becoming more and more popular, and I embrace bringing heirloom stones into my bespoke projects.
You will work with me each step of the way to bring your dream jewellery to life.
“The magic of Hattie is that she understood what I wanted before I knew it myself. With her kind and creative guidance, I received the necklace of my dreams using every part of my mother’s engagement ring.” Sophie
WHAT’S THE STORY YOU WANT TO TELL?
We meet in person or via Zoom to discuss the story you want to tell in your remodelled jewel. Through our discussions I will begin to build a picture of your style by exploring your jewellery taste, seeking to get to know you, and working with you to establish your budget.
DESIGNING YOUR DREAM JEWELLERY
I will then draw on all the images, stories, and thoughtful answers you have shared to develop several design variations. Providing options helps you to find the design direction that resonates with you the most. We will then start refining your chosen design direction, until we have landed on your dream design.
I will source any additional stones that may be needed for your design, choosing only the best and most beautiful to suit your budget.
When the stones have been approved, we will then ask for a deposit and the making of the piece can begin.
“I asked Hattie to incorporate a sapphire that my wife and I had bought on honeymoon into a piece of jewellery for our tenth wedding anniversary. She was unflustered and delightful to deal with at all times, and the pendant itself is my wife’s favourite piece of jewellery” – George
VISUALISING YOUR DESIGN
My team can then begin to develop a computer model of the design, producing a silver model where needed. This stage allows you to begin to visualise your heirloom stones in their new design in three dimensions.
YOUR JEWEL IS CRAFTED WITH PASSION AND CARE
The stones from your heirloom or unworn jewel will then be unset ready for their new home. The careful craftsmanship of your jewel can begin.
I work in collaboration with some of the best British makers and master craftspeople with decades of experience to bring your design to life. We work with passion, care and meticulous attention to detail at each stage to create the perfect jewel.
“Hattie was able to capture my idea in a flash! Both my fiancé and I are delighted with the result and she gets admiring glances all the time. Handing over my mother’s ring to convert to the beautiful piece she has created, took some confidence on my part. However, Hattie has delivered a ring more beautiful than anything I could have imagined!!” – Chindu & Theresa
YOUR DREAM JEWEL
Remodelling unworn jewels and heirloom pieces means these stones can be celebrated and treasured once again, carrying their stories with them but in a piece more suited to your style. The result is an exceptional design that is rich in history, but that tells your unique story. Jewellery to love everyday.
When complete, I will hand your remodelled piece to you in person, along with any unused elements of your heirloom or unworn piece. The un-boxing moment is one of the most moving, where the marvel of bespoke jewellery is made real!
