It will start with an initial chat either over the phone or via email. Since this is such a personal thing, we prefer a one on one conversation in the store with the client/s. That way we can explain the different materials and their individual uniqueness to you. You can bring your own designs or under your guidance, we can draw out the designs for you. Maybe you like something that we have on display, but would like to have some changes done? That is also an option.
When you decide to have a piece made, we will work on the style through sketches. We can than define the potential materials, offering choices of precious metals and stones. This process in important because it allows the client to get the feel of the materials and envision how the piece will be when it is complete.
Once the design is confirmed, the manufacturing process can start.
