Working with clients to create a unique piece, whether its jewellery or silverware I something I love to do. The collaboration of taking an initial idea through to a finished form, working closely with the client, is both challenging and rewarding. There is something extra special about a piece which is created with purpose for the recipient, taking on board their likes and needs. The commissioning process is more affordable than you may think, I ensure the process is simple, pain free and perfect for those wanting a unique gift for a loved one.
The first step is to contact me with your idea. At this stage it doesn't have to be anything more than "I am looking to buy a piece of jewellery/silverware as an anniversary gift for my partner". If you have more of an idea in your mind that's great, but don't worry if not as during our initial chat I will ask you questions about the recipient so I can start to build a picture of their style and likes, and together we gain a clearer understanding of how the item should develop.
The next step is for me to come up with a design, which I present to you and together we tweak until you are 100% happy with it. Only then, and this process can take as long as necessary to ensure you are satisfied, will I start making.
Timescales and prices are discussed during the initial consultation and a 50% deposit is required at design stage, with the remainder to be paid by an agreed date. I continue to work closely with the client, keeping them updated of the process and taking photos of the work as it evolves.
The finished piece will come giftboxed and hallmarked, with the offer of a yearly 'spruce up' service of a thorough clean and polish.
Please feel free to contact me for a no obligation chat about any commissions you may be considering.
“I am so pleased with it - You are such a talented lady.”
"I came for the top quality and innovative silversmithing and stayed for the customer service"
"I didn't have a design idea when I came to Suzanne but I knew I wanted a distinct golf ball marker and that I liked her Brogue pieces. I gave her the requirements of size and that it had to be different each side and I'm blown away with the finished piece and I'm not surprised the Assay Office shortlisted it in their competition"
