What Does Handcrafted Mean?
Handmade from precious metals, genuine antique sea glass and quality raw materials in the studio. Customers buy from me because they appreciate my artisan craftsmanship, unique approach to designs and aesthetic, as well as my desire to achieve your vision.
Commissioning and wearing a custom piece will reflect your individual style, your desire to be unique and your appreciation of non mass-produced jewellery.

Tell me the Process.
Simply email me at email@example.com with Custom Order in the subject line. Give me as much information as possible about the colours, size and shapes of the sea glass or stones you would like. It may be something as simple as a long gold chain with 2 charms and a piece of seaglass, to a gemstone and seaglass ring.
I will then give you an idea of costing, estimated time of delivery and the ongoing process. You can read this quick blog post on commissioning rings.

Do I need to visit you in person in Order to Request a Custom Order?
No, you don't, as long as you have access to a computer we can manage just fine. Most of our commissions are done long distance.

What materials do you work with?
All my sea glass is genuine, antique seaglass and is only from a few select locations – Seaham in the UK, Japan and Iceland. I choose to work with this glass because it is of a superior quality, is hard wearing and beautiful. I source my gemstones from reputable merchants in Australia.
I work with recycled sterling silver, argentium silver, 14k gold, 14k gold filled, and rose gold filled. Depending on your design I will recommend appropriate metals for you.
