Custom designs

Writing your story in metal and stone.

Welcome to the beginning of your newest immortal memory. You have come to the right place when you want to make something your own. Here is an outline of the creative process we would walk thought for designing a custom piece of jewellery.

1) The idea for Your Story - The process begins with an idea and a personal or virtual meeting with Peter. What are we creating, and who is it for? Is this a gift for you or a loved one? Is this about starting a story between lovers or celebrating your own story? The more Peter knows about who he is making this piece for, the more meaning and value he can weave into the process.

2) The materials for Your Story - One would think the idea should predate the materials, but with jewellery, it is the materials that shape the design. Stone and metal have a life of their own; some work together, while others resist. It is also important to note that hunting for a unique stone can take up to a month. Some questions to ask yourself with your custom design are:
  • What metal would you like to use?
  • What stones are you drawn to or have personal significance?
  • How will this piece be worn; will it be a ring, a pendant, or earrings?
  • What is your ideal budget?

3) The design of Your Story - As each story is unique, it takes time to design each piece. Upon meeting with Peter, and the stars align, there is a $350 non-refundable designer fee*. This fee includes the following:
  • Three sketches,
  • Three editing of the chosen sketch
  • One digital rending of the final selected design.
  • One meeting to review selected or custom stones.**

*The designer fee is negotiable, but this is on a case-by-case basis and will be discussed during the meeting.
** Subsequent meetings for stone or designs may cost extra and will be discussed during the initial meeting.

The end of my part in Your Story - Depending on the complexity of your custom piece, custom jewellery may take six to ten weeks to complete. Jewellery over $1000.00 comes with a complimentary appraisal and the story of your stone.
