Emma-Kate specialises in making bespoke commissions and prides herself on transforming her client’s ideas into reality. During the commissioning process Emma-Kate believes in working closely with you to make the experience an enjoyable one.
People commission a piece of jewellery for a whole number of reasons but the process usually remains the same. Outlined below is the process of how Emma-Kate proceeds with a commission.
Firstly, to get the ball rolling, it will involve an initial discussion about the proposed piece, this maybe in person, on the phone or now even via skype.
Once it’s clear what the requirements are in terms of the design style, metals, budget and stones etc. Emma-Kate will spend time designing several options and then compose a quote with estimates and timescales.
After the client has chosen a design an initial deposit of 50% of the cost is required before commencing with the piece.
In some cases a CAD design, wax or silver mock-up will be made to confirm the design and sizing before the piece is fully finished in the metal of choice which maybe silver, gold or platinum.
The final piece will be beautifully packaged and a valuation with photos of the commission will be provided for insurance purposes.
