Repair or Remodelling Services
Do you have broken or damaged beaded jewellery?
I may be able to Repair them for you.
Generally I can repair -
- broken strands by restringing. I offer silk for Pearls and softer Gemstones as that will protect the delicate bead. Because of wear and tear from the sharp edges of Glass or Crystal designs a stronger thread may be needed.
- tidy up an existing design if it has damaged sections. As a result the amount of repair will depend on the amount of damage to the original design.
- alter earring wires. Either due to different requirements or personal likes I can change earrings from hook to stud or even lever-back. Especially relevant for those without piercings, I can alter most designs to suit non-pierced ears.
- change clasp styles. Do you find the basic lobster style difficult to use. I can add a toggle or magnetic clasp. As a result wearing your jewellery will be easier.
The initial consultation for the repair service is free. All items will be quoted on before you decide to go ahead with the project.
If you have any beaded jewellery pieces that you would like repaired please contact me to arrange an appointment.
This bracelet had sentimental value for the customer, but the elastic it had originally been threaded on had broken and been replaced once before.
After consultation with the customer, it was decided to add a simple, smooth silver toggle clasp from which the charm could be attached.
The addition of the clasp, crimps and wire guardians made it necessary to remove two of the pearls to keep the correct size. Therefore simple earrings were created from them.
Do you have a stash of out-dated jewellery?
Would you like them remodelled into more wearable designs?
Do you to remodel your tired old designs. Do you have some wonderful ideas of what you would like, but not sure how to go about it? Have you been making a scrapbook or Pinterest board of designs you like? As a result are you ready to get that design created?
Have you inherited or been gifted beaded jewellery that is just not right for you. Possibly it is too long or short for you? Consequently, even though you love the piece you are unable to wear it.
Contact me to make an appointment and we can work together to remodel and incorporate your existing beads into a new and exciting design.
The initial consultation is free and you are under no obligation to continue with the design.
All costs will be quoted on before you commit to the project and you will be asked to confirm your acceptance of the costs and the design in writing. Crafting of the item will not commence until the quote has been accepted and the deposit paid.
The balance will be due on the final fitting date. The item may not be collected or posted until final payment has cleared.
