Bespoke Creations

Bringing your ideas to life

With the help of internet technology such as Zoom, SMS, Messenger and WhatsApp you can design the perfect bespoke piece from anywhere in Australia.

This customer had seen a turtle charm bracelet I had on my social media pages and loved it.  As it had already been sold I showed her a couple of other turtle charms and beads I had that she may like and she fell in love with the Paua shell and Sterling Silver style in this photo.

Years ago she had a favourite necklace in little blue and white beads that she wanted to replicate and add the turtle charm to.

Customer Briefing

Discuss colours, style and other design ideas

During our conversations the customer advises me of the colours she liked, what sort of beads or look she was after, the length of the piece and other things relevant to the design.

With this information I sent photos of beads and materials I have in stock that might fit her descriptions and she could narrow her choice down.

I had several beads that fitted her description and added a few more that picked out the colours in the Paua shell and she developed the mixes she was most interested in.

Trialling Patterns

It's time to get into the pattern design phase.

This is where I make up several “dummy” strands in different patterns using the bead mixes the customer has short listed.

Once I have a few of these samples made I send them via her preferred communication method for her to let me know the elements she likes or dislikes.

A few little tweaks and another set of bespoke “dummies” are sent across the internet.

Sometimes I may send a design out of left field just as an idea to develop on.

Are you looking for an exquisite gift? Let me create it for you and you won’t have to run all over town looking for it?

Have you an accumulation of beads from your travels that you would like crafted into a fabulous piece for yourself or someone special?

Would you like duplicates of chosen designs made for Bridesmaids or family members

Most bespoke or custom-made designs can be made in multiples*

Some of my existing designs can be duplicated or remade in different materials or stones to suit your requirements.  This will depend on the availability (and suitability) of the materials and the original design.

Visit the Testimonial page to read reviews from some of my previous customers, and feel free to contact me to ask any questions.

Do you love one of my designs?

But need it altered to suit your requirements?

I can often change the clasp style.  Do you find the basic lobster style difficult to use?  I can add a toggle or magnetic clasp.  As a result, it will be easier for you to wear.

Either due to different requirements or personal likes you may want an ear-wire changed.  I can change earrings from hook to stud or even lever-back.  Especially of interest to those without piercings, I can alter most designs to suit non-pierced ears by using clip-on or screw-on findings.

If you have allergies to some metals, ear-wires can be changed to surgical steel or niobium (which is physiologically inert and hypoallergenic)

Depending on the design of the original piece, I can at times reduce / increase existing designs if they are too large / small.

The Initial Consultation is Free!

And you are under no obligation to continue with the design.
