CUSTOM WORK

If you like my style of work and the energy behind it, but cannot find exactly what you want  or you have something specific in mind, whether in the sense of design, meaning or ‘reason for the piece’, then a custom piece might be just the answer.


Over the years, I have thus made

  • bridesmaids pieces (for different Jewish,  Christian and Hindu weddings!)
  • matching pendants for the wedded couple
  • baptism medal
  • organ transplant gratitude charms
  • memory rings  for the passing away of a loved one
  • wedding bands (each designed separately a ring for their beloved without knowing that they had both chosen the same jeweler! what a surprise it was the day of the wedding!)
  • illness, grief or loss  “courage” pieces
  • high-school graduation rings (to replace the quickly out of date traditional high-school ring)
  • “love declaration”  or anniversary pieces
  • “meeting celebration” bracelet
  • ” desperately want to get pregnant” talisman (it worked within 3 months, not that I guarantee a repeat of this!)
  • “sobriety and life change” bracelet
  •  unforgettable childhood memories bracelet and other remembrance pieces

The list goes on. . .

Combining Energies

Designing a custom piece, whether for you or for another, is always an interesting and very rewarding adventure for both you and myself.

I have a good ability to feel my way through what is important to you (I ask lots of questions!), and I also know my jewelry intimately as well as technically.  Therefore, I can say I have an innate feel of what is possible .

Combining my knowledge and your dreams (whether vague or specific) indeed works very well. I have never in 18 years of creating this type of jewelry  ever encountered a person who was disappointed in a custom piece. On the contrary, most people think the result exceeds their expectation. . .Indeed, when I work, the piece takes a life of its own and small but important elements often suddenly appear which we had not thought of together. Read this post called ‘customer service and thoughts’, for feed-back from clients.

Time-frame

I can only make you a custom piece while I am close to my work-bench. This means during  my usual artshow season, therefore between the end of September and the beginning of December and from January to early April. Outside of that time-frame, I am on the roads of the world, in Europe, Africa or Asia, helping women in Africa, fighting for refugee rights in France or visiting my very mobile children.

Usually, allow 3 or 4 weeks  (sometimes less, check with me!) for the making of a custom piece as I am very careful to spend the necessary and the appropriate time on it: for example, I never mix making custom work and doing my own work, as the energy needed is not the same.

Please contact me HERE so we can discuss what is possible.
