I am happy to give consideration to commission work.. My Relics bangles are a particular favourite to make and can be created solid or articulated. Solid type examples can be seen below.
Remodel Relics Bangle
This freeform Relics bangle was constructed from a selection of broken and unworn pieces. The client and I discussed a few must have points and then freedom of design was granted. The client was very happy with the result.

The short video was shot just after the piece was finished Please do excuse the dirty working hands - polishing is a messy process!
The client supplied a selection of old unworn gold and silver jewellery, some of which contained stones. The brief was to create one of my Relic bangles in an oval shape.. The bangle was to be more silver than gold.
The rather lovely garnet and setting were saved from the scrap pot and made into a wearable mixed metal pendant. The client was thrilled to be able to now wear a previously unworn piece of inherited jewellery.
The client provided the stones for this statement neck piece. Complete design freedom was given, with the exception of one constraint, that being that no 'claw' style setting were used. A variety of bezel finishes were used along with different textures and patination depths. The client loved the final result.
A selection of gold earrings and an amethyst pendant were re used to create this stunning contemporary ring.
A collection of unworn silver including a charm bangle of forty five charms was melted. Three new identical hammered bangles for a grandmother and her two grand daughters were created.
The clients original engagement ring had a broken shank and damaged claws. They wanted a larger diamond and a more contemporary feel. Old and broken gold along with the original shank were melted and used to create the new heavier ring. The client and her husband were delighted with the piece.
This commission bowl, raised from fine silver was a gift from a group to their very special teacher. The piece is constructed from a single piece to represent the whole and finished with patination - the darkening, as favoured by the recipient and texturing to represent the teacher, the students and their Guru, BKS Iyengar.
