The Bespoke Design Process
Jewellery is a very personal choice and having
your own piece designed can be an extremely satisfying process.
The time invested in ensuring the designs are exactly what
are required, results in a piece that will be worn and treasured
- Personal Consultation Louise
Barnfather will discuss your initial requirements - what
sort of item you are looking for, why you are commissioning
the piece (anniversary, birthday, wedding etc.), budget
range, design ideas you may have, your design preferences.
This part of the process is free of charge, with no obligation.
Sketches We will show you some initial ideas and
find out what you like and dislike about them. We can then
discuss the options and narrow down the budget.
- Finial Illustration Louise
will produce a final illustration of your agreed design,
which will be used to make the finished piece. At this stage
you will also receive a written quotation and a delivery
Your jewellery will then be manufactured. How long
this will take depends on the complexity of the design and
the materials used. Stones sourced abroad or which need
to be specially cut, for example, will mean longer production
times. The piece will also need to be hallmarked and will
bear the Louise Barnfather design stamp.
- Delivery You will receive
your unique jewellery in its own box, complete with title
and description. Each piece of Louise Barnfather jewellery
is named, sometimes linked to the reason for the commission,
often inspired by the design itself.
