Commissions

Kate has worked on many different handcrafted commissions for clients over the years, creating unique nature inspired one off pieces as well as bespoke contemporary jewellery. This page shows a few recent examples, more are due to be added soon. If you would like to discuss creating a special piece of jewellery with Kate or maybe reworking existing pieces into something new and bespoke then please do get in touch to make an appointment to discuss things further.

Dendritic agate sterling silver ring

I loved creating this made to measure double band ring. It was commissioned by a client in June 2020 using a one off agate gemstone with a beautiful branching dendrite pattern. Here's her response to her beautiful new ring...

"I've received my ring today. I'm delighted with it, it's a great fit and I love the stone. Thank you very much!" Paula (June 2020)

Creating this silver ring in August 2020 was a lovely commission to work on. The client had been given a silver christening ingot as a baby and wanted to use it to create a ring for her son who was due to leave home to go to university. Being able to assist them in creating something so personal that was being passed down through the generations was such a lovely thing to be part of. He was delighted with the finished result and I am now talking to my client about using the remaining silver to create stone set stacking rings for her and her daughter.

Ethically sourced ruby and gold ring

I was delighted to be asked to work on this beautiful ruby and gold ring commission in November 2019. It was important to the client that it should be as ethical as possible, therefore the stone was sourced from a gemstone supplier who only sells ethically sourced and fairtrade mined gemstones. The ruby is 5.98ct and was mined in Tanzania through projects like the Tanzanian Women Miners Association, and Moyo Gems an ethical gemstone programme, working with female artisan gem miners in Tanzania’s Umba Valley.

The 9ct yellow gold was purchased from 100% recycled sources. It has been hallmarked by Birmingham Assay Office and includes a Makers Mark. A beautiful and very special Christmas gift for a very lucky lady!
