A private commission is always an exciting challenge. I'm very happy to work together with my clients in producing unique and exciting jewellery.
Your commission starts with a chat! This may be done via email, phone or in Person. If we are not able to meet in person don't worry, email will also work just fine. I work online regularly with many of my clients from all over the world. I will ask lots of questions to get a feeling of your ideas. Sketchbook in hand we will draw our way through the conversation. If the order is for a wedding couple I like to find out a little bit extra background information. How you met, your hobbies etc. This gives me a feel for your style and will help in creating a very personal pair of rings for you both.
It's a good idea to do a quick sketch of your idea before we meet. It doesn't have to be a good drawing! A very bad scribble is a perfect starting point for us to work on. If you are not really sure how the final piece should look it's also no problem. During our discussion I will offer you a few ideas and drawings until we find an idea that you are totally happy with.
Finally we will discuss which stones and precious metals to use. Once the design is fixed I can offer you a price and an approximate delivery time. Your piece will be handcrafted with love, care and fine attention to detail.
Looking forward to working together
A few Examples:
Anna asked me to make a ring for her husband Alex. When we first sat down together we had no idea what it should look like. Then I asked Alex, What style of art do you like?" and he answered, "well, chaotic I guess, just like the tattoo on my arm". Bingo! we were onto something....
We agreed that the ring should be big and strong with a good weight.
I met Ernst in Vienna a few years ago. Last year he sent me an idea he had been working on. I loved it! especially the snake. We discussed different types of daggers until we agreed on the one in the bottom picture. Originally the Rose Quartz would sit left on the cross guard of the dagger. This would have made the pendant lopsided so we went for the classic approach and set it in the middle. I created the rose on the side in a little bit of a Charles Makintosh style.
Ceramic designer and Author Karen Stechauner commissioned me to create the handle for her collection of Urns or soul houses. Here a few pics of one of them.

The opal told me how it wanted to be set. It was right ;)
