5 Reasons You Should Buy Handmade Jewellery From The Designer

1. The Price:
As a designer, the price you pay for an item of jewellery does not have to include the overheads that retailers have to cover. The designer can afford to offer discounts, free earrings or a whole set for a better price than the retailer. In other words you are getting more for your money, on both quantity and quality.
2. The Quality:
Each piece that I make as a designer is made with the utmost care and attention. If something is not quite right, I will start over and believe me it may take more than one attempt to get something looking right.
I always take the time to get to know each piece of jewellery I make, and can spend the time telling you what you are receiving. I will always be honest with what materials I have used and you can be sure the price accurately reflects the quality of materials.
3. Customisation:
You want something that looks the same but slightly different? As a designer, I can do it! If a piece is not quite how you want it, just ask. If you prefer a different colour, it’s not long enough; it’s too long; I can change it to suit you. In addition, if you have an old bracelet, or item you have bought elsewhere, that needs re-vamping, again just ask and I will see what I can do with it.
4. Uniqueness:
Each piece is a unique item that has been crafted in a certain way to achieve a unique look. As I said before, pieces can be adapted to suit you making all items distinct. Pieces are often one-off, but if you want the same thing as someone else, just ask!
5. Service:
When you shop from a designer you will receive a one-to-one service that will out weigh any you receive from a retailer. By having this special relationship with the designer, it enables you to have exactly what you want. If you are unhappy with the design process, you can change the outcome. Although many pieces are ready made for purchase, the great thing about shopping from the designer is that you can ask them to make something else specifically for you. Building that relationship with the designer will help you create the perfect item of jewellery.

Designers work to please you, their customers. If you are not happy with your purchases and the service you receive, you will go elsewhere. That is not our aim.

I strive to provide an individualised service to each customer, to enable them to feel comfortable in the knowledge that their piece of jewellery has been made for them.
