Remakes + Repairs
I offer a full remodelling and repair service. For instance you can have restored an old inherited heirloom piece of jewellery where time has worn it away, reinterpreting its old design. You can work with me to completely restyle the jewellery to have also a more contemporary new look. Where possible I try to recycle the metal and use your existing stone’s as I understand the sentimental attachment you have to your inherited jewellery.
Also the jewellery services involve ring resizing, repair of clasps, fitting on pearls, chains and bracelets.
As an additional service I can organise engraving and pearl rethreading and also on request independent valuations for you and I am also able to facilitate insurance claims.
Following are some example's of these jewellery projects.
This ring was inherited from a Grandmother to a Grandaughter. The center diamond was reused & the ring was completely remade.
The stones were used out of jewellery from three previous generations. It was then a surprise present from a mother to a daughter for a birthday present.
The ring was inherited from an aunt. The top section of the ring & stone's were used & the rest of the ring was redesigned to include scrolls & new shoulder details.
The locket was inherited from her grandfather but the front section was completely missing. I handmade a new front, like a button with her initial.

Using the gold from both rings. Her husbands gold has been used for the surround and the metal from her ring has become the heart. Three diamonds have been added to represent their 3 children.
