Custom Design Process
I love working with our customers on one-of-a-kind design projects. Below is what to expect when creating jewelry with Elisha Marie Jewelry.
This will allow us to get a chance to know you better and get an idea of exactly what you are looking for. Feel free to send me pictures of what inspires you for your custom design project. This can be anything from a piece of jewelry you saw online or something interesting you found on Pinterest. If you don’t have a design in mind, we can work together to find your style.
2. Design and Revision Stage
With your ideas in mind, we will work together to further refine the design, using images or design sketches. You will review the details, and discuss feedback with Elisha Marie.
Based on this feedback, we will then refine the details to your final design.
If you are using your own gemstones, please send us a photo before so it can be approved.
To begin the design and revision process, EM Jewelry requires a $200 non- refundable custom design consultation fee. This is to cover the time involved in the design process and will be absorbed into the overall budget for the design. An invoice will be emailed to a customer which can be paid by credit card.
-EM Jewelry will sketch two preliminary drawings based on your information and a budget range. The drawings will be emailed for approval.
-The design stage is a critical element in the Custom Process in order to clearly outline the design concept and budget for the project.
-We will allow up to two changes for the design.
-Being very specific and providing pictures of ideas is helpful. All change requests are done by email.
3. Rendering and Model Production
This is the stage where EM Jewelry starts to create your jewelry design.
Based on the final design, we will render the design, often in CAD, or hand carved wax model. If the final design meets your approval, the jewelry then goes into production.
-Custom Design with CAD begins at $2,000, exclusive of materials (metal, stones). This price includes time with our Custom Design Consultant, back and forth on designs, production of drawings, rendering of models, production, casting, gemstone setting, polishing, and hand-finishing each piece.
If at any time you are unhappy with the design, you will be responsible only for the phases of the design that have been completed. Otherwise, all payments during the initial design process will go toward the final price, with materials, metals, included in the final price.
Custom designs are final sales and non-refundable. From start to finish the entire process should take 4-8 weeks, subject to the specifications and/or changes in design. If you have a special deadline, depending on the design, we will do our best to complete your project more quickly than 4-8 weeks for a rush fee.
4. Project Completion
Once your Custom design is completed, it will be shipped to your address on file with an email confirmation including tracking number and insurance.
Orders are shipped using standard USPS Priority Mail Express 1 day delivery, insurance and signature requirement unless otherwise noted by the customer.
