Restoration & Remodelling
Do you have jewellery you no longer wear, family heirlooms that need a new lease of life?
Perhaps you’d even like to remodel your engagement ring to celebrate a landmark anniversary?
I specialise in all aspects of remodelling, taking existing gemstones or precious metals and creating a new bespoke piece of jewellery that’s truly special!
In addition to these services I also offer ring resizing, alterations, repairs, cleaning, polishing & rhodium plating.
The Design Process
The first step is to arrange an informal meeting to sit down and discuss what you’d like in order to create your dream piece of jewellery. We will also look at various designs you’ve seen and liked, previous Rebecca Jackson jewellery designs as well as metal and gemstone choices.
When we have a clear idea of what you’d like to be made I will work out an estimate for you, and on receipt of a 50% deposit I will start work on your very own unique commission.
This usually starts with hand drawn designs, both to scale and blown up so we can easily see some of the finer details. I initially start with about 3 designs that we can refine down until we have the perfect design for you.
Once we have decided on your final design the final piece fabrication will begin. Depending on the design your piece may be entirely hand fabricated or use some cast elements. Whichever way, your piece will be made by me from start to finish and you will be asked to approve the piece at various stages in its construction.
