The bespoke commission process

Posted by Liz ~ Creative Director on 28th Oct 2019

One of kind!

Here at Untold aside from my collection and remodels I also offer a bespoke commission service. I think many feel that bespoke is out of their budget but I pride myself on offering tailor-made pieces at approachable prices for everyone. I do so because handmade and ethical should be available widely and well, I just love doing them :)

No matter the occasion or budget I will endeavour to work with you to bring your ideas to life.

The process starts off with an initial chat, I also always offer an opportunity to meet in person and view my work if logistically possible. We will then discuss your idea, the timescales and budget; don't worry if your idea is conceptual or just centred around your favourite stone, I have ways of bringing you along in the design journey; It's easier than you think!

I will also give you the choice on how we source the materials i.e reclaimed, vintage and/or FairTrade...but don't worry if you don't have a preference, I will make a judgement call based on the best quality for your budget.

Once we have identified the key aspects of your brief I will develop 3 initial rough designs that we will finesse together. The final design and cost will then be signed off by you, a deposit will be then be requested so I can skip off to source the materials and start the making magic.

Through the making process I take stage by stage progress shots that I will share with you at the end if you'd like to see them.

On completion the final piece viewed by yourself for final approval (either via video or in person) the remainder of the commission cost is paid.

So that's my little process, it's a fun one and at the end of it you'll have a unique piece that nobody else in the world is wearing! Examples of recent commissions can be found on my blog.

Feel free to get in touch for a chat x
