This is Step 1 in the Custom Jewellery Design process. We will discuss and view pictures that you have brought with you to determine if custom design is the route for you. We will discuss desired expectations, outcomes, timelines and budget. Hand drawn renderings will be done by Chris during this part of the process to assist in generating ideas and finding solutions. All artwork renderings remain the intellectual property of Palko Jewellery Design.
Please note: The first hour is on us. Consultation time required over and above the 1st hour is billed at $60/hour.
This is Part 2 of the Custom Jewellery making process is the concept drawings of the planned piece. Part 1 is the FREE one hour consultation to determine the nature of piece, your ideas concepts and if custom design is the route that is to be taken.
Please note: images are showing client CAD Picture Presentations. As illustrated, various options can be displayed in metal colour and stone colour.
We will provide a presentation of pictures for custom ring approval. Approval can be done in person or via email. There can be 2 minor changes to CAD Designs included in pricing.
This is Part 3 of the Custom Jewellery Making process, 3D Printing. Part 1 is the FREE one hour consultation followed by Part 2 CAD (Computer Assisted Design).
3D Printing is very useful in the design process. This provides a physical sample of what the finished product will look like. The print resin is strong enough to handle therefore helps you understand the feel and form of the finished piece. You will have to use your imagination to "see" it in a reflective gold or platinum. We do know that if you like it in the resin/wax then you will absolutely love it in the gold!
This is Step 4, the final step, in the Custom Jewellery making process. The previous 3 Steps have been completed and customer approved (1 HR Consult ~ CAD Picture presentation ~ 3D Print).
Step 4 Includes:
- Up to 6 grams 14K gold for item being made. Finished weight above 6.0g will be charged at the daily rate/gram.
- Casting of 3D Print wax.
- Setting of all stones (customer's and new).
- Final detailing and finishing of piece in accordance with agreed upon directives.
