Custom Jewelry Piece
I don't often take on custom work, but after receiving quite a few requests as well as messages from people who were disappointed to have missed out on one of a kind pieces from the last few collections, I decided to offer up a limited number of spots for you. In this context, custom means that you and I will work together to create a one of a kind piece of jewelry that's based on one of my previous designs. Of course, the stones I work with come directly from the earth and each one is completely unique. Thus, it's not possible to duplicate pieces that feature stones. In some cases, I may have a similar stone in my inventory, and in other cases I may not. With respect to pieces that are created with metals only + don't include stones, they can be "duplicated", but with that said, every handcrafted piece of jewelry is still ultimately one of a kind, since it's made by hands and not by machine.
Turnaround time for these custom pieces will be 2-4 weeks. If you live here in Thunder Bay and are hoping to receive your piece in time for Christmas, just reach out and I'll make that happen for you.
NB: The amount of this listing includes a surcharge of $40 USD / $50 CAD to compensate for the additional time required for communication and execution when it comes to custom work, as well as a $120 USD / $150 CAD deposit. The remainder will be paid when your piece is ready to ship.
The images in this listing give you an idea of past work, but the most comprehensive gallery of my work is available for viewing on Instagram.
All handcrafted using traditional silversmithing techniques, with my own two hands and a lot of heart and soul. Each North Star Silver order comes lovingly packaged and ready for gift-giving. I use GOTS-certified organic cotton jewelry bags and/or 100% post consumer recycled kraft jewelry boxes with natural cotton filling. All orders come with a jewelry care card.
If you have any questions about custom pieces, please don't hesitate to contact me.
