I know that the sentimental value of your inherited pieces make them important to keep, but when the design isn't to your taste, or doesn't fit in with your lifestyle, they can end up unworn, stored away in a box.

I specialise in reworking your heirloom jewellery into new pieces you will treasure. I offer a re-design service that allow you to transform your unworn gold and gemstones into fresh new pieces within my signature aesthetic.

Why would you rework your jewellery?

It Doesn't Fit Your Lifestyle

You love your inherited ring, but you have a lifestyle that means it gets in the way at work. Or maybe you inherited a pair of large earrings, but you're more of a necklace person. By reworking it into a new piece of jewellery, you can make it more wearable for you and for your lifestyle, so it works for you.

It’s Just Not Your Taste

A inherited brooch that’s been passed down through your family may have  sentimental value, but it remains unworn in your jewellery box as the style is just not your aesthetic. So why not turn your brooch into a piece you would wear every day instead?

You Want To Share It

Your have inherited a family ring, but you have several children that all deserve to inherit it - how can you possibly split it between them?

By deconstructing the ring into its elements and reworking it into 3 unique necklaces means you can share the memories.

Sophie' Story

Sophie had inherited some loose tourmaline gemstones, as well as a brooch set with a tourmaline. She loved the sentimentality of the jewellery but didn't wear brooches and wanted to use the loose stones in a new piece of jewellery.

She had looked through my website and decided on styles that she liked, then emailed to book a video call. We discussed the pieces, her aesthetic preferences and budget for the reworking. I then put together some design ideas for a pair of stud earrings and a ring. Sophie chose the designs she liked best and paid a deposit to start the commission. As she didn't live near my studio, Sophie was sent images as the commission progressed from wax into gold, to make sure she was happy at every stage.

'' I am over the moon, thank you so much. I love the way the gold looks with the green, and I think the stones look just right in their settings! Like they belong there. I can't thank you enough, this whole experience has been so much fun!

I can't wait to wear the earrings all the time. I also tried the ring on and it fits me perfectly so it's going to be difficult giving that away!''
