Email email@example.com to discuss your ideas. You may already have a clear idea of design; it may be a variation of pieces you have seen on the website, or an entirely new piece within the Ellis Mhairi Cameron aesthetic. This consultation is to help you decide on the specifics of the design, and bring your ideas to life.
If you would like to book a face to face or online appointment, appointments are available to book in person at my London studio, online via Facetime, Zoom or Skype or by phone.
If you have a clear idea of what you would like, appointments aren’t always necessary as emails / phone calls may give enough details for you, but appointments are always welcome if it would help visualise your ideas.
During your consultation, I can discuss with you your ideas, potential designs, your budget, deadlines, and any additional information required to create your bespoke jewellery.
I carry a broad range of different diamonds in stock - click to see examples here. If however you require a specific cut or colour of diamond or specific gemstone to be sourced for your appointment to view, I ask for a Diamond / Gemstone Sourcing Fee (£80). This is then deducted from your final bespoke fee.
2. FINALISING YOUR DESIGN
Following the consultation, you will be sent through a design brief of what we have discussed including design, pricing, lead time and any other details needed.
Visualising how your design will look is really important, so for bespoke designs or designs you would like to see on paper on in wax first, the below options are offered.
To receive a PDF with a series of design drawings the fee is £250. If you would prefer to see a wax model before committing to a deposit, the fee is £500.
For example, if you paid for a wax model and then decided to move forward with the project, this payment would go towards your deposit for the bespoke piece.
For bespoke and customised orders, I require a 50% fee of the total amount due, as confirmation of your order, before production can begin. At this point you will be committed to purchase and the order cannot be cancelled. The remainder will then need to be paid in full before collection or dispatch of the order.
Depending on the nature of the work, bespoke pieces normally take between 5 - 8 weeks to produce. During busier times, such as the lead up to Christmas, this timescale may be longer, so please get in touch with as much advance notice as possible.
Each piece in the collection can be made-to-order with a preferred type, colour or size of stone and preferred precious metal alloy. I can guide you through the collection and possibilities that can be explored to make one of my existing designs more personal to you.
I also offer an engraving service if you would like your jewellery engraved with a personal message. Please email to discuss your engraving and I will contact you with finer details including font options and pricing.

REWORKING HEIRLOOM JEWELLERY
I am more than happy to rework heirloom pieces of jewellery which you no longer wear into something you love, within the Ellis Mhairi Cameron aesthetic.
I can arrange for collection of your jewellery and my insurance will cover your jewels while they are in my possession. Please, where possible, have your stone appraised prior to leaving it for re-setting. This will ensure that the insurance covers it at its accurate value.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org and I can talk you through the remodelling process.
