Online Jewellery Design Appointments During Covid-19 Measures By prudenandsmith on 21st April 2020 in Bespoke jewellery, Bespoke rings Free one hour Online Jewellery Design Appointments During Covid-19 Measures with Rebecca Smith our Creative Director can now be booked through our website. There are two slots available each day except for Sundays at 11am or 3pm using this link https://www.prudenandsmith.com/product/book-a-design-appointment/ You can select a phone call or a face to face video link call. Outline in the comments section briefly what you would like to discuss. If you requested a video link we will email you a link to follow at the time of your appointment by email. Clicking on it will open Zoom in your internet browser or in the Ap if you have a Zoom account (not necessary for the appointment). If you’ve not used Zoom before arrive 10 minutes before your appointment to check it works on your device which will need a microphone and a camera. Smart phones, Ipads, laptops are ideal as they have inbuilt cameras and microphones. In the appointment we will be able to see each other, share screens to view designs or view stones and jewellery using a webcam. Before the appointment consider emailing in any ideas you have or visual research that you have done. If you have your own materials you would like redesigned it’s helpful to have a ruler and a digital kitchen scale handy so its possible to get an idea of the amount of material you have and the size of any diamonds and gemstones. The aim is to make the appointment just like a face to face appointment that you would have if your were visiting the gallery. The aim of the appointment is for us both to get a clear impression of what you would like to buy or commission and to be able to produce a finished design with a quote so the item can then be ordered. This may be possible by the end of the appointment. Often we will need a little more time to produce you a finished drawing or source special gemstones or diamonds on your behalf. After the appointment you will receive either an order confirmation or quote showing your design and pricing options. From a sketch to the real thing We have lots of ways of supplying you with design information. Sometimes showing you a previous design either as a picture or sample is enough. If it is a new concept we are exploring we use ink or coloured pencil sketches, photoshop or CAD design, or make the item in silver, wax or plastic first. Whatever is best to ensure you are going to love your finished jewellery. Once you are happy to go ahead and have paid your 50% deposit we will make your ring in our Ditchling workshop in four weeks. Our Jewellery workshop is continuing to create fantastic bespoke jewellery for our much valued clients even while our gallery has to remain closed. So if you have a special anniversary or birthday do get in touch to explore how you might treat yourself.
