Turning old jewellery into a one-of-a-kind piece By Emil Pruden on 2nd September 2022 in Bespoke, Jewellery Repurposing several pieces of sentimental jewellery into a bespoke statement necklace. Having heard about our positive reputation and wanting to support us as local jewellers, Jen came to Pruden and Smith looking to repurpose several pieces of sentimental jewellery into a new statement necklace. She used our redesign service to create a bespoke item, turning her old pieces of jewellery into a (rather sparkly) something new! (Image: vyouimages.com) At the design appointment With a vague brief and set of ideas, Jen came along to our Workshop and Gallery in Ditchling for a design appointment with Rebecca our Head Designer. In just half an hour Rebecca had combined a couple of Jen’s initial ideas into a beautiful design that surpassed Jen’s expectations. And, with a special birthday approaching, Jen requested whether it would be possible for this item to be fast-tracked and ready within four weeks of the appointment – which our team ensured was possible! The end result We’re so proud to have created a unique piece of handmade jewellery for Jen that maintains its sentimental value through the memories associated with the stones. Jen shared that the necklace is “everything I hoped it would be and more. I love the design and the way it shows off the stones to the maximum effect. I normally wear very dainty jewellery, but wanted something larger to wear on special occasions.” In our opinion Jen’s smile in the pictures says it all – we think she looks like a million dollars in her brilliant statement necklace and we are happy to have made something so special.
