This is the fee for a custom order. Please see description below on information regarding this.
Custom designs for pieces are possible but do require a bit more time and expense. In order to create a custom piece, I do work with a jewelry designer who requires payment for their time. If you have an idea for a piece, the best thing to do is either find an example of something you are interested in. Once we hammer out the details of the piece (size, shape, band and bail details, etc.), you will pay a fee of $200 to start the process. This $200 deposit is a non-refundable deposit and only covers the cost of the design itself and does not go toward the actual purchase of the piece.
Once the designer has finalized a design, it is sent to you for approval or edit requests. The designer can do 2 edits before they ask to be compensated further for their time. Once the design is approved by you, I send it in to be cast and sent to me. This process can take up to 4 weeks. Once the piece arrives, I will set it with the ashes as I would any other order and send the completed product out.
