Have you been considering a jewellery commission for a very special and personal gift? If so you’ll find out how to commission a piece of jewellery here. Engagement rings, wedding rings, wedding jewellery and bespoke jewellery commissions are all undertaken. Of course I’d be happy to have a no obligation chat before you make any decisions.
The Commissioning Process
Although you have a special occasion coming up and ideas for a beautiful piece of jewellery you don’t know what happens next? The steps to commission a piece of jewellery will go something like this:
- Elizabeth calls you on the phone, or you meet in person, to chat about your jewellery design ideas.
- The aim of the initial consultation is to establish the materials, budget and timescales for the work.
- Elizabeth provides you with an estimate for the design and making of your jewellery. (Silver and gold prices can fluctuate which is why the customer is given an “estimate” rather than a ‘quote’.)
- If you wish to go ahead Elizabeth draws up design sketches for your comment.
- Then a non-refundable deposit is paid.
- Once the design is agreed, your jewellery is handmade from start to finish (unless otherwise agreed) to your design specifications.
- On request, you will be provided with progress photos of the making process.
- Finally, the finished jewellery commission is delivered to you. Provided that you are completely happy with it, you will be requested to make the balance payment.
The Next Step
It’s important to me that you’re involved throughout the process. Hopefully the above has given you enough information you need to commission a piece of jewellery. If you want to know more you may find the answer on my FAQs page here. You may wish to browse the Commissions Gallery here.
I look forward to hearing from you, Elizabeth

A beautiful handmade bespoke pendant. Elizabeth was a very accommodating and helpful designer/maker. I’m very pleased with the piece. Thank you.*

It means so much more to be given something different or rather unique, than to be given something that has been mass produced. So, needless to say I am a huge fan of Elizabeth Norris’ jewellery.*
Miss Norris provided a subtle but attractive solution to the problem of wearing earrings suitable for both heavy engineering and appearing in front of the camera.*
