HOW TO COMMISSION
Commissioning a piece of bespoke, handmade jewellery with Karen Cursham can be an exciting experience - resulting in a stunning one-of-a-kind piece created especially for you. All of Karen’s designs can be adjusted to suit different budgets and can be created in different metals. To get started simply contact Karen to discuss your ideas or to arrange an appointment to visit her Leicestershire studio.
As a guide, usually allow between 6 - 8 weeks for completion but timeframes will vary depending on the nature of the piece, the level of design required, sourcing the materials and sending the piece away to be hallmarked by the Birmingham Assay Office.
You can work with Karen in a number of ways including creating a completely new and bespoke design which will involve an in-depth discussion and design ideas sent to you for approval.
You can customise an existing Karen Cursham design by changing the metal, the elements and where they are placed or by adding precious or semi-precious stones.
Karen is often approached by clients who have unworn jewellery that holds sentimental value which they would like to be transformed into a new piece of jewellery. High carat yellow gold jewellery, 14ct and above, may be melted down and reworked into something completely new. Alternatively Karen can integrate a stone from a clients existing piece of jewellery into a new customised design.
