The steps of the process
When looking for a special gift, you can go in a store or on the internet and buy a jewellery piece in a few minutes or hours. So you might ask why choose to do a custom piece?
- You might have a number of jewellery pieces that were handed to you that you don’t like and don’t use.
- You like using your resources, and you don’t know what to do with a number of broken chains, single earrings and other bits and pieces sitting in your jewellery box.
- You might want to celebrate a special life event – anniversary, engagement, graduation, an accomplishment -with a piece that has meaning to you because of its features, gems and colours.
- You would like to re-purpose a solitaire.
- You want to be sure nobody else has the same piece.
- You like going through an experience and be a part of the process.
- You like thinking about the person who gave you this special piece every time you wear it.
- You like changing and creating and expressing yourself, while keeping a part of the heirloom jewellery that was gifted to you.
At Teresa Biagi Jewellery Design we have readymade pieces to choose from, but I would say our specialty is creating that special piece for you.
We first have a consultation to find out what you like and to understand your dream, to get as much information from you as well as the occasion for this celebration.
We also receive your materials, if you have any that we can use or re-process.
We source precious stones if required
We then make sketches and narrow down the ideas, evolving into actual models with virtual images that look like the piece is already finished – no guessing! Detailing until the piece is completely perfect.
This is what a presentation looks like; we like giving options to choose from.
We then go to production, we 3D print your piece; the precision is amazing! Then the traditional methods come into play – casting, assembling, soldering, finishing, setting, and polishing to perfection!
We place the piece in the box and make the Product Description Certificate and then, the rewarding part comes: the smile in your face when you see the piece for the first time!
That is the fuel that keeps us going for more projects.
