Commission via a phone call from out of the blue Tuesday, May 5 2015
It is always a delight when old “Maker’s Mark” clients from Melbourne resurface, we did numerous commissions and sold from our range over a twenty six year period but never held their client’s names and addresses. Rosemary’s phone call led to an email which led to this remake of her husband’s interlocking ring set, this time in 9ct rose gold. They are chuffed, I’m chuffed to have their contact details now and another commissioner back into the fold.
there are boxes still, I admit . . . but I am outa there! Saturday, May 2 2015
Melt this 24ct gold, 1 ounce coin and make me a solid gold ring like my oval turquoise cabochon one Thursday, Apr 23 2015
. . . and I want a large oval polished onyx piece set into the top!
An email was received on the 3rd of April 2015 – we sent the pendant to Sydney last night, 22nd April 2015 Wednesday, Apr 22 2015
No task to large or small . . .
“I am looking for a moon and stars pendant in silver to remember my Mum . . . and I am having no luck! A friend of ours has one of your lovely bracelets and last weekend I was in the Art Gallery shop in Brisbane and I saw some of your jewellery and I wondered if you have something like this available? I’m afraid I couldn’t afford to commission – anything large so sorry if I am wasting your time.” “I would like something similar to the photo enclosed – in theme but doesn’t have to be in style – in silver. I understand if this is not something you would like to – or do – take on. Thank you for your time and have a nice Easter.”
We were happy to comply with instructions, exchanged more emails and quote. The end result was created at studio wholesale – Cresent moon pendant as image supplied – diamond eye in Argentium 935 Silver with polished finish to fit the chain (supplied).
