Wow! What an amazing experience working with you all to create a truly special piece of jewellery! Using inherited pieces and combining them together was a wonderful idea. I enjoyed each step of the way from the initial hand sketches, CAD visuals and finally the finished article. Every time I look at it I smile and remember the very special people who left me the jewellery to be able to do this. Lara D-J. Facebook review.

Transforming Existing Items Into Something New
There isn’t anything more rewarding than presenting an item made by Martin to our clients and seeing their reaction. It makes this reaction even more special when it has been made from existing, sentimental, precious pieces of jewellery owned by the client.
We can melt silver, 9ct yellow, white and rose gold, palladium and also platinum. We can melt a mixture of gold carats together, for example 9ct, 18ct and 22ct but we do not mix yellow or rose gold with white gold, nor can we melt silver, platinum or palladium with any other metal. Martin will unset stones that are currently set within items that you wish to have remodelled, these stones can be reset in a new item/items or they will be returned to you if they’re no longer required.
For us to say if it’s possible to create the design/item you have in mind from your existing jewellery we would need to see and weigh it. This enables us to have a better understanding of what we can make from your existing metal content.
If there isn’t enough metal for your required design then we can add to it. This enables you to have the design you desire and you only have to buy part of the metal weight. It is of course possible to create a design with a mixture of materials as long as these remain as separate components of the overall design.
Visit us with any items you may wish to remodel and we will be happy to advise you.
Here are two examples of this method and more can be found on our ‘Commissions’ page
