Bespoke Jewelry


We believe that jewelry is not just about carats and karats. It's a form of self-expression. You want your jewelry to say something about who you are as a person or to symbolize your unique relationship with the person you love.

Silver + Salt is thrilled to work with you on a bespoke jewelry commission and to help make your vision a reality.

THE PROCESS

Bespoke jewelry starts with a consultation with me, Christine Heidel. I am the owner and maker behind the jewelry line Silver + Salt. During the consultation, we will talk about your ideas for your piece of jewelry, look at our current designs as a starting point and talk about the gemstones and other materials you want to incorporate into your design.

At this stage, we will also discuss your budget and talk about how different decisions can impact the total cost of your project.

If you aren't local to Seattle, that's okay! We have experience working with customers remotely and are happy to chat with you via email, phone or video call.

Design

If you decide to move forward, we will begin design on your project. Design might consist of some quick sketches or a full CAD rendering. This is also when we would source any gemstones required for your jewelry.

Making your Jewelry

Once we have your design set and materials in hand, we will move ahead with making your jewelry.

For some pieces, this means we will fabricate your jewelry by hand in our Pike Place Market studio. For other pieces, we may have a wax model printed and cast with one of our Seattle-based manufacturing partners. We will always be up front with you about how your individual piece of jewelry is going to be made. And, no matter which fabrication method we use, your jewelry will be made using recycled metals and ethically sourced gemstones.

The timeline for a bespoke piece of jewelry depends on the individual piece and our current workload. Ideally, allow about 4-6 weeks for your design to come to life, although some projects can be completed in a few as 2 weeks.

 

 

 

"I heard about this place from a friend who had some cute items from here. I worked closely with Christine to design my wedding ring set, and couldn't be happier with what she produced. She worked with my general idea, sourced the different stones I wanted and kept me updated during the entire process. "

Budget

Custom jewelry projects can range dramatically in price depending on the design and materials used. We believe that bespoke jewelry can be accessible within a wide budget range. We do our best to help you design a project that fits within your budget and realizes your vision.

Payment for bespoke projects works as follows:

      • For some projects, we will collect a 25% deposit to cover the cost of design including CAD renderings and gemstone sourcing. This fee is applied to your final project.
      • A 50% non-refundable deposit at the start of fabrication.
      • The remaining 50% balance is due prior to pickup or shipping.
