BESPOKE PROCESS

INITIAL BOX DISCUSSIONS

Welcome to our Commissions Page.  We create luxury bespoke wooden jewellery boxes and other box types to commission, for private individuals and business. It is certainly useful if you have a clear idea of what you want and can either sketch or explain it to us. We can either have a telephone conversation or use social media to converse (Messenger) or email, whichever you prefer, and are available evenings and early mornings for international clients.  We will ask you about your box aspirations in detail, including how you wish to personalise your box in terms of

  • Size (from petite ring boxes to medium jewellery boxes to large vault boxes )
  • Type (for instance jewellery box, ring box, trinket box, keepsake box, watch box, presentation box, vault box)
  • Style (for example traditional, art deco, mid 20th century, modern contemporary)
  • Hardware (such as brass, stainless steel, gold or silver)
  • Woods/veneer type (including light woods – sycamore, medium woods – oak, dark woods – walnut, exotic woods and veneers – ziricote, ebony)

We can provide you with samples as well as images of bespoke wooden jewellery box commissions and other box styles to help clarify your ideas further.  Please also view our Facebook and own Past Commission projects which will certainly inspire you.  You can email us directly for further details.

PHOTO REALISTIC RENDERS

After our initial discussions we offer a Design Consultation.  There is normally an initial design fee of £250 which is credited to your final payment if you decide to proceed. However we are currently offering a FREE, no obligation, design consultation until the end of June 2020.  At this stage we consider your requirements in detail and can present you with several photo realistic renders to help you visualise how the final piece will look.   It is easy to change and rearrange box elements such as trays, interior colours and marquetry, and once the design has been agreed we will provide you with a quotation and expected delivery date.  Payment arrangements are flexible and we can discuss these details with you.  (Our box commissions start from £600.00 GBP).

BOX CREATION

Boxes generally take six to twelve weeks to complete depending on current orders, and once your rendered drawings have been approved by you.  All of our custom-made boxes have our logo mark discreetly added as proof of authenticity.

We keep you up to date with box developments by sending digital images of your handmade box with supporting text via email. You can also contact us at any time to ask about progress.

DELIVERY

After receiving the final balance, we will wrap your luxury wooden box in our branded packaging and arrange delivery using an appropriate postal service.  This would be either Special Next Day (UK) or carriers such as TNT and DHL (further afield).  If you have a preferred courier please let us know.  Whenever possible, we will personally hand deliver your bespoke box within Northern Ireland.

We always endeavour to keep to a date especially if it is for a very special event to present this as a personalised gift.  So whether it be a watch box for a retirement, a jewellery box for a 21st Birthday gift, a presentation box for a sports commemoration, or a ring box for an engagement, we will work with you to make the whole box making experience enjoyable and rewarding.

We look forward to working with you.

Best Regards – Ian Hawthorne
