Custom Jewelry Design
At Christopher Taylor Timberlake Fine Art Jewelry, we can create a custom design for you or your loved one. We collaborate frequently with clients located around the country and world, so communication through email and over the phone is a top priority. We also schedule appointments at our studio/gallery space in Austin, Texas. We will work with you to make sure that you get a beautiful, hand-made piece of jewelry that you love.
Custom Order Process
The process begins with communication regarding the type of jewelry you would like to order, budget, and time-frame. Next, a non-refundable $200 design deposit is collected. The deposit is applied towards the final cost of the piece. A questionnaire is then provided to help us get a better understanding of the recipient’s personal style. The questionnaire includes art he/she likes, personality traits, profession(s), favorite colors, favorite fashion/jewelry designers, and types of jewelry currently worn. Using the information provided, we select and send an initial round of sketches from the existing Christopher Taylor Timberlake Design Catalogue. One of the designs may be selected as the final design, or used as a starting point for customizations. A completely unique design can be created as well. Two or three subsequent rounds of sketches are sent if refinements are needed. Once the design is finalized, a formal estimate is sent for approval. Then, a 50% deposit is collected, and work on the piece begins. Orders generally take about 5-6 weeks to complete from the time the deposit is made. When the piece is finished, photos are sent for approval and the balance is collected. Finally, the jewelry is picked up or shipped.
