CREATE THE PERFECT BESPOKE PIECE OF JEWELLERY

Create the perfect bespoke piece of jewellery

A piece of jewellery is far more than simply a beautiful gemstone set in precious metal – it is endowed with all the emotional values and sentiments that led to its purchase. It is the celebration of a particular occasion… and a life. With a true understanding of this, Helen’s empathy with her clients underscores the service that she offers. The process of creating a piece of jewellery involves understanding what each customer needs and desires, guiding them along every step of the exciting journey. Her mission is to help discover the best way to tell the story of a piece of jewellery.

Recycling jewellery with a treasured history

Having inherited a love of jewellery from her beloved Nana, Annie, Helen has a deep belief in the power of jewellery to tell its story beyond words. While sometimes a client wishes to commission a new piece from design inception to finished creation, on other occasions the need is to remodel a beloved piece of jewellery that embodies the memory of a loved one.

It’s a task for which Helen is perfectly suited, with her industry experience as well as her innate ability to connect, she handles the treasured jewellery of a loved one with respect and sensitivity. She understands the desire to preserve the history of such a piece, while still ensuring it can be safely worn by future generations. She knows that its intrinsic value matters less than the deeper emotional values that it holds.

Inspired by her Nana, Helen has created Annie’s Legacy [link], which offers services such as resizing of rings, remodelling of jewellery, and recycling gold for either monetary value or the creation of ‘new-old’ bespoke items. A 15% contribution is made to the East Cheshire Hospice [link] for all work undertaken or purchases made in memory of a loved one.

THE IMPORTANCE OF JEWELLERY
CREATE THE PERFECT BESPOKE PIECE OF JEWELLERY

Choosing diamonds and gemstones

Finding a gemstone, whether a diamond or coloured gem, for her clients is an important and exciting process. Helen focuses on finding a stone that not only fits the budget, but, crucially, suits the personality, and reflects the individual. As a qualified diamond grader and gemmologist she uses her experience and technical knowledge to source the perfect stones, and she passes on that wisdom to help each client make an informed decision. No two stones are alike and every stone has a story to tell.

Symbolic and meaningful jewellery

While jewellery is an extension of our style, it can also be hugely symbolic. Helen has great knowledge of the myths and meanings that for centuries have served as the subtle messages behind certain creative forms and gems seen in jewellery. For instance: stars are symbolic of divine guidance and protection, while the moon represents new beginnings and healing. Ivy is a plant associated with marriage as it signifies faithfulness. A favourite with brides, pearls have always expressed purity and turquoise was used as a bridesmaid gift as a forget-me-not token. Weaving such symbolism into a piece not only enhances its value, but helps to create something unique, personal and very special.

Choosing a precious metal for your bespoke jewellery

Helen’s holistic approach to bespoke jewellery commissions encompasses all aspects of creation – she recognises that each piece goes through a journey itself. Every component of a ring, a bracelet, a necklace, a pair of earrings… has something special to add to the story. Gold, for instance, finds its parallel with eternal love, due to its purity and durability; others may favour platinum for its superior strength.

The extra personal touch

Helen might encourage an even more personal element by customising the finished piece of jewellery. She fondly recalls helping a couple who decided to engrave lyrics of their favourite song on the inside of the commissioned ring.
Important dates, nicknames and inside jokes hiding a small birthstone within the piece is another.

However you choose to express a sentiment, Helen’s mission is to help you realise a dream, to create a tangible reminder of a significant moment… nothing brings her greater joy.
