The Commissioning Process
Step 1 - Initial Consultation
The commissioning process starts with a conversation.
Whether a conversation at an exhibition, or a chat over Instagram, email or phone, Alice will be there to answer your questions and talk about your ideas.
These initial discussions allow Alice to gauge your ideas, feelings and concepts. At this stage, it is helpful to have an idea of your budget for Alice to work towards.
Step 2 - Design Proposal
After taking your ideas on board, Alice will create a proposed design, with drawings to your specifications.
Alice can create a variety of options for different budgets.
Once you are happy with the design and agreed price, Alice will take a deposit of 50% to begin the making process.
Step 3 - The Making Process
This is where Alice works her magic to create your bespoke piece. Alice uses the ancient technique 'chasing and repoussé', which takes thousands of hammer blows to make each piece. This time consuming process means that your piece is completely unique.
Alice will discuss the timeline with you and can keep you posted, with photos throughout the journey.
Please note that hallmarking can take up to 2 weeks after the piece is complete.
Step 4 - Completion
Upon completion of the work, the balance of 50% must be paid in order for your piece to be shipped to you.
Alice will send your work via Royal Mail Special Delivery if you are based in the UK. Internationally shipping prices and timescales are dependant upon location.
If you have an idea you would like to discuss, please contact Alice.
