The most important equipment used to fashion bespoke pieces is a keen ear. Neil works closely with clients to determine the vision for the piece they have in mind, and to provide confidence during the creation process.
During the initial consultation Neil develops the basic design brief, timeframes and gems to be used. He then sketches the piece so the client can view the design and consider further iteration during a follow up consultation.
Once a design is finalised a wax model can be made to the exact proportions of the final design. Painted and set with gems, the model is an accurate 3 dimensional replica that can be worn, considered, adjusted and agreed upon.
It is also at this point that gem selection is completed. The last appointment is when the client comes to collect their treasured, unique and individually designed piece of jewellery. The entire process generally takes about four weeks, depending on the piece.
Balthasar Jewellery is available by appointment at our Melbourne CBD location. Please feel free to call or email to make a time for your personal consultation or peruse our gallery.
