Recycle Your Old Jewellery . Upcycle / Remodelling
Have your old gold jewellery, silver or platinum recycled into a new design.
You can have a cherished old piece remade in the same design or you can have a new piece made to your own tastes.
You can use a bunch of old jewellery or just one or two treasured pieces.
Of course the cost of doing this for you is wide and varied. I will need to know what you want making, so that I can work out the time required to make it.
Please don't drop me a message along the lines of "I have two old rings and want something nice making, how much will that cost me?"
Ideally send me some pics of what you have and some pics or a sketch of what you want making.
This kind of work can take 4-5 months, depending on the complexity of the new piece.
Some stones may be subject to being damaged when being removed. Some stones are so soft, that they can be difficult to remove without the risk of damage. In addition, you also get some metal loss when making something new. You can't get 100% of the metal from old pieces into a brand new piece without some loss.
