Commissions

Commissioning a piece of jewellery is a wonderful process which allows you to create something that is totally and utterly unique to you. Working with clients in this way is a process that Andrew English relishes. Andrew always starts a commission with the view that nothing is impossible; whatever it is that you would like, it can be created.

“It is always wonderful to be asked to make something from scratch; to interpret what the client wants is a special type of challenge. The really great thing about the commission process is that you are never quite sure where it will take you; and for that reason it is an exhilarating journey for both the client and myself.”
