What is a commission? In art, a commission is described as an act of requesting a creation of a piece. In other words, it is a request for a custom jewelry project.
Step 1 - Commission Inquiry Form
If you haven’t done so already, please fill out the Commission Inquiry Form. By filling out the form, you will provide us with the initial details and ideas to create your custom piece. It is the first essential step in the Commission Process for us to get to know you a little better.
Step 2 - Consultation
Once you submit your Commission Inquiry Form and we had reviewed the details of your request, you should receive a follow-up email within 24 hours. The purpose of this email is for us to schedule a consultation, either via telephone or in person (if you’re local to the Savannah area). The call should take approximately 15 minutes (the in-person meeting can take approximately 30 minutes), which will give us the opportunity to thoroughly go over the details of your project, such as design ideas, budget, timeline, and to address any questions you may have.
Step 3 - Contract, Design and Estimate
After the consultation and receipt of all necessary data, we will begin drafting your design. Once we’re on the same page, a written Contract will be sent to you within 7 days via email. Along with the Contract, you will receive specific details of your project, your final design, estimated cost and a completion timeline.
Step 4 - Deposit
In order to get the ball rolling, a non-refundable 65% deposit is due with the signed contract. This will guarantee your place in line and we can begin creating your masterpiece.
Step 5 - A Masterpiece in the Making
Since each customer and their Commission piece is unique, the completion timeline can vary based on many factors. While we’re working on creating your masterpiece, be on the lookout for more emails from us with the progress we’re making on your project. We will typically check-in with you every 1-2 weeks or when milestones are met.
