CUSTOM & ONE-OF-A-KIND
I design and craft custom rings with the modern woman and man in mind. True to the NEAL design aesthetic my rings are substantial, clean and simple. All designs are hand carved and cast in fine metals.
My custom design process begins with an initial consultation and a non-refundable design fee/deposit of $200, which will be applied to the final purchase. During the initial consultation meeting (in person or over the phone) a budget is set, inspirations and materials are discussed and a timeline for completion is set. Please allow up to 2 weeks (after your initial inquiry) for your consultation to be scheduled.
Once I begin to plan and design, an estimate will be provided for evaluation. After 1-2 rounds of design ideas/mock-ups, a final design direction will be agreed upon. At the end of this phase, I will collect a 50% payment based upon the estimate provided for the final piece of jewelry. With this payment, the client agrees that production of the custom piece will start. Custom pieces typically require 6-8 weeks to complete. Client changes made to the final design after production starts are subject to additional charges and may change the final cost of the piece.
The remaining balance will be charged after the piece is completed and with client approval. Written approval will be required upon receiving the final product. Jewelry will be picked up or shipped after final payment is received. Sales tax will be charged to custom jewelry in Minnesota.
For an order cancellation after production begins, the client agrees that they are responsible for any non-recoverable costs. The $200 design fee will not be returned. Custom designed pieces are final sale.
Please Note: Although all projects are considered, not all are accepted. I work within my design aesthetic, skill and schedule. I give each project the time and care it deserves, so I choose custom projects that fit these guidelines. I DO NOT recreate other artists designs. Let's do something different.
