Welcome to the Studio at Melrose.
My name is Rhona, I am the face, designer and maker behind the studio at Melrose. I have always been hobby potty. Art being my greatest passion - this love of art and creating has developed into art in metal and precious stones. I have been making jewellery for 6 years. I use many techniques to create bespoke pieces of art that are wearable and unique. I work alongside my clients to create things that `are uniquely theirs and are truly meaningful. I also sell jewellery in a local art gallery.
My business is small and focuses mainly on making bespoke pieces for clients that have been commissioned. Clients can expect clear communication showing them the process as we go and clients are fully involved from the start of the design process to the end piece. I have created memorial jewellery (using cremation ashes) and breast milk jewellery for clients. I am always open to new ideas and new techniques.
I try to be as environmentally friendly as I can be recycling materials where I can, reducing plastic use, I use hand based methods. jewellery is packaged is reusable cloth bags that can be stored in your jewellery boxes to help keep your jewellery tarnish free. All jewellery comes with a makers warranty that last 12 months.
I am a member of the British society of jewellers. I am also a member of the Guild of jewellery designers.
Typically pieces take approximately a month to create and all jewellery is fully hallmarked. Assayed in the London Assay office. Even pieces that are not required due to being underweight. I use the hallmark as a guarantee of quality and like art has a signature this is my signature.
if you want a piece of jewellery that is bespoke, unique, meaningful, made to the highest standards, is of assay quality and is guaranteed through assay and comes with a warranty...then get in touch. I love working with people to create things that really are all theirs in every way.
I'd love to hear from you....firstname.lastname@example.org
