At Patricia Dudgeon Designs I love to make beautiful contemporary jewellery for all of your special occasions. I can design and create a unique piece of jewellery for you.
I specialise in making unique wedding and engagement rings in platinum, palladium, gold and silver. I will work closely with you on the design, working from your ideas and inspirations, providing a comprehensive design service. I may also be able to re-cycle your stones and metal from older family pieces.
All of my bespoke commissions are hand finished to a high standard, in the North Berwick workshop.
After a discussion with the client I then have a brief to work with. This ring was to be a gents pinky ring set with a dark blue stone. I first produced a sheet of rough sketches which are the starting point. The client then selects the ones they like best.
From the first selection I can then go onto CAD, computer aided design, and work up the designs selected into a photographic image of the proposed piece. I can also work out a final costing, before proceeding to manufacture.
The Cad file is then sent off to be cast up. It is then returned to me for setting and polishing.
In some cases CAD is not used and I make up the piece from scratch. It is a matter of which process is more economical.
