Bespoke Jewels with Elizabeth Terzza

Everything you need to know about my process and how we can work together to create your very own heirlooms...

Bespoke jewellery can be filled with memories and keepsakes from the most special people, moments and milestones in your life. Crafted with a sense of collaboration and connection, each and every contemporary creation is inspired by your story.

 It starts with a simple idea.

Your ideas are always the best starting point. Send me a selection of images that really speak to you or photos of jewellery that you love and tell me a little bit more about what you like. This helps me learn about your (or your loved one’s) personal style so that I can create jewellery that is perfectly tailored to you.

We can set up a phone or video call to talk about your ideas (or we can keep our conversations quieter via emails if your bespoke idea is a surprise gift). If you are local to Herefordshire, I would be happy to meet for a coffee and discuss ideas in person.

I do have a waiting list for bespoke work, so as soon as your design booking is paid, I can secure a date to start working on your jewellery designs.

Get in touch via email, Instagram or fill in a simple form here.

The design is in the details.

This is the really exciting part where I pull all your inspiration together into bespoke designs. I sketch ideas, taking into consideration your ideas, personal style and the practicalities that will make your heirlooms last for generations.

You’ll receive a couple of design concepts from me as well as some advice if needed. At this stage, it’s important to pay attention to the small details and let me know which components you love and which you’re not too sure about. I always look forward to hearing your feedback. We'll talk about the size of the stones, types of settings, different metals and styles.

You’ll receive your design concepts shortly after the date we had booked in. (Sorry, no queue jumping). When you are happy with your final design, I will send you a payment link (you can pay the total upfront or split the amount into multiple instalments). Then I can buy the materials and start working on your beautiful jewellery.

Leave the rest to me.

Then I get to work bringing designs to life and translating your inspiration into beautiful jewels. Depending on the design, creating your bespoke piece of jewellery could involve processes such as carving, forging, casting and texturing.

The timescale for different designs will vary and I’ll always discuss this with you before starting the making process.

A huge amount of my attention and care goes into every single piece, creating beautiful sentimental jewels that can be passed down for generations.

Et viola!

As soon as your bespoke creation has received its final polish, I’ll be in touch to arrange delivery/collection. Your jewellery will arrive in an Elizabeth Terzza jewellery box, lovingly packaged using eco-friendly materials. If the jewellery is a gift, I’m happy to send it directly to your loved one with a personalised note.

Get in touch with your ideas if you'd like something made especially for you. I would LOVE to hear your jewellery ideas and I’m happy to answer any questions you might have.



“From the moment I asked Beth to design and make a ruby wedding anniversary ring for my wife she was a delight to work with! She is very collaborative and involved me at every stage in deciding the preferred design, type of gold, size and grade of ruby, etc. Beth doesn't advise, as such, she presents you with options and allows you to decide, which I really liked! The end result has been universally admired and, most importantly, my wife loved it! Beth is not only a wonderful jeweller, but also a lovely person to work alongside. You will not be disappointed!”

– Bruce.
