Custom Jewelry Design
This voucher will put you in queue for a bespoke design consultation with Stephanie Lee Paynter. This fee covers the custom design process, including a maximum of 12 custom drawings. The month you choose is when your custom design process will begin. Turn around after payment is approximately 4-6 weeks. Please choose **at least** one month BEFORE you would like to receive your custom piece.
You will receive an invoice before work begins on your custom piece. (Work will not begin until the invoice is paid.) Should you decide not to move forward after the design process has begun or if you do not respond to messages in your month of choice, the design consultation fee is non-refundable.

Frequently Asked Questions:
-What does "bespoke design consultation" mean? / What are you charging for?
This $100 fee covers the custom design process: communicating design ideas, sending photos of stones, and a maximum of 12 custom drawings. I typically spend anywhere from 2-6 hours designing and finalizing the perfect piece. This fee covers all of that. Note that this can be an entirely virtual process or you are welcome to come to my studio.
-How much does a custom piece of jewelry cost?
The average price for a custom design is $150 - $450. Prices vary depending on the stones used and the material. (For instance, some turquoise is much more valuable than others and sterling is more expensive than brass.) I am always happy to create your perfect piece -- within your perfect budget -- by recommending the most cost-effective materials and designs. You will be billed when the final design is agreed upon and work does not begin until payment is made.
-How long does the process take?
I typically reach out one week before the chosen month to begin the process. (So if you choose May, I will contact you in April to discuss budget and design, send design ideas for approval, invoice you, and then you will receive the jewelry 6-8 weeks after payment is made. You will receive a date estimate as soon as payment is made and rush creation is available for an additional fee.
