When we design commissions for you it is a magical experience. It culminates in a timeless piece of art that you will treasure forever.
Whether you have something in mind or no idea where to begin, no matter what your dream, it will begin to take shape as you sit with Rose and ideas begin flowing on the page. The pencils will inspire you as they glide through the sketch books and ideas are realised on paper. See and handle beautiful Gemstones and stunning Diamonds.
Your emotions and personal character traits are captured in the expressive lines of Rose’s drawings, and by the conclusion of the consultation you will have a full understanding of the beautiful handmade masterpiece we could craft for you. Once you are delighted with the design, Rose will share the creative vision with her husband, Master Goldsmith, André Viljoen. He will call on his many years of experience at the bench, transforming the original idea from the page to reality by beginning to forge and sculpt. The workshop becomes filled with sounds of craftsman’s artistry as the metal begins to takes shape.
When we create your design commission piece, it is authentically hand-crafted at every stage by traditional methods. It is brought to perfection in a simply beautiful, and often breath-taking, piece that is as individual as you are.
Every commission begins with an idea and we invite you to a complimentary Design Consultation. This is your opportunity to meet with Rose, in-person or online, and explore ideas. Whenever possible we encourage clients to visit our shop. It is vital to make an appointment so that Rose is available to sit down and discuss your commission, show you the workshop and have to hand the many precious materials and pieces we have. Our dedicated design studio and meeting room is a quiet, private space, free from distraction. We understand that not everyone can visit us and we can conduct consultations via Skype or Zoom.
