new computer aided design rings
the benefits of computer aided design are that exact details can be requested and then seen as an image before the piece is made, this gives my clients confidence that the piece described and designed for them will be as they visualized it.
my recent commissions have been about working with my clients and my CAD team to to create some beautiful rings , some of which are illustrated below :-
many thanks to my clients for this lovely commission….
their testimonial was much appreciated:-
‘Helen provided my wife and I with an excellent professional service, which was an honest and enjoyable experience from our first contact to the finished bespoke rings she created for my wife.
Helen took time to fully understand my wife’s requirements and came up with two fantastic designs that met the brief perfectly and were subsequently commissioned.
Without hesitation, we would go straight to Helen for any future pieces and have no reservation in recommending her brilliant results. ‘
‘Thank you both so much , it was lovely to meet you and work with you both to achieve your special designs , and it’s really good to have met your expectations too.
Thanks again for trusting me with your commissions , I really appreciate it .’
another example is illustrated below :-
many different designs, and any stones can be set in rings such as this,-
each one being unique .
many thanks to my client for this lovely commission too
This was a commissioned piece, and was created mainly in silver but with gold wings this was all hand fabricated so involved many hours at the workbench making all the separate parts of the bee, it was a fun piece to do , so thank you to my client for the commission.
9ct white gold canal scene pendant-designed and created by Helen Burrell
This was a lovely commission to do which reflected my clients’ pastimes, as they owned a Canal barge.
It was commissioned for a Ruby Wedding Anniversary gift , and I created the scene in 9ct white gold to show the water passing under a canal bridge, with a fence and bulrushes in the foreground, and it was set with two diamonds to represent the sparkle on the water.
The pendant has a feature Ruby set in the top of the piece.
Other scenes can be made to reflect your special places too, just give me a call to discuss your ideas , 01509 239348
This silver bangle was designed and created for one of my clients to use up some of her family pieces . Special stones like the moss agate were set as a feature in this new silver bangle.
The stone was retained in its original setting from a ring she had previously…and was secured in a four claw silver mount. Small diamonds were used from another piece she had, and were flush set into the silver leaves, as symbols of water droplets on the leaves , tendrils of silver wire decorate the frame to suggest growing plants .
Other designs of bracelets and bangles can be created using your old family jewellery ,-please feel free to contact me with your ideas and we can work together to make something special.
my thanks to my client for this commission.
A Bespoke stud
This is a very kind testimonial from my client:- Adrian
‘My recent commission from Helen Burrell was prompted by a case of ‘Mid Life Crisis’ ( or rather ‘Mod’ life crisis!) I had, for some time, been trying to source a gents yellow gold , single stud earring depicting the iconic Red, White & Blue Mod Roundel using preferably, set stones. Having trawled the internet thoroughly I was unsuccessful – no surprise there as such a piece existed only in my mind’s eye as I had never actually seen such a piece. The decision was then made that the only way forward was to have one created for me – so back to the internet, where I arrived at Helens website. After reading her excellent reviews, I got in touch & I am so glad that I did. The finished piece was exactly what I had envisaged. The attention to detail & interpretation of my requirements was amazing & resulted in a 11mm gold stud using no less than 22 precious stones of exceptional quality to achieve the desired design which was subtle & tasteful – important when you are an aging Mod the wrong side of 50 & cannot get away with wearing anything too outlandish! However, in certain light, the fire & sparkle of the stones really are something – but I am sure I can get used to this! You could be forgiven for thinking that a bespoke piece of this quality would be prohibitively expensive but I was surprised to find this was not the case. Helen is a lovely lady who clearly cares about what she does & how she does it to achieve that special piece for her clients. If you want to obtain the unobtainable in bespoke jewellery, give her a call – You will not be disappointed!’
Many thanks Adrian it was great working with you,- and I love that we got it exactly right for you , my CAD design company deserve most of the praise though .
To my future clients,- please feel free to call me if you have a special piece in mind and I am happy to find the best way to create your special piece too ..
