Here at Anja Potze, the creation of bespoke pieces is an exciting process! Our own in-house jewellery expert, Laura Golborne, graduated with honours from The School of Jewellery in Birmingham and has received many awards for her designs including the Craft and Design magazine’s Best Newcomer Award in 2012. She has also been chosen to exhibit at Christies (London, 2013), the Victoria and Albert Museum (London, 2012), Made (London, 2012) and Treasure (London, 2011).
Following her degree, Laura worked for Cooksongold and Domino Jewellery before joining Anja Potze Fine Jewellery in April 2015.
Laura has the technical ability to design pieces from scratch or to create pieces to include any jewels you may already have. After discussing your requirements she will create expert drawings and wax models to help you visualise your new piece of jewellery. When you are happy with the design, she will oversee its creation with our master goldsmith, who will sculpt raw materials into your new beautifully crafted piece of jewellery.
One Customer's Story
Alison, one of our valued clients, had two rings which she had inherited. Over the years, fashions change, and she found that she just wasn't wearing them. As they had sentimental value, she did not want to leave them to languish in her jewellery box, so she brought them in to the boutique and discussed remodelling them into just one ring.
After discussing what she would like, Laura set to with paper, pencil and paint, and sketched out some ideas.
After showing the sketches to Alison, they refined and chose the design to go forward with and a full quotation was given.
When the ring arrived back into the boutique from our goldsmith, Laura checked over the piece, making sure that everything had been made to her specification and satisfaction before calling Alison to invite her in to look at her newly created jewellery.
Alison was delighted!
So, what have you got lurking at the bottom of your jewellery box? Have a rummage - you'll be amazed at the possibilities. We will even scrap any metals or stones that are not needed to offset the cost of your new piece..
