Bespoke Creations

We love to share our knowledge and experience with our clients to bring life to a piece of jewellery they have dreamed of. 

Commissions may include working with our clients to create a completely new design, taking advantage of our network of the finest craftsmen and stone dealers in the UK to source an amazing stone, or re-working a treasured family heirloom. This may include refurbishing an old stone, or re-setting a stone to transform your piece into a most loved, and importantly, wearable piece in your collection. Octavia’s perspective brings a beautiful balance of classic and contemporary, creating timeless pieces that our clients love. 

See gallery for a selection of the pieces we have created.
