HOW IT WORKS
BOOK YOUR DAY
Book your workshop day in the studio by using the below form or emailing Emine on firstname.lastname@example.org -no payment is necessary at this stage. After our complimentary consultation £100 deposit will secure your workshop day.
You can have your workshop on most Saturdays and any week day apart from Mondays and Thursdays through out the year.
The workshop should be at least 6 months prior to your wedding. If you have less than this I will do my upmost to accommodate you.
After I receive your booking you will be invited to a consultation (either face-to-face or online) to discuss your options and to choose available dates for your special workshop. The more time we have the smoother your experience will be.
During the consultation we will talk about many things including the types of precious metal you want your rings to be, design options and ring sizes etc.
I shall order the required precious metal for your workshop approximately 4 weeks before the workshop date to allow for any lastminute minor changes.
There are at least four things to consider for your rings: Width, Shape, Metal Choice, Your Ring Size.
