Why Beskpoke?


Uniquely yours

“When you commission a piece of bespoke jewellery you’re doing so much more than buying an object. You’re buying an experience. You’re buying a relationship with the maker. You’re creating something completely unique and something to be treasured”
Where’s the story in off-the-peg? Remove the branding from something that has been mass produced and what’s left is bland and faceless. Who designed it? What inspired it? Who’s hands created it? And what makes it unique to you?

By commissioning your own bespoke piece of jewellery you are tapping into that very essence. You’re nurturing an emotional relationship with the object and the maker. You’re buying not just the beautiful object but an experience and a story that will always be yours...
Olive and Niall’s story...
For their 25th wedding anniversary Olive and Niall commissioned 2 rings. One was to remodel Olives 10th Anniversary ring into a more contemporary version of the original design and the second ring was designed to compliment and fit alongside it.

Remodelled 10th anniversary ring and new 25th wedding anniversary ring

“To mark the occasion of our 25th wedding anniversary we decided to commission a ring as a companion piece to a ring we had made for our 10th wedding anniversary. Bespoke was the way forward as what we wanted was very unique as the two rings needed to fit together. We've admired Amanda's work for many years and now was the perfect opportunity to have something made by her. Amanda's knowledge and skill as a jewellery designer and maker provided us with great insight into the possibilities of the design and the process of making. We were intimately involved in the design process every step of the way. It was a thoroughly enjoyable experience with an end result that was truly unique and which exceeded our expectations.” - Olive and Niall Healy
