Custom Work has become a very significant part of Tempi.This keeps my creative juices flowing and skills sharpened! Individual horse owners, pet owners, small companies, museums and organizations are reaching out for a special piece of jewelry or momento design and we can provide that very affordably. Once you have a photo or graphic as the design, the rest is just steps. You decide what the article will be, what size, and what metal to use. I can provide the time line and a quote.
Once ready to start a 50% deposit is paid and the wax up begins. Detailed photos will be emailed as the wax pattern progress, and once you approve the final look, the casting is done. I polish and re send photos, and it's time to ship the sample / prototype. Time lines can vary based on the complexity of the design and time of year, but 2-4 + weeks for custom work is average. Curious on the numbers? Example: a buckle to fit a 1 .25 inch leather belt -- art work would start at $150, plus the casting in metal for that typical item [$195 total]. Each custom order is evaluated for cost and a quote is given.
I do have the most fun creating!! Please send an email to start a diaogue.
