Create a one of a kind commitment ring, redesign an heirloom into something wearable, or have something special made for yourself.
I have 20 years of experience in custom design and love to collaborate in bringing a special piece to life!
I am located in Stockholm, but I also do custom design remotely, using Skype , email and phone calls to communicate with customers all over the world. I offer alternative stones as well as completely conflict free and sustainable diamonds from Canada and Australia.
The process is roughly like this:
-You fill out the contact form to give me a first idea of what you are looking for. Don't worry if you don't know much at this point, we'll figure it out together :-)
-I'll email you with some initial ideas based on the information you gave me, and based on your response we might go back and forth with drawings and photos.
-We meet or talk on skype to look at stone options and gold colors etc.
-Once we settle on a design I will take a deposit for 1/2 the amount. I will do a final drawing and start the wax design.
- You approve the 3d wax model.
- Payment in full due
-The final piece is delivered to you in a beautiful box.
Here you can read about an example of the remote design process:
"I wanted to honor and celebrate myself for my 50th birthday and I had a vision of a ring in my mind but it wasn't fully flushed out. Anytime I spend money on jewelry for myself I only buy from Johanna Torell because her designs are so beautiful,unique and are completely my aesthetic. I contacted Johanna and we worked together to beautifully to design and create the ring of my dreams. Every time I look down at my finger at my gorgeous ring I feel happy. And... the ring actually feels so good on my finger."
"I´m in awe of my ring. It is made of sparkling diamonds from precious heirlooms together with white and red gold, perfectly designed for my personality and stature. It makes me think of the people and stories behind the original stones. It makes me feel beautiful and powerful."
