Product Development

We welcome the opportunity to consult with museums to create reproduction jewelry from your collections under a licensing agreement. Each piece sold will benefit the museum of origin in the form of royalties.

CONCEPT

With curatorial approval, everything from original jewelry and artifacts to architectural details in your museum can be inspiration for jewelry designs. Our product development team is adept at discerning timeless designs that will inspire museum goers to take a piece of history home.

 

DESIGN

We will create a detailed drawing from photographs for curatorial approval including the proposed size, materials and price range of the final product.

 

MODEL

Upon acceptance of the design, a model is carved by one of our experienced model-makers.

 

SAMPLE

Sample castings are made from the model. They are then polished, finished and sent to the museum of origin for final approval.

 

LICENSING

When approval for the finished sample is obtained, we request information for the descriptive card which will accompany each piece. A licensing agreement is completed which assures that royalties will be paid for each piece sold.

 

PRODUCTION

It takes approximately six weeks to complete the initial production run once we have the approval for the finished sample.
