What is Cosmic Artifact ~ ?

Cosmic Artifact is an ongoing collection of handmade jewels and one-of-a-kind custom pieces, crafted and curated in Naarm (Melbourne) by Grace Griffin.

 

Tell me more about your Wax Carving Workshops...

A variety of workshops are now available to learn how to carve your own ring from jewellers wax. Choose from one or two sessions and learn the art of wax carving for jewellery, then polish your ring in sterling silver (or have it finished for you). More informations can be found via the Wax Carving Workshops page.

 

I would like something custom, something cosmic...  What is possible ~ ?

I am open to all ideas for custom jewels that you may have in mind ~ please visit the Custom page for an insight into the process for Custom pieces, and to view a selection of previous commissions.

 

Why are all Signature Collection pieces made-to-order ~ ?

I only make what is necessary, as a more sustainable approach to creating an abundance of stock in advance....

Timing-wise, this means you may have to be that little bit more patient, while your piece is made by hand, especially for you. I work with specialised jewellers wax to carve each piece from scratch, then cast your item in your choice of precious metal.

The approximate timing is listed within each item description. Please visit the Make Times / Shipping page for further time guides.

 

Can I modify an existing design from your collection ~ ?

Most of the time, yes ~ ! Because each piece is made-to-order, I can offer some flexibility with existing designs. Some variations include ~ alternate/additional carvings, engraving, and creating your piece in gold instead of silver.

Please be in touch below and I'll see what I can do ~ !

  

What kind of materials do you work with, and could I get my item in G~O~L~D ~ ?

My metal of choice is sterling silver (.925), although I am open to requests in gold karat variations. Please send an enquiry mentioning your desired piece + karat value I'll see what's possible.

 

Do you set gem stones ~ ?

The Signature Collection will soon accompany Australian Boulder Opal in upcoming designs ~ stay tuned ~ !

 

Where are your pieces made ~ ?

All pieces are designed, handcrafted and hand-finished by me in my Melbourne studio. In addition, all suppliers are local, which is geographically sustainable and also allows timing to be kept to a premium in terms of turn-around.

 

How do I determine my ring size ~ ?
