I love to make one-off pieces to give as gifts to mark a special occasion or birthday.  I have taken an increasing number of commissions in the last two years. First I discuss the ideas with my customer, make some sketches and then use the ideas and drawings to make exactly what they want using fine silver, vintage finds and gemstones.


Recently I made two honesty seedpod necklaces to mark the launch of Hannah Richell's latest novel 'The Shadow Year'. You can read more about this on Hannah's blog here.

Last summer I took part in a craft swap with Lucy of the wonderfully colourful and hugley popular blog Attic 24. I made a beachcomber necklace for Lucy using fine silver pieces I had made and antique Seaham seaglass. Lucy crocheted me a bag inspired by West Bay, Dorset, You can read Lucy's blogpost about our swap here.

You can read about some of the commissions I have undertaken in the following blogposts:

Tiny silver bell necklace for sixteenth birthday present

Fine silver and enamelled necklace inspired by vintage blue and white ceramics for a special birthday

Three charms and a cluster of gems on a necklace to represent the recipient's three children

January 2013: I have spaces in my commission book at the moment. If you have an idea for a piece you might like me to make then fill in a contact form or drop me an email - emma@minniedog.co.uk.

Many thanks, Emma.
