ONE OF CHRISTCHURCH'S LEADING JEWELLERY DESIGNERS
TURNING A STORY INTO A MASTERPIECE: THE PROCESS OF JEWELLERY DESIGN
As a master of the craft, Marc understands that the enduring emotional significance of each piece of jewellery he designs is just as important as the sophistication and quality of the final product. What matters most to you will be the first point of reference in the bespoke design process. Your story will be what inspires Marc as he implements his design.
Only the most highly skilled NZ jewellery designers can intimately understand your story and bring it to life in a bespoke piece of jewellery. With the knowledge that his work will come to represent a long-cherished memory, Marc always works with an unmatched standard of quality.
Along with offering his own unparalleled designs, Marc can work with you to create a bespoke design, or remodel an old piece of your jewellery for you to treasure forever.
It will all start with a hand-drawn sketch. When you are happy with a design, Marc will work with precision machinery that transforms this sketch into a magnificent fulfilment of that form. From here, every component gets assembled by hand and completed with the highest quality finish.
This blend of time-honoured craftsmanship and modern technology is part of what enables Marc to be the award-winning designer that he is. Whether your story is about love, celebration or remembrance - it will be translated forever in a deeply meaningful statement piece of fine jewellery.
If you own a piece of jewellery that you feel needs a new lease on life, bring it to Marc Bendall. With the help of Marc’s expertise and talent, you can find a way to refresh a tired or worn-out piece of jewellery.
When you bring your old piece of jewellery to his Christchurch Studio, your desires will come first in the new design. Marc will sketch some ideas to give you an idea of how it can be recreated, then will bring it to life in his workshop.
Bring your broken or worn out 9ct gold, 18ct gold, or Platinum piece of jewellery to Marc Bendall. Transparency and honesty are the most crucial factors when it comes to jewellery repair. If a repair is achievable, Marc will make it happen.
Marc Bendall also offers ring resizing, rhodium plating, stone setting checks, re-tipping or replacing claws, cleaning, polishing, and insurance valuations.
FINE JEWELLERY MATERIALS
In creating some of the most sophisticated pieces among NZ jewellery designers, Marc uses only the highest quality materials. Your jewellery will get made with the most precious metals: yellow, rose, or white gold, sterling silver, platinum, palladium, or a combination!
