Custom Designs & Originals
Artisans - Metalsmiths Askjel & Birte of Urweg combine a multitude of ancient and modern Metalsmithing Arts with their extensive knowledge of  traditional motifs. Creating original custom jewelry designs tailored to your unique requests.  Let us help design and create a custom design of  wearable Art  just for you, your Group or Organization. 
Creating a Custom piece need not be daunting nor expensive,  we can make the process easy and enjoyable. We provide a personal service from the initial consultation to the delivery of the finished work. Each custom design is an original piece of art, created  exclusively for the individual client, never to be duplicated. Every step of the creative process from original line art to finished pieces of  Jewelry is done by us.  To begin, a potential client should  familiarize themselves with our work found on these webpages. This will give you an idea of our general design style as well as inspire some ideas for the creation of your concepts. Look closely at pieces that are of the same type as you are interested in. 

Commission Jobs
Larger projects such as Weddings, Clan Badges, Re-enactment and Theater Groups or Organizations requiring multiple pieces and volume orders are also welcomed. We operate our own in house foundry and casting facilities. As well as a complete metalsmithing workshop capable of handling such larger production projects in a timely manner. We are aware of  our clients needs of scheduling and deadlines. Our work may be found with Collectors, Galleries, Living Historical Museums, the Entertainment Industry, and professional Reenactment Groups throughout the U.S. and Europe. As stated above, a potential client should  familiarize themselves with our work found on these webpages. This will give you an idea of our general design style.

Creating an Original

Rough Design to Finished Jewelry

In creating custom designs, we will begin by developing line art drawings from your original design ideas. Consulting with you until a design is decided upon. Take into account our style of work and realize that we can not step into the art style of  another artist. Upon the selection of the final design, a final price and time schedule is arranged, a deposit made, and the work scheduled. Remember also that as much as we would like it to be, design time is not free. Exact time figures to completion vary depending on size and complexity of the project. Major modification will be made only after consultation with the client. Urweg reserves the right to make minor modifications to the selected basic layout, as are determined to be consistent with good design and quality workmanship. 

Upon acceptance of the art, the client agrees to provide an amount equal to 50% of the total cost of the project. Or a portion as agreed to in advance.
This includes the cost of the design work already completed.  The balance is due upon completion. The quoted price of each custom design includes all artwork, molds, masters and originals paid for by the client, excluding copyrights on Urweg original Art.  Should final payment not be received within ninety (90) days, or as previously arranged, the completed design, object(s), mold(s), master(s) and art  remain the property of  Urweg, and any deposit made is forfeit.

Urweg retains full copyrights to the design(s) of its original art and art metalwork. No commercial reproduction.
The customer agrees to allow photographs of the finished project to be used in  any future promotions by  Urweg or its associates.
Urweg strives to produce the highest quality pieces of enduring Jewelry. All custom designs created by URWEG  are created to be durable and of  professional quality. We  guarantee our workmanship and materials for one year under normal use and care.

Thank you for considering Urweg for your special project!
