Bespoke adornments and exclusive collections
How to commission Lenni to help share YOUR story
My approach to working with others is motivated by authenticity, empathy, honesty and a desire and passion for affecting positive transformation in people's lives and in the environment and communities that we live in.
With that in mind...
...I prefer to work through a collaborative process that includes you getting to know a bit about my work, process, materials and methods and me getting to know a bit more about you, your story and needs for the piece/collection, then working up a design and delivery plan together. Of course I am happy to
The following gives you an overview of the process I like to work through, more detail and information about costing and the design brief and development stages is provided in the first design consultation. Please do not hesitate to contact me via this contact form if you have any questions. Sometimes I am unable to take on commissions for certain periods of time based on current workflow and projects. However if you don't ask you will never know and neither will I :) - so please send me a query via the same form about whether or not I am able to take on commissions. I look forward to meeting you and hearing your story and your bespoke adornment and/or exclusive collection needs.

An honest , up front note about cost and budget and my artwork
When you engage an artist/designer/maker to make a bespoke artwork/piece exclusively for you, you are investing in their skill, time and knowledge, not just the materials of the art work/piece.
If you are searching around and just wanting the best , bargain price for a bespoke piece, then I am probably not the right artist/designer/maker for you.
The bespoke pieces that I make for people are not about bargains, but about giving them a unique opportunity to work creatively with an artist/designer/maker , to share their voice/story/moments with the world via an object created exclusively for them.
My process , methods and work is obviously not an appropriate fit for everyone's needs, BUT if you have a specific budget that you need to work within then be upfront about this in our initial chat and we can work together on designs/outcomes that fit within that budget.
Please also remember that the storyboard/design meeting and the design brief/development schedule/costing and plan incur non-refundable fees over and above the cost of making the bespoke item. This is detailed above.
