The Custom Design Process


Each custom made piece at Christie Grace Designs becomes a partnership between Christie Grace and the client. It begins with a consultation in Christie’s home studio, on the phone, on FaceTime, Google Chat or Skype. This initial session provides essential information about the clients taste, style, preferences, personality and lifestyle. All these elements are carefully taken into consideration to create a design that uniquely reflects and represents the client. Photographs and drawings are used to finalize the direction and ideas and usually a wax is made to confirm the size, and style of the piece. The wax also gives the client a chance to visualize the project, for any final adjustments. When Christie and the client are both happy, the inspiration becomes a reality and the process is complete.
