A Peek Inside Our Workshop: The Daily Life in a Jewellery Design Studio
Welcome to our jewellery design studio, Morgan & Co, nestled in Buderim, on the picturesque Sunshine Coast. In this blog, we invite you to step into our creative realm and discover the intricate world of jewellery design and the day in the life of our Buderim studio. Our passion is engagement rings and wedding bands, and the art of remodelling old and pre-loved jewellery. Join us as we unveil the daily life within our studio and provide a glimpse into the craftsmanship, inspiration, and passion that fuels our work.
A Spark of Inspiration
Every day in our jewellery design studio begins with a surge of inspiration. We immerse ourselves in a world of creativity, seeking inspiration from nature's beauty, art, fashion trends, and the unique stories shared by our clients. Each morning we open our beautiful white curtains, let in the morning sun, light our Morgan & Co scented candle and put on some music before we head over to Cafe Vie for our morning almond cappuccino.
Collaborative Design Process
At the heart of our studio lies the collaborative design process. We work closely with our clients, engaging in meaningful conversations to understand their desires, preferences, and personal stories. Throughout the day, we see multiple clients and through sketches, mood boards, and consultations, we bring their dreams to life, capturing their unique love stories in every piece we create. Our main focus is designing a piece that is unique to the wearer, something that will be worn with pride, worn for their lifetime and passed down through generations to come. These consultations are the heart and soul of our design process. You can book your free consultation here.
One of the most unique aspects of our work is selecting the perfect gemstones to adorn our creations. With a keen eye for quality and a deep understanding of gemmology, we curate a diverse collection of ethically sourced diamonds and coloured gemstones. Each gemstone holds its own allure and significance, and we take pride in assisting our clients in choosing the one that resonates with their unique style and symbolism. We have a global network of diamond dealers who we work closely with and trust immensely. We are in the unique position of being able to hand select your diamond so we can ensure it’s of perfect quality each and every time. There is nothing more important to us than you wearing the most perfect and sparkling diamond and each Morgan & Co piece will have a triple excellent and colourless diamond and only the highest quality coloured stones. That is our promise to you.
The Art of Craftsmanship
Once your piece has been designed in-studio, we send your design to our master jewellers who create a computer-aided design (CAD) drawing of your piece. Using sketches, CAD, and hand-carved wax models, they bring their visions to life, allowing clients to visualise the end result. This complementary drawing allows you to view your ring as a professional drawing and understand its details and dimensions. Our master jewellers are a skilled team and the best in the business, they use their keen attention to detail and breathe life into their work. Using their talented hands, from metal casting and setting diamonds to intricate engraving and polishing, each piece undergoes a transformative journey. All using the highest quality metals and ethically sourced diamonds and gemstones.
The Emotional Value of Remodelling
Beyond creating new jewellery, our studio specialises in remodelling old and pre-loved pieces. We understand the sentimental value attached to heirlooms and the desire to give them new life. Guided by our clients' visions, we reimagine and transform these cherished treasures, preserving their emotional significance while infusing them with contemporary design elements. Laura is our studio expert in remodelling previously loved pieces. You can read more about Laura’s work here.
Customisation and Personalisation
In our studio, customisation and personalisation are at the core of our ethos. We believe that jewellery should be a reflection of one's individuality. From handcrafted engravings and unique metalwork to incorporating birthstones or meaningful symbols, we take immense joy in creating one-of-a-kind pieces that resonate with our clients' stories and personalities. Why buy something off the shelf, when you can wear a piece that is unique to you, your love and your life?

At Morgan & Co, we place a strong emphasis on quality control and attention to detail. Each piece undergoes rigorous quality checks to ensure that it meets the highest standards of craftsmanship, durability, and aesthetic excellence. From inspecting gemstone settings to verifying metal purity, the studio's commitment to quality control ensures that every piece leaving their hands is impeccable and ready to be treasured.
Once a custom piece is complete, the studio takes pride in carefully packaging it for collection. The packaging reflects the studio's commitment to providing a memorable experience for clients. From elegant boxes adorned with the studio's logo to thoughtful touches like a personalised note, the packaging adds a touch of luxury and enhances the excitement of receiving a bespoke jewellery creation.
Social Media and Photography
In today's digital age, social media plays a vital role in showcasing the studio's creations and connecting with clients. The studio coordinates social media efforts, curating captivating content that highlights the beauty and craftsmanship of their jewellery. They engage with their audience, sharing behind-the-scenes glimpses, design inspirations, and the stories behind each piece. Through social media, the studio creates a community of jewellery enthusiasts and builds relationships with clients, fostering a sense of connection and appreciation for their work. You can view Morgan & Co's Instagram Handle here.
To showcase their jewellery in the most professional and appealing manner, we organise regular product photoshoots. These photoshoots capture the essence and intricacies of each piece, highlighting its unique design elements and beauty. By collaborating with talented photographers, stylists, and models, the studio creates visually stunning images that reflect the artistry and craftsmanship that go into their jewellery.
The Timeless Legacy of Fine Jewellery
Fine jewellery is not merely an accessory; it carries a legacy that transcends generations. Its enduring beauty and significance make it an heirloom, a symbol of love, celebration, and cherished memories. Fine jewellery pieces are meticulously crafted to stand the test of time, with superior craftsmanship and timeless designs that resonate with the wearer throughout their lifetime and beyond.

Earrings frame the face and bring attention to our most expressive features.
