Look at archived designs Here you find other designs suited for Made to Measure orders: See Fantasy Chains, Crystal Chains, Fairy Chains and Memory Chains. Designs arise from requests, a concept or a material. In focus for a while, later overshadowed by new designs. It doesn't mean the designs are lesser or dated, they just don't have my full attention at present. Instead of killing a group of design entirely, they live on in the archive to serve as inspiration or starting point. Or, they can quite simply be made to order.
Look at one-off designs Oftentimes I come across old beads or beautiful bits and pieces of broken jewellery. Not antique old, but vintage and charming. Usually I keep this material around just for inspiration, but sometimes it cries out to be used in a bracelet or an earring. These one offs, or prototypes, are not really meant for sale but for general inspiration. Allthough, on occasion I do sell it - to the right customer!
Look at work samples Many pieces are marked one of a kind, or for inspiration only. It means they are made with vintage, or impossible to replicate, material. The best,for new bespoke unique pieces is to bring in your own trinkets. Or, look for the sign similar can be made! Mixing old and new with found objects or using parts from your own jewellery box will make every piece different.
