Karen Bandy Studio

Custom Orders

If you love my work but it’s already sold, or you want a piece made just for you, please contact me directly. I work personally with you to create original paintings and jewelry.

Most of the jewelry and paintings that are in 'Portfolio' are already being worn and enjoyed by my clients and collectors, but they are ideas that I wanted to share with you to serve as inspiration for new designs or paintings.

Due to the rarity and uniqueness of most precious gems and due to the fact that I only create one-of-a-kind designs; I may not be able to make an exact duplicate for you. But there are options. A similar gem might work for you, and a variation on the design or a similar painting is possible. It’s best to contact me so we can discuss the possibilities.

Here's how a jewelry commission works:

After hearing about your wants and desires, you send me a deposit. I will conduct a world-wide gemstone search, finding the right gem or diamond  for you, or we can work with gems that you already own. After doing sketches, I make a wax model for you to try on with gems in place. Even if it's a gift for someone else, you'll get to see in 3D what the design will look and feel like. Small changes can be made at that time as well. I always reassure people that I have a good idea what they want before doing a time-consuming wax model. 

Everything, including the wax model is made by hand, and you are ensured a one-of-a-kind design that is truly yours and fits you and your lifestyle. 

Here's how a painting commission works:

I’m discovering that I love to paint your animals. I work from photos that you send me, or if you live in Bend I can come take my own photos. We choose the best photo to work from, agree on the size, and then I work in my unique style to paint your beloved animal. You can see examples of that style under ‘Paintings' or 'Portfolio'. Prices start at $450 for a 12×12 acrylic on panel. The next size up is 16×16  for $725 and 24×24 for $1500.

I appreciate your interest in my jewelry designs and paintings, and look forward to coming up with something equally beautiful for you or your loved one to enjoy. Please call 541-388-0155, or email karen@karenbandy.com  25 NW Minnesota Ave Bend, Or 97703
