At Jennifer Vitalia Designs we believe time & the creative process is a most precious commodity. Creating a usable piece of timeless, personal art requires intricate, hand-painted detailing; and the result is a piece reflective of oneself.

LEARNING YOUR STYLE AND GOALS FOR YOUR UNIQUE PIECE.

DURING THIS TIME WE GATHER IMPORTANT DETAILS FOR YOUR REQUEST. A DESIGN PHONE CONSULTATION WHICH WILL ALLOW US TO PROVIDE THE RIGHT OPTIONS TO YOU FOR APPROVAL. NOW THAT WE KNOW ALL DETAILS WE CAN BEGIN SOURCING / LOCATING YOUR PIECE. THIS CONSULTATION IS A SEPARATE SERVICE WITH ANON - REFUNDABLE DEPOSIT OF $275

SOURCING / LOCATE OCCURS AS PART OF THE CONSULT AND IS THE PROCESS OF FINDING THE PIECE THAT MEETS YOUR VISION.

THE SOURCING OCCURS DURING THE CONSULTATION. ONCE WE HAVE  DETAILS ABOUT YOUR STYLE, COLOR PREFERENCES, DIMENSIONS, INSPIRATION AND ANYTHING ELSE WE MAY NEED, WE BEGIN TO LOOK FOR PIECES THAT FIT YOUR VISION.  JVD USES AN EXTENSIVE NETWORK OF ANTIQUE /MODERN DEALERS, AUCTIONS, IMPORTERS AND ANYTHING IN BETWEEN TO FIND YOUR ENVISIONED  PIECE!

THIS STAGE OFTEN MOVES QUICKLY (PARTICULARLY,  IF WE FIND THE PIECE AT AN AUCTION. IN THE SAME WAY YOU SAW “IT” AND KNEW  IT IS MEANT FOR YOU, SO DID OTHERS). COMMUNICATION DURING THIS TIME IS VIA TEXT. IT IS THE  ONLY PART OF PROCESS THAT OCCURS BY TEXT  BECAUSE IT OFTEN REQUIRES IMMEDIATE RESPONSE. 

 

WHEN LOOKING AT AN IMAGE SENT TO YOU, KEEP IN MIND THAT THIS WILL BE TRANSFORMED. THE COLOR AND HARDWARE ARE NOT A CONCERN-- THAT WILL BE CHANGED. LOOK AT THE BONES OF THE OPTION- THE CURVES, LINES, HEIGHT, STYLE, ETC. 

IF YOU DON'T LOVE AN OPTION SENT OVER, YOU  SIMPLY REPLY "PASS".  YOU WILL KNOW WHEN YOU SEE IT- AND WHEN  YOU DO, REPLY WITH "APPROVE". ONCE A PIECE IS APPROVED, AN INVOICE WILL BE SENT TO YOU. IMAGES WILL BE SENT VIA TEXT ONCE THE PIECE ARRIVES AT THE STUDIO. THE PIECE WILL THEN  MOVE TO THE PREP STAGE.

IMPORTANT: IT IS IMPORTANT THAT YOU CHECK AND PAY THE INVOICE IMMEDIATELY. NON-PAYMENT MAY RESULT IN LOSING YOUR APPROVED PIECE BEFORE THE SCHEDULED PICK- UP. UNFORTUNATELY, THAT WILL STILL COUNT AS A COMPLETED LOCATE. BY THIS TIME IN THE PROCESS: TIME, NEGOTIATIONS, APPROVALS AND PICKING UP ARRANGEMENTS ARE ALL IN PLACE AND SCHEDULED. JVD WILL NO LONGER CONTINUE TO WORK ON THE PROPOSED ORDER AND NO REFUNDS WILL BE MADE.

PREP AND RESTORATION IS THE SPA SEGMENT OF THE PROCESS:  SANDING, SCULPTING, NAILS AND POLISH. IT TAKES A BIT OF TIME, BUT IT'S IMPORTANT FOR THE FINISHED PRODUCT!

PREP TIME VARIES FROM ONE PIECE TO ANOTHER, BUT WITH ALL PIECES, IT IS THE STAGE THAT TAKES UP THE MOST TIME. HERE THEY ARE SANDED, IMPERFECTIONS WORKED ON, PRIMED FOR FINISHING COLOR-EACH OF THESE REQUIRING A SPECIFIC WAIT TIME. YOUR PIECE IS ALSO IN LINE AS OTHER PIECES ARE BEING WORKED ON. IT IS IN GOOD COMPANY AS IT WAITS ITS NEXT TURN.

ONCE YOU CHOOSE YOUR PIECE/PIECES' COLOR, WE WORK TO BREATHE THE NEW LIFE YOU HAVE CHOSEN FOR IT.  

THE FINISHING STAGE OCCURS ONCE PREP IS FINALIZED AND YOU HAVE CHOSEN AND APPROVED YOUR PIECES' PAINT.  DURING THE FINAL PAINT LAYERS YOU WILL RECEIVE IMAGES . ONCE COMPLETED, A FINAL IMAGE WILL BE SENT FOR APPROVAL AND AN APPROVAL CONSULT WILL BE REQUIRED BEFORE THE PIECE IS PREPARED FOR SHIPPING. 

THIS STAGE IS ALSO THE TIME TO BEGIN LOOKING FOR A DELIVERY COMPANY. WE WILL NOTIFY YOU WHEN YOUR PIECE IS ABOUT FOUR WEEKS FROM COMPLETION SO  THAT YOU CAN MOVE FORWARD WITH SCHEDULING. KEEP IN MIND THAT THIS IS A PROCESS AND REQUIRES TIME. 

TO CONFIRM ALL INFORMATION REVIEWED, A FINAL DESIGN CONSULTS AND ANY RECAPS THEREAFTER ARE  RECORDED.
