Commissions

I do accept commissioned work in my various art forms! For serious inquiries, please email me at syrakousina (at) gmail.com.

SEWING:

I used to sew almost full-time for income, but the stress and workload became too much, and I realized my quality was suffering for it. I am happy to discuss commissioned sewing work for Greek, Roman, and Byzantine clothing only at this time. I am happy to provide a consultation for your own project for free, including pattern advice and pointers on where to shop.

My current rates are $25/hr, plus material cost. My average plain linen tunic costs about $60, a full 2 layer, heavily trimmed Byzantine set can cost upwards of $500-$1000 depending on materials. I refuse to work in polyester or other synthetics to make it “cheaper”. You will hate me for it in the long run, trust me.

ICONOGRAPHY:

Icon commissions are accepted. Please understand that these take months, and scroll requests need to be to me at least 3 months before the date of presentation to allow for full varnishing. I prefer to not do my own calligraphy, either, so keep that in mind as well if this is going to be an award.  I do use period pigments and materials, so the cost can be rather high in addition to the amount of time that has to go into them. Most icons start around $200, with the average at $400. Scrolls I do for a donation in the cost of the panel  as long as I receive confirmation from the kingdom’s signet that it is in fact, a scroll, and not a personal purchase.

SILK BANNERS

My price for a 7 1/2′ banner is $150. Full color. I can go smaller, or as large as 45″x90″ at the largest my frame can take. Price is determined by banner size, not so much work load unless it’s a highly technical design, like my mantle.

 

METALWORK AND JEWELRY:

I am not taking commissions for jewelry at this time, until I’m better at what I do. Because of the nature of my husband’s job, it’s super hard for us to be able to provide turnaround times. Thank you for asking. 🙂
