Jewelry & Photography Commissions

Work directly with East Ruin's owner, Shawna Fitzsimmons, to curate your personal East Ruin Relic. Let us guide you through stylizing, material selection, design, composition, and overall building of a one-of-a-kind creation. Commissions start at $100. (For jewelry commissions, East Ruin will consider incorporating family heirloom gemstones, glass beads, or findings into a final East Ruin Relic. Restrictions apply. For photography commissions, East Ruin is willing to travel within NY, CT, MA, and VT. Travel fees will apply.)

Digitizing 35mm Slides (Starting at $25 per slide depending on condition)

Extremely delicate and close-up photography of treasured historic slides. Images are taken into post-production to heal any damage on slides when possible. At client's request, images can be adjusted for color-correction and cohesion. Final deliverables are high quality, vibrant, print- and online-posting ready files via a USB or shared drive. Original slides are returned to client after job is complete.
