The term "agreement" may be better from a marketing standpoint than "contract." You will want to cover what is expected of each party at each step of the process, including how payments will be made and what happens if the client cancels the order before finished jewelry is delivered.
I often suggest that jewelry makers who do custom work include approvals at various stages, such as the design/sketch stage, materials (if the customer wants to approve the actual stones or beads, for example) and the delivery of the finished piece.
To get the ball rolling, you might draft a document that you feel is fair and contains key provisions, written in your own language. Then make an appointment with the attorney to draft the actual template.
