He’s a pretty awesome guy.

He’s a pretty awesome guy.  I know ’cause his wife’s whole body smiles when she talks about him.  They’ve moved lots because of his important work but the boys and her are ok with that ’cause he’s a pretty awesome guy. That’s why she wanted an awesome memento to commemorate the next move – for hisContinue reading “He’s a pretty awesome guy.”

Making something new with something old

  She had her Mother’s Wedding Ring and gifts from her Father. She wanted to combine them to create a ring to wear with her wedding band. It’s kind of like keeping old friends together but bringing new energy to that friendship. She’s got the yellow gold back – perhaps it will be incorporated intoContinue reading “Making something new with something old”

Happy Anniversary

She loved it.  We set it in her original ringContinue reading “Happy Anniversary”

So recently, he sat down with me and with one of his designers (yes, he’s in the business of creativity) and they sketchedContinue reading “A Stunning Design”

From Bud to Bloom

I love how this ring came to bloom. Her grandmother bequeathed a ring to her set with 5 diamonds.  Those diamonds became the sentinel stones to her children’s birthstones –  the peridot is for her son, the emerald is for her daughter. Just like the orchids started with buds, so the wax mould was the budding of thisContinue reading “From Bud to Bloom”
