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 On Her Finger Now

We met at the Starbucks close to his office at Winnipeg Square and discussed the design.  At his dining room table, we selected the perfect Diamonds.  She was out working that Saturday afternoon.  You saw the Diamond he chose.

While we were all waiting for spring to arrive in what seemed like an endless winter, our goldsmiths worked to create this beauty. He took part in each stage, ensuring it was just everything he wanted because she deserves the best.

Seasonal Enjoyment

I really love taking pictures of my work.  I spend time looking around my world – sometimes inside, sometimes outside and try to find something magical that will bring the beauty of our jewellery and our environment together.

 

Every season offers a special view.  I think using the seasons as my backdrop offers part of the story too.  It tells the story about the time of year when the jewellery gift was bestowed.

Taking pictures of my work and sharing those pictures with you is also my way of honouring the true craftspeople I work with.  Gemologists and goldsmiths who take pride in the designing and creation of these precious, sometimes delicate, always spectacular works of art.IMG_0069
