Making a bespoke piece of jewellery is a honour. Here are a few pieces that I have had the pleasure to make.
My lovely friend Dan is modelling the first ring (the chocolate cake behind him was for a birthday if I remember correctly). This ring was made as a gift to a Gemini man who loves Tribal tattoos. I worked with his beautiful wife (a good friend and very talented make up artist) and finally settled on this design.
Next up is another mans ring, but not a thumb ring this time. It is a chunky silver wedding ring (replacing a previous ring lost in the sea!) Oops! This is one that I made for my brother, so an extra special honour for me. He very kindly sent me a pic of it as I neglected to take a picture of it when I made it. It went all the way to Australia. (my nephew is an amazing artist you can see his picture in the background) And the ring fits!!! Phew! He has been wearing it whilst out training as a volunteer lifeguard and so far it is still there. Job well done.
I call this Minas Dragon. It is a strong dragon with a beautiful peridot set for the eye. I didn’t know how it would turn out, but I think you will agree, it is pretty special. It was intended to be interchangeable as a pendant or a key ring. This took me many hours of carving and redoing and making sure the scales were “just right”. I am very proud of this one.
Not the end of my commissions, but the end of this post at least. A pair of cufflinks that my husband asked me to make for him. He loves them so much he wears them regularly to work and gets LOADS of compliments. So now I stock them in my etsy shop!!! I present to you da da dahhhhhhhhh paper clip cufflinks. I made these in silver but they can also be made in gold.
I think I should follow this up with the commissions that I have made for the ladies. I have quite a few to choose from that I can share with you. Bangles made as bridesmaid gifts, a necklace with a princess cut stone, a backdrop necklace, matching sister rings, dangle textured oxidised earrings and a triquetra pendant for an 18th birthday.
Thank you for reading. Let me know what you think!
