The Wedding Ring

Filed under: Uncategorized — natha @ 9:25 pm

One of my girlfriends Dawn just got married to an awesome man, Philip and she asked me to make her wedding ring. The cool thing about Dawn is that she is super chill and definitely not a bridezilla. She gave me almost complete creative control. Her only requests were that she wanted some heriloom earrings from her Grandmother incorporated into the design and she wanted a blue center stone that was sustainably sourced.

The earrings were little diamonds with “jackets” consisting of 3 golden leaves. I cut the leaves up into single pieces and began laying out different designs.


Soldering the band

The setting pre polish and stone setting.

Here is the finished ring alongside her engagement ring which is a lovely chunky simple gold band. You see I used 2 of the leaves, the 2 diamonds and a gorgeous blue sapphire.

I also made her wedding necklace with 3 of the other leaves and another blue sapphire. She loved them both- Phew! I think there may be more pressure when you have complete artistic control?

Charmed Ring

If you are in the Bellingham Washington area this coming weekend, come meet me! I’m doing a trunk show at Covet Boutique at 1311 11th St. in historic Fairhaven in Bellingham Washington. I am unveiling the new collections and will of course have many of my most popular pieces on hand as well. This is a great way to see how the lines work with one another.

The lovely Sally Poorman is the hostess with the mostess and here’s what she says about her shop; “I love color and design, handmade products and independent designers, so the shop is a little burst of color and art.” I can’t wait to meet you all and see this gorgeous store!

Amy Esther
is a very cool pottery artist who I’ve featured before. She has a new ETSY shop called AE (Amy Esther) Bead Boutique where she is selling handmade ceramic beads. I especially like these two, chocolate waffle or lemon anyone?
