Remodelled Sapphire Ring
May 23, 2018

Earlier in the year I was asked if I could remodel a very plain set baguette cut sapphire engagement ring. The ring had belonged to  the client’s mother and therefore held significant sentimental value.  Unfortunately the setting was not to her liking and it was sadly not being worn. After some research and discussion a ...

Labradorite Tear Drop Ring
June 28, 2017

July 12, 2017

In agreement with Oscar Wilde’s quote, I love making these floral inspired pieces blossom for special occasions. I have made Violets, Daisies, Forget-me-nots, Lilies, Apple Blossom, Narcissi, Snowdrops, Lily of the Valley, Vine and Ivy leaves.
