Layered Leaves Ring
The request was for an oxidised silver band ring with layered leaves wrapping around it. Cut from silver sheet, individual leaves were hand filed and sanded down before each one was curved to fit the base ring and soldered in to place and engraved – a new skill which I had to learn as I went! Continuing the process until all leaves were in place and engraved, I then oxidised the ring to enhance the depth and bring out the detail of the veining.
Hand delivered on the morning of Rosie’s birthday, she posted on Instagram to say that it was ‘the kindest pressie ever from my grandparents made by my Bestie’s mum’ and later messaging me to say ‘Honestly, I can’t express how thankful I am!! You’re so kind to have made it so quickly.’
I really was just pleased to have enabled a landmark birthday to be celebrated as it should be.
