I have just completed a wedding ring commission for a client.
It is a really touching story; She had some gold jewellery from her deceased mother, which meant too much to sell but she did not want to wear.
We re-used this emotionally charged raw material to make the wedding band. Together with some new gold, I melted down the jewellery and and cast it into sand. The result is a statement ring that contains many layers of history from her past. The texture of the melting process is apparent, contrasting with smooth surfaces .
The ‘Histories’ ring celebrates this union with something new, made from something old : a beautiful symbol of love, renewal and remembrance.
Available to commission, please get in touch for further details.
