I recently completed a statement Strata ring and necklace set in 18ct gold for my client Sophie, re-using rubies which were family heirlooms – giving a new lease of life to gems that would otherwise be unworn and languishing inside a drawer.
Sophie liked the Strata collection designs, and was involved in the design process to place the rubies and diamonds within each design in a way that would be fun and unusual.
Sophie wrote of the commissioning process:
“I’m delighted with the ring and pendant and I’m loving wearing them. I also really enjoyed the design process and seeing the final pieces develop. Clara was really responsive to my ideas, and I felt very involved every step of the way. I was excited about Clara’s designs and her suggestions were sensitive to making sure my grandmother’s rubies were showcased in the best way possible.”
It was a pleasure to be a part of this special project for Sophie.
