This open titanium ring was murder to make, but it’s finally done. I made it for Charley, who is a paramedic and avid skydiver in Switzerland. I forged the open band out of the titanium bar that once held his leg together after an unfortunate landing. A recycled blue sapphire is set in 14k white gold and fastened with a 14k yellow gold rivet. All recycled materials.
Michael Douglas of the famous Face Mug asked me to make this lovely enamel piece by Chris Hierholzer into a sterling silver pendant. I was honored to do this, but it was a bit daunting to add to another artist’s work. It made me feel a bit like he was looking over my shoulder and telling me “No, you’re doing it all wrong!”. But I’ve tried my best to go with the wonderful whimsy of the piece and hope I didn’t do it too wrong.
The secret is out. A little while ago I made this 18k gold, sapphire, and diamond engagement ring for the American Thomas, who used it to propose to the English Hazel on New Year’s Eve. And she said Yes!!! Love is a wonderful thing.
Finished this custom piece today, but I’m afraid I can’t show more than a glimpse. Sssssssshhh it’s a surprise!
These light colored amethysts were brought to me by Laraine, who wanted me to turn them into a simple pair of silver earrings. I know, they’re violet, but some folks like to refer to them as pink amethysts. I think they’re beautiful no matter what the color is called.
Made this custom 10 year anniversary ring recently. It is 100% recycled and took a double-take on my end, as Lynn’s engagement and wedding bands were made of royal yellow rather than regular yellow gold. (there’s a subtle variation in color – royal yellow leans more to green gold) So here it is: 18k royal yellow gold, 18k palladium white gold, and 10 .05ct F-G VS premium cut diamonds, all recycled.
