Custom Ring

Today, is September 19th.

Not only is it my son's 7th birthday (happy b-day buddy), but it is a repeat customer's 19th wedding anniversary. I don't think that is a "golden" anniversary, but special non-the-less - 19 years on the 19th, wow!

This wonderful husband, we will call him "D", contacted me the other day with a vision of a ring for his wife. "D" requested a simple sterling silver band with some light texture & "prison" font equaling 19 slashes to go around the band.

What a great idea!

After some trial runs on copper, the sterling ring was created. "D" was really pleased when he saw the ring & told me about the card he made to go with it. So much love - I love it!!
Happy Anniversary, "D".

Bridesmaids Gifts...

A couple of months ago, I had the privilege of making my cousin's bridesmaids necklaces. It was an honor to make the colorful enamel stacked necklaces for her.

They are supposed to be a little off kilter (as shown in the picture) and the colors she chose matched perfectly with the beautiful dresses. Seemed to be perfect.

Last night, I sold 3 necklaces to a repeat customer for her bridesmaids. They were all enamel and all a bit different to fit with their personalities. What a great idea. It doesn't always have to match. Of course, I forgot to take pictures of the necklaces :(, but I was flattered and honored. I hope she sends me pictures....
