This ring was created when a friend brought some old jewellery for me to re-model. She also had a Sterling Silver ring that was a favourite when she was younger and asked me to re-produce it but accentuating the design more. I used the metal from the old jewellery and added a diamond that came from a ring she never wore. The challenge was to make the ring to fit the finger and to bend the metal to produce the right curve. But with a little perseverance it came together but needed adjusting as the point at the back was not sitting comfortably on the finger. It is quite a stunning ring with the diamond adding sparkle.
Diamond: 4mm diameter
Over the last few years, Julie has both created and re-created some lovely pieces for me. She provides a personal service, discussing your ideas and contributing her own. Some of the jewellery she has made from scratch, to either my design, hers, or a collaboration. I love the new life she has brought to some old and precious family heirlooms and gems in tired settings, remodelling them for current use, such as turning a pair of clip on ear-rings into some very attractive drops for pierced ears, which I wear a great deal....
