A recent commission that I enjoyed working on was when a client brought along a costume ring to my workshop which she really enjoyed wearing. This costume piece used three rings with paste stones. She wanted to re-create the idea of the ring with precious metals and semi-precious stones.
Together we chose the stones that would compliment each other and would be able to be worn individually or together as a fantastic looking stacked ring.
The images show both the original ring and the final resulting ring made in 18ct yellow gold with green and pink tourmalines and smokey quartz. It was fun working with more unusual stones and the client was pleased with the result.
This ring showed that not only can you commission jewellery for an important event, you can be involved in having something made simply for your own enjoyment.
