From Sketch to Reality

It's a beautiful day that we are happily spending in our favourite spot(our studio). With the warm weather finally here, we are working on a number of unique rings for our soon to be engaged and married couples. Over the years, we've noticed that custom orders, especially wedding and engagement projects, give us the most meaning to our work. Sketching designs, together with the bride and groom, and creating a story that they wear for the rest of their lives... its beyond words. It's poetry.

The process first begins with initial sketches based on the couple's description and inspirations. 




After this, our designs are created in digital form for the customer's approval. 






Following this, the piece is created in wax and cast using the desired metal. 


 After this, the cast ring is sanded, polished, set with stones and brought to life. 

Custom engagement rings are a great option for those with a specific vision and desire for a ring that is truly one of a kind.

Studio Life

I've been in the studio all week getting ready for INLAND, and finishing pieces for my dear clients in the US and UK (you guys are amazing!). Putting the final touches on pieces and packaging has to be my favourite part of the process. Everything comes together like a perfect painting. With that said, I thought I'd share what my packaging process looks like!

Choosing the Ring Box

Lately I've been wildly obsessed with everything vintage. This week its specifically small, French, vintage inspired velvet ring boxes. Surprisingly enough these beauties are available only in a handful of shops. Below are some of my favourites.
