On The Bench | Signet Anniversary Rings

 

I had the pleasure of creating a pair of custom signet rings for an Orange County couple in honor of their 25 year anniversary! The husband [Jerry] came fully equipped to our first meeting with ideas, Pinterest photos and drawings, of what they had in mind.  I love when potential clients have a clear vision of what they want!  One cool thing about this project is, Jerry found me by searching “signet rings” on Google!  Lately, I really haven’t done much Instagramming nor blogging!  I think that’s pretty neat that my little website pops up in search engines!

Back to the rings.  Both are hand fabricated!  No cast parts!  I say this with enthusiasm because, hand fabricating jewelry and (other objects) is my favorite way to work!  It is a slower and challenging process, yes, but, I enjoy being involved from start to finish.  I want my hands to touch every part of the jewelry I am making! The engraving on these signet rings are, however, outsourced; that is one metalsmithing skill I have yet to dive into!

I’m not going to write much more on this project, as I am exhausted from my getting up at the crack of dawn, for the last 5 days, to feed and play with our new 2 month old puppy! So, I will let the photos talk for me!  Enjoy…and thanks for reading!

To Thee, I Wed.

I’ve always known that I wanted to make our wedding rings, should my boyfriend and I, ever to get married.  On Jan 2, 2016,  at the Grand Canyon National Park, my then boyfriend, now finance, proposed to me.  Throughout our 5 years of dating, we have talked often about what our rings would look like, always leaning more to the design of simplicity.  Practical.

As much as I seek out simple aesthetics, I am often attracted to objects, and people, that are rich in detail; seen or unseen.  Knowing this, I now understand that there is a definite need to include, carefully, a sentimental detail in our bands of union.  A detail that speaks to our connection, and sometimes disconnection, our troubles and our joys.  ‘A daunting task’ I would usually say.  But somehow, this obligation warms me.
