Smokey quartz Ring 9k gold
Re- purposing the clients stone, i made a setting from wax to fit the stone and cast in 9ct gold. It has a beautiful buttery brush finish to compliment the light hues of this beautiful stone.
Pink sapphire Lotus Necklace
This was a commission to compliment other pink sapphire pieces that I had previously made for this client. The handmade pendant is gold plated with a paisley pattern embossed on the reverse with a split bail that can be removed and the sapphires are hand knotted on silk for secure necklace.
Tourmaline and Aquamarine Hoop Earrings
Don't get me started, I just love making earrings. I dream about them. Look at the colours. These were a pleasure to make and the asymetrical stone balance create a whimsical, unique look.
9 stone Diamond ring 18k gold
Made using a cad file, I repurposed the clients five stones and added more into a unique design to create a much bigger looking ring. I love the almost deco look I created with the design.
Zircon ring 9K gold
Using a clients beautiful stone that she purchased on the side of the road from a local miner, i made a setting to compliment the stone and show it for the beauty that it is. the open textured claws let the light into the stone and really add to the delicate colour of the piece.
Double Diamond 18k gold- Triple Band Ring
A sentimental ring made with heirloom family diamonds. This ring was created in memorial of my clients parents and their relationship. The three bands and three claws represent the mother/father daughter and the two brilliant cut diamonds represent the mother and daughter. This was such beautiful commission to work on.
18k White/yellow Ring and 18k Yellow Studs
Re-purposing my clients diamond ring- I removed the stones, melted down her band and formed a new band and made the setting and studs. The white gold band is left raw with no rhodium plating to retain the grey look of white gold against the yellow of the setting. Each piece was purposely made with a very organic/raw look. The setting and earrings are wax castings- with lines retained from the wax and unpolished which creates a lovely look against the refined brilliance of the stones.
Aquamarine in 18k gold basket/claw setting
I loved making this ring, it was quite a challenge and i'm happy to share that it was by no means easy. I made this out of wax- I love wax and my thought always go there first with any commission. Perhaps I made a rod for my own back- but I wanted this ring to have a more organic look to the setting rather rather than very structured metal. I first made this setting is wax and cast in silver- refined- made a mold and then cast in gold. It took three casting attempts due to the size but eventually we got there. I made the basket at the bottom to accomodate the cut and depth and to seat it securely. I was so happy with the end result and so was my client.
Mixed Gemstone Cluster Ring 9k Gold
I cant claim to have made this this ring. I designed it with my client and then had a CAD file made- which means that the ring is drawn up on a computer file and then 3d printed. I am so happy with it though!! it was a whopper.
18k Gold Tourmaline Ring
Another joyful challenge. I made this ring in silver- as it was huge- made a mold and cast in 18k gold. I lOVED making this. Its a beauty!! Made with a clients heirloom stone.
Drop Opal Earrings 18k gold
Each claw basket was made to size for each individual stone and then joined to make these earrings. The second loop of the drop sits over the stud of the top opal, so that the drops can be removed and the earrings worn as studs too. they were made with screw backs for extra security. These earrings took hours of work, real blood, sweat and literally tears went into these....and they were so worth it! They were made using the clients opals.
Moss Aquamarine 18k gold /Sterling silver
This ring style are hands down my favourite rings to make. They are just so satisfying and the mix of metals always gives a beautiful finish and look to the ring. This ring was made with a domed moss aquamarine cabachon. Set in an 18k bezel on a chunkier, half round band.
Greek Coin Brooch/Pendant
This piece was commissioned especially to go with a beautiful Hermes scarf. It seemed such a shame to limit it to just a brooch though, so I made a replica of the coin and scaled it down slightly and created a chain loop on the back so that it could be worn as a necklace too. This piece was made in silver and 22ct gold plated, it hangs on a gold fill chain.
Diamond Set Band 18k
This 18k band was made to match and compliment the clients diamond baguette existing wedding band. This would sit above the wedding band and engagement ring as an eternity ring for their wedding anniversary. The middle stone was a clients stone that I removed from another piece of jewellery. The clients stone is a slightly greyer colour than the other diamonds, instantly distinguishing it from the others. This is a band I had been meaning to make for a while and it is now part of my wedding collection.
18k Gold Sapphire Claw Ring
This ring was made to fit a clients unset Sapphire, I sat the claw setting onto my signature Adorn textured band. The mix of the texture on the band the brush finish of the claws worked beautifully in 18k gold and the stone was open enough in the claw settings to really show off its unusual blue/green colours.
18k Gold Aquamarine Engagement Ring
This ring was ordered by a client to propose to his girlfriend with. I sourced a hand cut Emerald shape Aquamarine stone and made the band and claws to the clients specifications in a buttery 18k yellow gold. The stone was purposefully set to sit slightly proud so that a wedding band could sit flush against it. The bride to be said yes and loved the ring.
Angel Lady Earrings
I first made these earrings years ago when I was really just starting out making jewellery. I started off beading and then quickly moved onto saw piercing, which I still love to do. I made a pair of these earrings as a one off for a local artist who was having an exhibition. Years later, she still wears and loves them. They were noticed by a client who asked me to make some for her. It was a pleasure to make them again and I made the pattern for this pair much more intricate. I am thinking of making a whole collection when I have the time. Made and hand cut with 1mm sterling silver.
Black Earth Gold Nugget Pendant
An oldie but a goodie, this necklace was from one of my first ever cast collections and requested by a client in 18k gold. I love seeing old pieces re-surfacing. Good jewellery design should be timeless and never get old.
