14K carved wedding band + emerald band

The premise behind this storybook ring was four elements (earth, water, fire, air). Plus we hid tiny hearts in each scene. Because love! These are the two wedding bands together: Alan’s carved and cast into 14K white gold, and Kate’s 14K with a tiny emerald.

I initially did the ring shiny, which alarmed Alan a little bit as I’m guessing he was unused to wearing shiny things on his hand. So then we decided a matte finish would tone down the brightness and also maybe bring out the detail of the carving more.

It’s a hard call. I really like the matte, but I also like the shiny. I like it ALL.

Tulip brooch - sterling silver

I am going to be out of the studio from mid-June to late July. With my current workload (extremely high! Yikes!), I’m running about 5-6 weeks to deliver on orders. I think that a deadline order date of May 9th will ensure a mid-June delivery without too much insanity on my part. And of course, I’ll be back up and running by the end of July and taking orders as per usual.

Hope everyone is having a great spring so far! My plants are all coming up and it’s so bleeding exciting. My tulips multiplied underground and are awesome this year.
