A pair of wedding bands in white gold: His a scene of the ocean on a blustery day, and hers a more delicate splashy band to accompany her engagement solitaire.
As usual, many many more photos after the click:
I had in my mind the Hokusai woodblock of the giant wave when I was carving those little splashy bits.
I really enjoyed carving the ocean scene around this band. I spent a lot of time on a boat (more than a year and a half travelling) and looked at a LOT of water along the way. The way the water ripples and changes depending upon the wind and wave conditions is endlessly fascinating and beautiful. With the gross exception of when it is being blasted by 65-knot winds or messed up by 18-foot seas. Then it is obnoxious and angering.
This is my favorite spot on the band—and I managed to get a great photo of it. The dark shadow right in the front (that’s me behind by camera, by the way) reflects really nicely upon the texture of the wave. A happy accident!
