poppy motif wedding bands

Hand-carved Poppy wedding band + Classic band with nuthatch/bird carved intaglio inside, 18K yellow gold

I love this poppy ring: three sets of poppy blooms + feathery leaves around the band, just a little bit of openwork, a ~6mm width. This one has been paired with a classic polished band, but with a little something-something carved on the inside..

We Portlandians are famous for putting birds on all our handmade crafts, and I do my best to uphold this mighty tradition: a teensy intaglio nuthatch on the inside of this wedding band.

The poppy band is one I do make custom to order/fit. Please send me an email if interested: cheyenneweil@gmail.com.

Both bands hand carved, and cast into 18K yellow gold. More photos below!

tourmaline zodiac ring

Custom-designed & hand-carved Zodiac ring, tourmaline, 19K rose gold

Check out this awesome tourmaline! My client sent it to me to build an epic and very personal solitaire carved with the zodiac signs of her loved ones: Chinese Year of the Earth Pig & Year of the Rat, as well as Taurus the bull. The ring is 19K rose gold and has a 2.5mm old rose-cut diamond set in the base on the side of the bezel.

As usual, I took about 50 million photos of this ring; it can be incredibly hard to capture in 2D a 3D scene around a bezel and band and these photos really do it only partial justice. I’m really happy with how it turned out, and pleased at how nice her stone looks in the setting.

indian cows ring

Custom hand-carved Indian Cows Ring with Australian Boulder Opal, 18K

This idea had been kicking around for a while. I had made a sketch in my notebook, and happily, it caught the eye of one of my long-time clients. I am SO glad I got a chance to make this ring at long last. I love how unusual it is, the way the stone floats off the top of the ring, the sweet faces of the cows with their cool droopy ears, and of course, the amazing Australian boulder opal (actually opalized fossilized wood) cherry on top. 18K.

Please excuse this weird pic of my red fingers; it’s the most accurate photo I felt like I could get of the opal that really showed how the colors looked in true life. It had these bright shocks of hot pink, purple, and chartreuse amongst the oranges and blues-turquoises-greens. Just awesome.

So many more pics of this after the click:
