Ocean wave/sailboat wedding bands

Uncle Bill got married! And I got to make the wedding bands!! Bill has spent a large portion of his life in and around water and on sailboats, trimarans mostly. Nimble little trimarans. So we of course went with a watery theme for both bands, ocean swells around two palladium bands. On Bill’s band I added a tiny trimaran. For Francine’s ring, we added a second contrasting 18K yellow band with delicate hammering.

My rings in Weddings Unveiled Magazine

Ooh la la! I really need to shake my photography paradigm up a bit; I love the way the photographer staged the photo with the heart-shaped leaf.

So yeah! I got an email from a couple I made some rings for and their friend put together a wedding spread for the magazine Weddings Unveiled and she put my rings in it! I’m in the current (Winter 2013) issue, pages 90-93. I’m a little disappointed that they didn’t bother to credit the brilliant genius who made the rings (cough cough) but I suppose it’s made up for by the fact that that the rings are at least in a tasteful, nay, downright awesome spread.

You can see the full set of photos from the shoot here. Pretty gorgeous; I rather love the raw edges of the wedding dress.
