I recently worked on a commission for a wedding ring. My client wanted something special and individual that described his family and their relationship to the land.
We worked together to design this ring using his hand drawn map of campsite locations that have significance to his family. The hand drawn design was then rendered using CAD to ensure the fine detail of campsites and symbols were correct to his liking.
An interesting project as we never met - he was in country NSW - this often proved challenging however it was the most satisfying commission piece to date.

I made this ring using a harlequin married metal pattern in brass and copper. The harlequin pattern forms very attractive horizontally positioned diamond shapes across the surface of the ring. I also have a version of this ring in a satin finish which makes the pattern more "readable".
Want something that no one else has? Don't we all, this ring is one of a kind and is looking for an owner. Like the marquise ring I made for commission it has the chequerboard married metal pattern in silver and copper with a satin finish.

This image is of a recent commission I made using one of my favorite designs. Being this very lovely silver marquese shaped ring with copper chequer board top.
Most people who try on this ring love the combination of high polish on the sides with the satin finsh - for added visibility of the pattern.
The pattern is developed using what is called married metal technique where I solder the chequer board pattern squares of copper and silver together to make a sheet of metal. Labour intensive yes but the results are unique and I simply love knowing what I have designed and made is completely original.
