"Sometimes my job involves patience. And boy was I patient with this one! Seán loved our Campbell engagement ring, but wanted to add rubies somewhere. We came up with this set which slot together. Wear the wedding ring either way, so the rubies all nestle together on one side, or so the rubies and tiny diamond hug each other."
"Beautifully dainty 1mm round gauge ring, with 3.5mm round brilliant cut diamond. Understated, yet exquisite piece is perfect for that very special loved one. This handcrafted ring is lightly planished to give a glistening effect to the ring shank subtle yet eye catching, with a solid gold setting to hold that beautiful sparkly diamond with a unique milled edge inspired by a sunbeam.
"Commission for a really large statement engagement ring, pink sea glass with sterling and fine silver."
"Finding the way took on many forms. Just like water does, on its way to becoming one. One river, one ocean, one teardrop. She changed her shape to fit your path, the path that leads you home. Custom rose cut pear diamond ring and curved salt and pepper diamond nesting band, both in gold."
"This was a rough natural diamond with 9ct yellow gold bezel setting and band."
"Hammered and oxidised men’s ring with a rustic black channel running all the way around the band! This was possibly the hardest ring I’ve ever made as it was just so hard to form! Working with thick metal really has its challenges but I’ll always be pleased with how this creation turned out. I’m so pleased I still have it as it was one of the first things I ever made!"
"I have a feeling quite a few beautiful dreams and wishes will be coming true this Christmas. I adore the pale olive sea glass paired in this three stone ring with 18ct yellow heirloom gold and white diamonds. A sweet 9ct recycled gold pear solitaire, with subtle hammer-textured band."
"2 carat antique cushion cut lab diamond set in 9ct white gold💎😍This has been the hardest ring I’ve made so far, claw settings are something of a work in progress / trial (multiple times) and error process with me still, but I’m really pleased with how this has turned out."
"First (and possibly last) ever go at a claw setting! It is uneven and perfectly imperfect! I made it for myself... (fiance bought the moonstone!) variety is the spice of life and all!"

"Making an engagement ring for someone can seem incredibly daunting at first. You want it to be perfect as much as your client does, but if you take the time to plan it out, make test pieces if required and give yourself enough time to make it, you’ll be fine!"
