I had the amazing opportunity to make 18ct white gold wedding rings for a lovely couple last month.
Gold is such a wonderful metal to work with.
It has a rich, earthy presence,
a beautiful weight in the hand,
and strength beyond measure.
I enjoyed every moment of crafting with this noble metal.
I was driven by the knowledge that it would represent the love and life journey of two people as they become husband and wife.
Here's how they were made:
18ct White Gold
Straight edges for a perfect solder join
Bending into a ring
Ends touching, ready for soldering
Smoothing the edges
Polishing inside the ring band
Satin finish outer
Polished finish inner
His and Hers wedding rings,
ready for life's journey.
I am so grateful for the people I meet
through doing what I love.
from the bottom of my heart.
