Well, it's been a truly busy past few months as the warm weather brought in a flurry of loved up folks looking for all manner of sparkle and sentiment to put on their fingers. Here are some recent wedding and engagement ring commissions i had the pleasure of taking on this summer.
I've just finished installing my latest collection of works at e.g.etal Gallery, titled Lucky Fool.
Based on an original charm my friend and i travelled with many years ago, these new charms serve the purpose as bearers of chance, luck, direction and hope. Made from a variety of materials, from carved bone, horn, amber, wood, jet, or cast in silver, gold; each charm is unique.
Though the pieces can be viewed from here on in, the official opening with drinks is this coming Thursday, 6-8pm. So swing by if you're around!
For more info, go to the e.g.etal website.
I'll be speaking at this awesome event next week! Get your tickets if you haven't already!!
