Creating a raw diamond engagement ring

18 carat white gold and rough diamond engagement ring with design drawings

This is the story of a truly bespoke, one-of-a-kind engagement ring. Every bespoke piece has its own story, but this recent commission was particularly unique, and so I'd like to share some of the process from design to completion with you here. I hope you enjoy it! 

John came to me with a stone, a few ideas, an open mind and a full heart. He wanted an engagement ring for his beloved that was dramatic and impressive but not showy,...


Summer break

A new look for silver Flow rings

Organically shaped, handmade silver Flow rings in brushed silver

As I'm sure you know, the Flow pieces - rings first, then pendants and earrings - emerged during the past difficult winter. As a maker and designer, so much of what I create comes from how I'm feeling, and these pieces certainly mirrored what I felt during those long, dark winter days of 2020.
