Family Crest Garnet and Sterling Silver Ring

Sterling Silver and Garnet Family Crest RingI created this ring for Scott to give to his wife for their wedding anniversary. He wanted to show her how much a part of his family she was by sharing his family crest with her in some way.

He provided me with some great information and some pictures of his traditional family crest. After quite a bit of design discussion, as this ring was to be feminine, we settled on using a portion of the drawing to create the feeling of the crest – I really loved this swirly winglike piece!

Using a garnet to symbolise the red that appeared throughout the family crest (and which, of course, also symbolises love), I was very very happy with the end result. Thanks so much, Scott, it was a pleasure to work with you!

My lovely friend and supportive customer Elizabeth had a surprise recently, when she received this ring as an anniversary present!

Her husband, knowing Elizabeth likes my work, secretly commissioned me to make it for her.

I didn’t realise who it was for until I had nearly finished making it – then I finally put two and two together. I was so pleased! Happy anniversary, guys. May you have many, many more!

Sterling Silver, Garnet and Cairngorm Tree of Life Pendant

Sterling Silver, Garnet and Cairngorm Tree of Life Pendant  My best friend asked me to create a tree of life pendant for her lovely sister for her birthday.

To me, the brown of the smoky quartz (also known as cairngorm) represents the earth, and the red of the almandine garnet represents the fruit of the tree.

I wanted this tree to have a different, softer feel that the tree of life ring I made. So glad to hear the lovely El likes it!

Sterling Silver and Garnet Crown Set Ring

The very last piece that I made in my training course last year was this sterling silver and garnet crown set ring.

It’s a bit of a departure from my normal style, but I like it!

I specifically chose a garnet because my lovely sister who lives on the other side of the world has just turned 50, and she likes garnets.

Happiest of birthdays, dearest! xxx

Renee, a lovely customer for whom I previously had made a seaglass pendant, commissioned a custom made drusy agate ring.

Renee chose her gemstone from the collection available on from the Silver Forge gemstone collection. I love this red piece, it looks almost edible!

Carmen commissioned me to make this ring for her daughter for Christmas.

Funnily, I sourced this piece of drusy with Kish in mind, and out of all the stones there were to choose from in my collection, she chose it! 🙂

I just love this stone, and how at the right angle it looks like a kiss.

Spiral and Ball Garnet Set Statement Pendant Necklace

Nemo’s Nautilus

In keeping with the nautical theme I seem to have going, a diving bell a la Jules Verne is another piece that I made. Ok, so it’s not really a diving bell. But close one eye and it could be!!

Garnet Ball Pendant

I created this pendant for the goldsmithing training course that I am presently undertaking. The brief was fairly simple – make something incorporating a hollow ball! Great fun.

Garnet and Sterling Silver Art Deco Pendant

The first time I ever set a teardrop shaped stone was when I made this garnet and silver pendant for my oldest dearest friend.

My teacher helped with the design, and although one of the stones is not very well set, after four years I’m still pleased with the art deco look of this piece!
