Margaret told me she had been waiting too long to make this ring, so I had better make it big and bold! She had a plastic bag full of scrap gold and three diamonds - one from her Mother, husband, and daughter. The diamonds looked very different from each other and I was please to find that once I got them out of the old jewelry, they were all the exact same size. I set them in a strip setting of white gold which gives them the illusion of being larger and just seemed to bump up the sparkle factor. She is pleased that this ring does not go unnoticed on her finger!
Wanda Lock is a painter that lives in the Okanagan Valley. I have been an admirer of her work for a while now and was pleased to find out that we are neighbors! I work and live around such creative people here in Kelowna. She just recently finished a series of work that used UFO's as subject matter so that was in the inspiration for her family ring. I can honestly say that no one else will have a ring like this one!
This has been a busy several weeks trying to get the website up and running, but it is done! I also have an official Facebook page, so I am trying to cover all the bases on line. I don't think you will catch me twittering though, but never say never... Please let me know here or on Facebook what you think of the new site. I'd love some feedback.
I have four custom projects on my bench as well as trying to get stock ready for the three spring shows coming up. I hope to have those projects done and new pictures up soon so check back.
