New Work

This next one is very exciting (to me at least!) - I've been wanting to attempt a hand-fabricated three-stone ring for ages but I kept thinking it would be too hard. Well, I finally got over it and tried, and it wasn't nearly as bad as I feared... it did present some new technical challenges, but overall I'm really pleased with how it turned out, and I can't wait to try another (next up is three moissanites set in white gold).
