You Make me Smile
When Danny and Maya came to the studio to I knew it was going to be fun to work with them on their wedding rings. They are an incredibly lovely couple who always make you feel so warm and fuzzy.
Danny works in design and Maike is one of those naturally stylish women who effortlessly looks fabulous all the time. I suggested the two of them visit a generic jeweller in town to try on rings. This ways they could see how which metal they preferred. After trying on several rose gold, yellow gold and platinum rings they both decided that platinum was the material for them. Maike, who is German, wanted precious stones set in her ring and was quick to decide that they should be green, as reminder of Danny’s Irish heritage – so emeralds were the clear choice.
They wanted two rings that shared a common link so I began working on some ideas. I wanted the two rings to be effortlessly stylish and decided that Danny’s ring should simply hold the impressions of Maya’s ring on the outside of his ring. I carved out five circular impressions on Danny’s ring – like a Morse Code with a secret message that sends love in both directions.
Congratulations you two lovely people!

“Laura was attentive and really listened to what I wanted. She is very friendly and easy to deal with, communicating through the process with sketches, test models and the finer details. I would highly recommend Laura for any jewellery with a personal touch. It makes it all the better knowing its made from reclaimed silver!”
