Snuggle me Forever
Mark and Joanne are some of my oldest friends. The two met many, many moons ago through some mutual friends, and to say it has been true love ever since would be the only way to describe it. They understand each other, they are romantic, affectionate and patient with one another – they are the reason we all search for love. So, when they asked me to make their wedding rings I felt completely humbled and determined to make a set of rings as romantic as these two were. But how?
Joanne wanted diamonds and classic 18 karat gold as a material, however but Mark preferred a simple band and the understated colour of platinum. How could I make a set of wedding rings with a shared connection that are made from totally different materials, in different styles, sizes and thicknesses? Then, it occurred to me – What if Joanne’s ring could sit inside Mark’s ring. I carved out Mark’s ring to hold Joanne’s. The ultimate snuggle ring.
I carved both rings by hand from wax with a file, then a process called Lost Wax Casting was used to create a solid metal ring (Mark’s Ring is platinum 950 and Joanne’s is 18 karat gold). I set five diamonds into Joanne’s ring with a star setting. Both rings have a brushed matt finish.
Congratulations you guys! May you have a lifetime of snuggles ahead.
