A ring for Tess

Sketches for a ring design.

18ct yellow gold ring set with an oval parti sapphire.

This ring was a commission for a friend who was after a ring to honour the birth of her baby boy.
I also have the privilege of also making this client's wedding and engagement rings. So it was a special commission for me.
Each of the rings that Tess wears are different to each other.
An eclectic personal collection of rings.
To start off, I presented a page of possible designs, and the bottom two were preferences.
Tess has a family ring with leaf motifs on it, which is how this ring evolved.
Thank you to Tess for asking me to make this special ring for her, it was a real joy to make.

  Art has to reveal to us ideas, formless spiritual essences. The supreme question about a work of art is out of how deep a life does it spring… All the rest is the speculation of schoolboys for schoolboys.
