surprise me!

She said “yes!” It’s such a joy and a privilege to be asked to make that special ring—and this was an intriguing project right from the start: our bride-to-be had chosen her diamonds, was totally ready to have her custom betrothal band commissioned, and wanted to have no part in the design process. Just wow! The whole idea of that made me smile so much - how exciting would that be? Just waiting for that shiny surprise…

Kudos to Alex, the groom-to-be, for leading this wonderful task, and giving me some really good ideas about what Ali didn’t like—that was such a strong way to start a design process for you both. And cheers for the family brainstorm where I got to know Ali more as a person through all of you: we imagined what sort of ring we might create—something that could fit her personal style, plus we figured it might end up going horse-riding ;) Thank you all for collaborating, getting ring sizes, and sharing your inspiration.

Congratulations to Alex and Ali - wishing you both love, long life, and happiness. Thank you so much for inviting me to create your ring.
