Which Way Are You Supposed to Wear a Ring?

Which way are you supposed to wear a ring? Which way does this ring go? I get asked these questions all the time, especially because so many of my ring designs are asymmetrical. The answer I always give is, “rings are for YOU! You should wear them however YOU want!”

I love that people interpret my designs in ways that are meaningful to them. Sort of like a musician who covers another artist’s song, but brings their own life and style to it, adding something of their own. It’s a beautiful thing to add your own meaning to a work of art, adding a piece of your story, and making it personal and special. I also think it is a beautiful gift to see things in a new way, a fresh perspective when we see things through someone else’s eyes.

Creating Love and Memories

September 16, 2019

I have been given the opportunity to create engagement and wedding rings for many people in my years as a jeweler. Some of the most memorable being when friends or friend’s partners ask me to design a ring or rings for their engagement and wedding. It’s not only about making a piece of jewelry that they will treasure for years to come, but also about being brought into the circle of trust, being one of few people to know about this exciting surprise that is right around the corner.

Yoga, mindfulness, and mediation are spoken of so much these days, and with the world, as it is today, I believe we absolutely need these reminders and posited vibes!!

Alternative Engagement Rings and Bridal Jewelry

Alternative Engagement Rings and Bridal Jewelry

April 24, 2019 1 Comment

Alternative engagement rings are all the rage these days. Maybe you have heard the term and not quite understood it. “Alternative” really is defined as “available as another possibility”. I love possibilities! When it comes to a uniquely designed engagement ring… “imagine the possibilities!”

I’ve been doing [custom jewelry design] for quite a long time now, and one of the things I always say to custom clients is, “the possibilities are endless!” And they truly are! It’s a really fun part of my job to ask questions during this process and to offer some suggestions on what a custom ring, designed with their specific story in mind, could look like.
