Friday at the bench...Engagement Ring!

This week I finished up an exciting project: a commissioned engagement ring with nesting wedding band. My customer saw my Gold Vine Ring w/ diamond online and asked me if I could make a similar ring in a white metal. After much discussion, he decided on 950 Palladium, a naturally strong and durable noble metal that offers a more radiant white than white gold, and has many of the desired characteristics of platinum without platinum’s price. I think the rings turned out beautifully! Congrats to Rob & Traci!
These vine rings are proving to be popular...I have two more commissions in the works!
Aside from this vine ring and a few other orders, this week I started making some stacking rings from the wire Ben & I drew down 2 weeks ago. They are a combination of 14k white, yellow and pink golds...still incomplete...but will be finished and listed on Etsy soon!
