Full Description
  • I love celebrating those special moments in life; creating memories and making people feel amazing. My biggest passion is to create jewellery that is personal to you, designed with your love, personality and style. My flexibility to design and make to a couple’s request makes this a really personal experience to be involved in for the bride and groom-to-be. Having a wedding ring that suits the most unusual engagement rings can be a difficult task which I love to create and knowing my jewellery completes such a special time of 2 peoples’ lives is a real privilege. I am an award-winning jewellery designer and maker based in Bristol creating unique one-of-a-kind pieces of jewellery for your wedding. I have over 15 years experience of making engagement and wedding rings, pendants or earrings as wedding gifts or a treat for yourself in silver, gold, platinum & palladium. All clients living in the Bristol or surrounding areas will have the option of a home visit for all consultations, discussing all of your ideas in a relaxed conversation in your own home.

FAQ
(10)
What is your most memorable wedding?
I often get some unusual requests; one being to design a wedding ring for someone who loves tractors. I designed a ring inspired by a tractor tyre. It was very sculptural with a polished and matt texture and made a great man's wedding ring.
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Timeless, organic, unique, personal and meaningful
What about your business are you most proud of?
I am most proud of the personal service I've managed to establish. My biggest passion is creating jewellery that is meaningful and loved by each client and that is only achieved by building a relationship, finding out what your likes and dislike are, is there a wedding theme to work towards or perhaps your occupation requires a certain type of wedding ring. Speaking to clients, putting them at ease, is genuinely a large part of what I love about my job.
What is your #1 wedding planning tip for couples?
My top tip would probably be not to overwhelm yourself with too many options to prevent going over budget. For example, look for 3 florists, 3 cake makers, 3 makeup artists etc and decide from those 3 options who you would like to work with. It's too easy to add lots of "those little extras".
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
The guests brought their own carved pumpkins to a Halloween wedding, these pumpkins made the decorations for the service meaning all the guests got to contribute to the day.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
Initially, I discuss what if any ideas you have, what choice of metals you would prefer your jewellery to be made of and what budgets you have. I can then go away to design several ideas for you. If I am designing a wedding ring to fit perfectly around an engagement ring I'll take lots of information of the engagement ring and present you with realistic lifelike images; giving you the reassurance of what the rings will look like before you commit to buying. During the making process I provide photographs of your piece at various stages, keeping you upto date throughout.
What are your favourite wedding traditions for rings?
Many of my clients prefer to create jewellery designs that represent their personality and individuality, often going against any wedding traditions.
What is the most romantic engraving you have seen on a wedding ring?
I'll often laser engrave clients handwriting into rings, you can't get much more personal.
Which ring do you think holds most significance for a bride?
If the engagement ring was a surprise, the bride-to-be often knows just how much effort their fiance has made. Lots of research into jewellery which is often quite alien to men can be a nerve-wracking experience. The bride-to-be can then get excited about continuing the experience with the design process of the wedding rings.
What is your favourite proposal story?
One of my clients learnt polish in order to ask the Father for his Daughters hand in marriage, he then organised a light show during the proposal. He went to so much effort.
