Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Colourful, Alternative, Wearable, Cute, Eye-catching.
What about your business are you most proud of?
I didn't set out to provide wedding jewellery, but realised as more orders came in that my work fills a niche others doesn't! I love that my work usually speaks to couples on it's own merits, not because it is aimed at the wedding market.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Honestly, do what you want to do, and trust your gut. You'll get advice from all over the place, friends, family, websites... If you want something that may seem cliche, or trendy, well, it's what you want. If you want to personalise the heck out of your wedding, and there isn't really a theme, or there are three themes crossing over and it's a bit of a mess, well, who cares, it matters to you.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
Often couples like my style, and can simply pick from already available designs, or only want a small detail altering. For more specific commissions I provide photos and sketches of options, try and source specific materials or colours, and keep the couple informed on the estimated costs along the way, so there are no nasty surprises at the end of the process.
What are your favourite wedding traditions for rings?
I love that some traditions are being bucked or adapted as weddings change, as once upon a time it wasn't necessarily rings you exchanged, just identifiable tokens. Now we're seeing men giving matching engagement watches, people getting tattoos on their ring finger, none-ring wearers transforming heirloom rings into wedding necklaces. It's all about exchanging tokens!
