These wedding photographs from Nan & John are taken in Wyoming. They made an appointment to come from Richmond for Nan's commission wedding bands and a matching pendant made in gold with sapphires and diamonds. We created two matching bands to go around Nan's unique engagement ring.
Here is a photo of the happy couples hands! Congratulations to Nan and John from Richmond!
Pictured here is a commission earring made in white gold, using Sumiko's triangular diamond to create the point for a completely unique arrow earring.
Molly & John were passing through Old Town Alexandria traveling on their way back to Washington state when they stopped by our studio in the Torpedo Factory. They decided to commission rings to wear with their wedding bands for their 25th wedding anniversary.

Here are a few images of a happy bride wearing a 14K rose gold commission wedding band I made, along with the commission process, A Ring in Three Steps:
The first step is the client's sketch for an engagement ring, with the vision of combining three rings into one; the second is my drawing as approved by the client; and the third is the finished ring in red, gold, and different gem stones, as the client requested. The idea of combining three rings into one was complex and challenging.
I did it, the client is very happy, and the good news is that his fiancée said yes! Congratulations to the happy couple!
This Commission Mokume Gane (mixed metals) ring with diamonds made it safely to my client Machteld's hand in the Netherlands.
The image in the middle above shows Branka from California wearing her beautiful new blackened sterling silver bracelet from the Genius of Nature Collection. I used diamonds from a pair of her earrings to create this look.
Pictured on the right is a sterling silver bracelet with diamonds from the Spanish Steps collection, which also looks great with the blackener option!
