Working together with a client to create a custom design is so rewarding. The journey is one filled with excitement and anticipation.
This piece was inspired by a one-of-a-kind “Concave Cut” Amethyst by Michael Dyber, who is the only American to have won the prestigious German cutting award in Idar Oberstein, Germany. We re-cut cabochon Tsavorite Garnets and flush set them upside down to compliment the “Bubble cut” in the Amethyst. The rails of pave’ diamonds in platinum were to emphasize the dynamic lines of the Amethyst. I was fortunate to win my second International Spectrum Award with this piece while I was still in my Maui store.
I was deeply moved while repairing a well-loved and well-worn 1949 high school ring. The ring belongs to family friends, my parents have known since college. Now my father is in ill health and I can’t repair him but I could bring the class ring back to life again. Processing these many emotions was a great reminder of how short life is, and how honored I am to be able to be a part of people’s lives, helping in a small way to reinforce love and memories. Stories last generations.
I received a phone call from a couple looking to create a “driftwood” themed engagement ring. I knew right away of the challenge to come and was excited to be a part of this creative design. After several consults, the result was beyond expectations and reflected an organic softened but “weathered” driftwood. Check out some of our other wedding rings in our Gallery.
Opal piece created for clients from Oahu, whose family the movie “Descendants” was made about. The color of the Opal reminded me of the waters of Hawaii and my sixteen years on Maui. Truly a story that will last generations.
