On Saturday 10th March Ilse and Jan joined me to make their wedding rings. They really enjoyed the experience and where delighted with the two beautifully finished 18k white gold wedding rings that they made. Here are some images from their day with me in the studio.
Both Jan and Ilse made their rings from the same shape metal
so we began with one strip of 18k white gold.
