On Wednesday 14th March Gemma and Rich spent the day in the studio making their wedding rings. Working in palladium, they made fantastic rings for each other. Palladium requires a little more hard work at the buffing and polishing stages than gold or silver to gain the high polish, but they persevered, enjoying getting through each grade of sanding paper! This is where spending time and good old-fashioned hard graft pays off, turning a grey piece of metal into a shiny wedding ring that has a very special feel.
