2014 off to a flying start

January 29, 2014

I can't believe it's February in just a few days. January has flown by. My first show of the year is next week, Desire in London. Replenishing stock and making new pieces has taken up the majority of my time, and I've really enjoyed it. The new year can be a tricky time, post Christmas madness and planning for the coming year. This year, I haven't had chance to ponder the "what if's" or "let's try", it's been head down and get on with it!

I have numerous commissions that came in before Christmas, but weren't needed for the big day, so those are on the bench at the same time. In fact tomorrow I am melting and casting two sets of rings for clients.

I have had the pleasure of welcoming several couples to the studio already this year, who have travelled to make their wedding rings with me. All stayed locally for several days to soak up the delights of the Herefordshire countryside.

As I'm sure we are all aware Valentine's Day is just around the corner, and it seems the ideal time to 'pop the question'. In the first week of January I had two emails arrive in my inbox about making the rings. It's always a privilege to be a small part of a very important moment, and help to make it special. For me, Valentine's Day is not about jewellery. It is a day Adie and I spend together, so no gifts or jewellery, just time together and a picnic with the dog.

So with Christmas and New Year seemingly a distant memory, the new year rolls into February. I am looking forward to a busy and exciting few weeks, and then I will once again be saying 'how on earth did we get to Easter! "


A few pics I took over New Year in Dartmouth, Devon, where we relaxed and recharged!

Ring sizing

Sue makes rings to the size your select when ordering. If the ring does not fit, then she will re-size the ring free of charge (once only) providing:

  1. You (the customer) pay £9 to cover Royal Mail Special Delivery costs for returning the ring to you (can be paid by cheque or back transfer).
  2. You (the customer) ensure it's returned within 14 days of delivery.

Please contact Sue before returning a ring for a re-size; it is so useful to have a discussion to help gauge how much adjustment is needed.

Please note: rings must be returned via Royal Mail Special Delivery and opting for the appropriate insurance option to cover the cost of the item. Sue Lane is not responsible for the delivery costs of returning a ring for re-sizing or for lost or damaged rings whilst in transit. For more details, please read our Returns Policy.

Sue will happily resize, refinish or repolish the ring at any time after the 14 days have expired, but at a cost based on the time needed to fulfil the work which Sue can quote before you return the ring.

Not sure of your ring size?

If you are not sure of your ring size, please contact Sue. She can arrange your order and then post out a free ring sizer to you. You then simply call or email with the measurement.
