In life, we unfortunately sometimes loose the people we love. My client made a wax print of the fingerprints of her belated father and walked around with the idea of printing these on a piece of jewellery for quite some years. As a surprise, I finished this project with my client's husband and we printed the prints on the ‘Tit ring’, one of my designs that stand for nurturing, feminity and family. An amazing piece to cherish the memories of her father and have her family close to her every day.
Some of my clients inherence the most amazing jewellery, and when showing these pieces, my jewellery and antique loving heart sometimes skips a beat. The client of this Scarab opal ring had a very rare and unique opal which she allowed me to use in a scarab ring with open wings. The combination of the blue toned opal and the real scarab wings got me over the moon and we agreed to make this piece not only wearable as a ring, but also changeable into a necklace.
Mammoth Egg Necklace
This mother of three received this necklace from her husband. Every little egg stands for one of their children. On the back of the eggs the names of the children are engraved. The necklace is made of 18ct yellow gold and 40.000 fossilized mammoth. With this piece she always carries her family close.
Cloud Emerald Earrings
These amazing green emeralds had been lying in a jewellery box for years before my client came to me with the request to spice them up a bit. I decided to mix them with my fascination for clouds. I added some golden studs in the clouds and made some tassles with thunder and stars on the clouds. The earrings got a whole new look!
Story goes, that in the 16th century these rings where used for slipping poison in someone’s drink. A client who always has to carry her medicine with her asked me to make a ring with a hidden compartment. The ring are actually two snakes twirling around each other protecting the poison. The upper part of the ring can be open and there supposed to be a little poison in it. The ring is made of 18ct yellow gold.
