An elegant alternative to tradtional wedding bands, This pair of satin white gold rings were a pleasure to make for a lovely couple. These commitment rings have one plain and one mobius twist ring.
A couple of recent commissions which were special gifts. The man's chunky textured silver silver ring has a ruby set in 9ct gold. The 18ct gold forged earrings have a secret engraving on the back. It is always a pleasure to make these personal pieces of jewellery.
I have had my own maker's mark, with my initials, registered with the London Assay Office for 1O years. There is a miniumum weight over which precious metals should be hallmarked and I am happy to have my hallmarking done at the London Assay Office - the distinctive Leopard's head is their symbol. All my jewellery is hallmarked as required so do look out for my initials in the hallmark!
Started the year off making a ring for an 18th birthday with this lovely apple green chrysoprase gemstone. It's a vivid but calming colour and looked good with the hammered silver shank. The celtic twist silver ring was a 25th anniversary gift for a man; the wife and son already have matching rings so it's lovely to ahve made one for each of the family!
I like to post work in progress and finished work on instagram as well as on this blog - here is the 'best nine' from my instagram feed last year. You can follow me here www.instagram.com/birgittebruunjewellery/
Time to down tools for Christmas - looking forward to some festive downtime before starting some new projects in January. Wishing you all a wonderful Christmas.
The last couple of months have flown past and I've just been finishing off last commissions in time for Christmas. This ring is set with a lovely subtle turqouise, a textured silver and gold pendant and earring set and a sparkling hammered oval silver bangle.
You can see why opals are one of the birthstones for October - they really reflect the range of colours seen around us at the moment. These are some recent rings and a pendant I have made in silver and gold with opal gemstones., I love the range of colours from sublte milky white opal to fire opal.
Another special commission can now be revealed. This time it was a present for a bride-to-be and the brief was based on the olive branch as a symbol of peace. This was apt as the couple are Greek and an olive branch design is often traditionally worn. The pendant is silver and rose gold. I'm delighted to hear that it was well received and wish the couple a long and happy future ahead.
It was a real pleasure to make this very special and personalised birthday present for a very lucky man. An 18ct gold cuff bracelet with engraved message on the inside.
