About

Name: Lorraine and Steve

Brief: The Couple had a 22ct wedding ring that they wanted to incorporate into their new wedding rings.  I melted down the ring and made an ingot which was then rolled in a mill and drawn though a draw plate to make it into 2mm wire.  The wire was then made into 4 rings which were soldered onto either side of 18ct white bands.

We were looking for someone that we felt we could trust to take the ring and transform it.

Before

We had an old 22ct wedding ring that was made up of 3 wedding rings, Mum, Dad and Grandma. This was obviously of great sentimental value but very old fashioned. We were looking for someone that we felt we could trust to take the ring and make us both more modern wedding rings.

During

We met with Loree who listened to what we wanted, gave us some initial ideas and then came back with a design. Apart from checking again for size we then left Loree to make the rings. When we went to collect them we were really excited and nervous about whether she had captured what we had envisaged.

We couldn’t have been happier.

After

The rings were beautiful and seeing them was very emotional. Loree had managed to transform our family ring in to 2 modern rings that will carry on to be handed down through the family.

We have since used Loree for other work where we have wanted old jewellery transforming into something new.
