Panning for gold is one of those things that has interested me for years. I finally got to check it off the bucket list by heading out to Jamestown, California where we set up shop along a small creek.
It is said that ideas will come to you when you are not really looking for them and that has never been more true for this ring.
I'm so excited to finally have the opportunity to share the custom wedding designs for Chris and Becca. It's been tough keeping it under wraps until the big proposal day but now that the cat is out of the bag we are free to reveal the set of wedding bands and an engagement ring we worked up together.
There was an amazing response from the release of the Sundial Designs inspired by the S-town Podcast! It's been awesome connecting with so many people who were also touched by it.
Carol came to me in search of a wedding band to go along with her vintage engagement ring. Her ring was uniquely shaped and a traditional band would not lay comfortably against it.
Thank you Elle Studios for this opportunity! Totally blown away by the amazing moments that Emily captured 😍 .
How cool is this place? Yes that is sand on the floor and again, yes you can dine INSIDE the nursery. Such a simple concept that makes for a calming and unique experience. Not a bad place to spend your time if you find yourself between London and the Heathrow airport.
I always find myself working on multiple new designs at once. Having several ideas going at once helps me keep things fresh but I find it can really drag out the gratification of completing something. Lately I find myself doing quite a bit of wax carving and wanted to share the process with you.
I was approached about making a matching lily of the valley pendant for a mother and her daughter, Lily. What started as a pair became three as we ended up adding a third pendant to the mix for Lily's grandmother and now they all have a tiny wearable treasure that ties them together.
I was fortunate enough to be a part of this lovely photoshoot at Passenger Coffee that was featured by the fine folks over at Borrowed & Blue.
The length of a necklace affects how it looks when you wear it. Always pay attention to necklace length when you’re purchasing jewelry, and be aware of how different necklace lengths look on you.
Most pendants can not be switched to longer or shorter chains on your own and they would need to be sent in to us for the alteration. They are designed so that the pendant does not fall off of the chain and the bail (part that connects the pendant to the chain) is too small to fit over the clasp and end ring.
We suggest that you measure a necklace that you already have and that is the length that you are looking for. Measurements should be taken from end to end including the clasp.
To get the most accurate measurement possible we urge you to get professionally sized at a local jewelry store and it that is not possible, pick up one of our Plastic Ring Sizers available in the shop. This sizer gives a pretty accurate measurement and is essentially free since it comes with a 4$ coupon code for a future ring purchase with us.
We also realize that time is of the essence sometimes and/or maybe you have plenty of rings lying around that fit perfect but just can't remember the size. Therefore we have outlined two possible ways for you to measure your ring size using this handy dandy printable PDF.
Please be sure to follow the instructions and double check measurements with a ruler. Printers can be tricky with sizing.
Place your ring over the closest matching sized circle, make sure the inside of the ring fits around the outside of the circle. If you are between sizes, order up.
1 - Get a non-stretchy string or paper about 6" long and 1/4" wide.
2 - Wrap around the base of your finger. It has to fit snug, but not too tight.
3 - Mark the point on the string/paper where it overlaps forming a circle.
4 - Compare the length of the string/paper to the chart. That is your ring size.
*If you are between sizes, order a larger size.
Make sure your finger is at a normal body temperature -- fingers can shrink or expand when cold or hot. If your knuckle is much larger than your finger’s base, take two separate measurements and choose a size in between. You want a ring to fit over your knuckle, but not be too loose or it will shift around.
