Just to give a little preview of a wedding ring I'm sculpting for a new bride. It will be cast in Rose Gold with a 1 carat diamond. The bands will have leaves on them and possibly small scattered diamonds on the petals to represent tiny rain drops.One thing I have learned about sculpting roses is that when you take away the very top of the rose and replace it with a diamond, you have too work super hard on the lower petals to capture that iconic rose look...that's not easy to do but I know my OCD will kick in and it won't leave my bench until I'm happy with it. More photos later...

I was asked by Lori to create an adorable tree frog ring based on the story below:
|Tree Frog Ring|
I call my 2.5 yr old daughter my little tree frog - and I would love something to remind of how she would cling to me when she was little when she is out too late when she is 17 - (planning early here!)
Thanks so much
This just tugged at my heart but at the same time I was so jealous I hadn't thought of this design myself. It's so adorable...only the fingers of the tree frog could pull off this cool idea. New pictures soon once cast in Sterling Silver.

I have never thought about sculpting people until this job came across my desk. I saw the sketch my customer gave me and it just spoke to me. I knew if I was going to get the opportunity to sculpt people...this was it.
I went back in fourth with the detail issue, how much was needed? Should there be eyes, ears and fingers? So I decided to just start building the wax model and hopefully, it would hit me at some point how much detail was needed.
Well this is what I have learned...No, you don't need eyes to show feeling. A simple turn of the head, their arms embarrassing each other, her leg lifting up can all say "I love you"
Their hands blend into each others body becoming one.
The finished piece will be cast in bronze, polished and possibly antiqued.

I have the privilege and the approval to post the Cattleya Hawaiian Wedding Song Necklace below being sculpted...
Once sculpted from wax, the necklace will be cast in solid Sterling Silver and 14k Yellow Gold. I have already decided that I have some tweaking to do on the bud placement, but that's the great thing about sketches...it's a place to start.
I will be posting my wax updates here, and I hope it's will be exciting to see the piece being made, I know I get excited seeing something going from a sketch to a three dimensional necklace.
