She said YES!!!
I recently saw some of your work at the Apple Festival up in North Carolina. I am interested in having an engagement ring custom created. I love your floral renderings and as such, the inspiration for my ring is the winter flower called the Snowdrop. I'm not exactly sure how I want this executed (not being artistic and such). Please let me know what I needs to happen for this to move forward, thanks so much for your time...
...well, first I needed to see what a Snowdrop Flower looked like and to my suprize...I loved this flower and immediately saw the flower draping over her finger. I pulled several pictures off the web and asked if these were what she had in mind and it was. Here are the inspirational pictures Katie & I agreed upon.
Once I started working on the ring I realized that either the ring was going to have to be shortened or she had to have long fingers, well Katie was blessed with very long fingers, so my Snowdrop Bouquet draping over her fingers could continue.
This is what I sculpted...
|My idea is for the open Snowdrop bud on top will hold |
a diamond in a 6 prong setting. I've added a blue wax ball
to visually show the placement of the setting.
|Not your typical band but once together it all works together.|
|I love the additional draped buds on each side. Each semi-open buds |
are three dimensional showing the detail inside the petals.
I have about one more day of fine tuning.
Next...Casting in White Gold plus adding the diamond!
