These earrings are a follow up from a previous commission to re-purpose some old gold rings into a new wedding band. The gold was melted down and formed into 2mm square wire with plenty to make a wedding ring and have some leftover for a future project.

Really pleased with the final piece and it’s now got a new lease of life being worn again! Continue reading Commission: Silver & Gold Diamond Ring
