All our customers this week have brought ideas, sketches and inherited jewellery to me to turn into one-off spectacular Honeybourne designs. Each customer brought their own unique character to these pieces with symbols of love and family or just plain desire for that something pretty!
Our first commission was ordered by a customer who wanted a stylised, delicate design on a pendant, the final creation was made up in 9ct solid yellow gold with deconstructed flowers claiming centre place.
This ring was ordered by the customer for his girlfriend. Taken from his Granddad's flattened one shilling coin (chosen by the customer), I turned it into a ring in solid silver, which was both wearable and personal.
In this next piece the customer provided me with a sketch of his wife's favourite team, Crystal Palace's, emblem. From the drawing I made up the pendant in oxidised solid silver.
The next customer was a lady who brought in her Grandma's old ring and stones, which had a heart in the centre surrounded by two more square stones.
I turned the inherited jewellery into a beautiful keepsake using solid 9ct white gold to create the band along with two diamonds to set off the customer's inherited stones- the beautiful heart shape in the centre also remained!
His 'n' Hers wedding bands in solid silver with 9ct hammered gold beads adding a delicate, opulent touch to the two rings.
Here is another old ring of which I removed the peridot stones from re-setting them in a new solid silver ring design.
If you have any sentimental pieces of jewellery, stones or gold that could be salvaged and revived to reveal a new piece of jewellery which will give your memories a longer (and beautiful) life span, you can come and talk to us in the boutique or email us and we can talk about the possibilites.
