Achievement and success, to me on a personal level, is being able to make someone happy. To have a client that is so thrilled with the piece that has been created for them is what my job is all about and is a very worthwhile and fulfilling achievement.
From a maker’s point of view, achievement and success is to being able to practice my craft and express thoughts and ideas through jewellery. I like to think of it as an ever-moving target, which I am happy to keep chasing.
Fingerprint Wedding Band Collection
The original fingerprint wedding bands were designed in 2004 when I was approached by a young couple wanting, as so many do, something different. The design brief focused on the ‘personal’, without using features as traditional as the date or name engraved onto the band. Ideas of heraldry and storytelling formed the basis of initial discussions and led to the idea of engraving a pattern that reflected the tastes and personalities of the couple. When looking further at the question of what is most personal, the answer was clear; the fingerprint. As no two fingerprints are the same the concept of an intimate connection between the couple, through the wedding band was born and the collection grew from there.
The bespoke fingerprint wedding bands are handmade, hand-finished and delicately hand-engraved with the fingerprint of your partner, on either the in or outside of the band, and therefore completely unique to each couple.
