Ruth Mary talks about the human stories behind sentimental jewellery and shares what to do with a loved ones wedding ring after they pass away. Keeping memories alive is part of giving her clients peace of mind. It's integral to her bespoke work, especially when repurposing a piece of heirloom jewellery.
Jean kept Stuart’s ring safely in a drawer for some time after he died, before she felt ready to build on the memories they shared. Stuart spent many years running the Weavers Guild. So I designed a necklace for Jean to wear, to remind her of these treasured memories. The woven detail was created using fine 9 carat gold wire to reflect his time at the guild.
This blog isn't about the #metoo movement, feminism or women's rights. When you meet a new client or colleague, they've made a judgement about you, faster than they know about it. So wear the right jewellery for the image you want to portray.
