Andi and I met up for coffee at Gayle's Bakery (!) to discuss a present for his wife's 50th birthday. We talked through my 'style' and his ideas, came up with an initial design which was then created in wax and then cast. Once cast, the ring was set with 6 Emeralds in the hollows of the design and the bangle with 20 moss and bright emeralds, 2 pink sapphires (representing their daughters) and a single bright diamond.
I sent photo's throughout the process so that he could feel involved and know that things were progressing on time.
And she loved them!
Lesson learnt: make sure when you are using one of your wives rings for sizing that it is still one that fits.
