Gold in its natural form
I’m currently in the process of making a ring for a client from a nugget of gold (discovered in her mother’s jewellery box!). It is so beautiful in its own natural form and I want to maintain the essence of that.
It will be encrusted with rubies and diamonds from a old fashioned brooch (also found in the jewellery box). I love the idea of the material keeping its sentimental attachment but creating something contemporary that can be enjoyed in the future.
Keep a look out for the final design, it will be posted in a few weeks.
Here are some more images of some amazing natural gold nuggets
This sort of size should make a few rings…..(!!)
