In the meantime…engaged!!

We are still catching up after a very busy engagement and wedding season. It’s been great. Here’s a ring I’ve recently finished after a young man approached me with the wish to have a ring made from local gold. I’ve even incorporated a little of his own alluvial gold that he found into the rosegold band. Congratulations to the now newly engaged couple!
