All that glitters is gold

Well last week was a very big week for me! It was my first time working in Gold and oh it was fun! Even better it was a commission to make a pair of wedding rings for some good friends of mine. And I have to say it feels pretty fantastic that I made the rings that they’ll exchange. 

So here are some pictures of the process and the finished rings. They were made out of 14k yellow gold and if you’re after one or a pair they’re up and available on my etsy page 

This is what I started with, a strip of 14k gold 
It was then bent into a roughly ring shape and the piece sawed off

Small pieces of solder were placed along the joint and fire time!
Afterwards it doesn't look quite so pretty. 

Several hours later it's cleaned up, and the texture applied so it's shiny shiny gold :) 

And here's the matching his and her's set.
Of course they're bunny approved!

Love love love these earrings!

I’m sooo sooooo proud of theses earrings! You have no idea! I loooove them! These are hallmarked and ready to go. So tomorrow I have to make up another pair just for me to wear!

Also got my glass cutter out recently, it's been far too long! And more glass items shall be unveiled soon, here’s a few to whet your appetite.

And I have my howling wolf one of my favourite designs back in stock and hallmarked! Sending off more hallmarking Tuesday next week so if you want anything done and hallmarked just let me know!
Hope you’re all well
Sarah and the bunnies

PS: Here’s some pics from the photo shoot yesterday and my nosey models. Apparently sticking your nose in my camera lens is the new best game ever! They had me rolling around laughing at them :)
