MOUNTAIN SCAPE DIAMONDS
It was a great honour to make this wedding ring for a wonderful girl with three of her grandmother's old cut diamonds. Becca is an inspirational mountain adventurer and we worked together to come up with this design, an absolute triumph! Completely bespoke and contemporary while having style with longevity. Internally engraved with co-ordinates of their SUPER romantic engagement location.
Maggie came to me with a gorgeous black diamond and requested a twig engagement ring. It might surprise you how long it takes looking at trees to find the perfect twig! Delighted to say Maggie was very happy with her twiggy sparkler and asked me to make her husband-to-be's wedding band!

What a joy to work on these special commission earrings. Kev and Fee surf on the Isle of Lewis in the Scottish Outer Hebrides a lot. Kev got in touch to request a special design for their wedding anniversary and Fee's birthday. The 18ct white gold is mesmirising and looks so different depending on the angle of light. Happy celebrations soul surfers!

HIS SPECIAL NAME FOR HER
While I'm a strong believer in us all being children of the universe and ultimately bound to nature's cycles and endless beauty... there are two people I know who embody a spiritual kind of love and life so strongly that I can't help but think they are special. They got married last weekend and I was honoured to make their rings, the perfect circle symbol of everlasting love with no beginning and no end. His 22ct gold with his special name for her engraved inside the band, hers in 18ct gold, both custom fit for a perfect match.
THE MOST ROMANTIC PROPOSAL...
It doesn't get much better than one of your favourite pals asks you to make an engagement ring for one of your favourite gals. A view from a special place of the mountain upon which he proposed at sunrise. Here's to the most awesome adventure couple we know. If ever a pair were made for each other!
LORNA & JOHN - MARRIED IN THE MOUNTAINS
Lorna & John designed a very special symbol to represent their family mountain. This unique and precious design was translated into sterling silver necklaces and cufflinks to share with each of their closest friends and family during their magical mountain wedding in Chamonix, France. Organisation of which was helped along by international wedding planners Haute Wedding who specialize in luxury destination weddings throughout France, from the Alps to the Riviera. Oo la la!
ELEANOR & BRYCE - CREAR BEACH WEDDING
The sea of love ♡ MASSIVE thanks to the lovely ladies at Crear Weddings who collected shells from the west coast beach overlooking the isles of Islay, Jura and Gigha where Eleanor and Bryce get married today. A beautiful little shell was selected and cast in solid silver to create unique pendants for Els & Bryce's most loved ladies. A precious keepsake from a very special place.
INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S DAY: Shred!
So excited to be supporting International Women's Day Snowsports Touring on Cairngorm Mountain on the 9th March this year. Part of the AVIEMORE ADVENTURE FESTIVAL 2017, in Association with Scottish Backcountry and Front Point Adventure. After being part of last year's unofficial IWDST, it is my absolute pleasure to donate a mountain necklace to be won by one of a group of female backcountry skiers and snowboarders. The day is intended to encourage and support female participation in snowsports touring. What's not to love?
