HIS SPECIAL NAME FOR HER

5.7.2018

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.
