It's hard to believe summer is almost over! I haven't had a chance to write about this incredible custom mens ring I had the honor to make! This was a special project for someone who reached out to me from Australia. Tys had recently had a job promotion and had promised himself this ring once he achieved it. It was so much fun to work with someone who had such a clear vision for what they wanted. He had very specific ideas of each aspect of the ring.
After he sent me some photo references i was able to put together a photoshop mock up of the ring that looked like this:
Once i found the perfect ruby I got to work on the wax! To accommodate the stone we made the band a little taller then the photoshop rendering. Also, we decided to make the ridges more uneven and organic feeling as opposed to straight across as the photoshop file had been.
