Carrie + Rick

So honoured to have had the opportunity to make Carrie + Rick's wedding bands. A thoughtful couple full of wit, I can only imagine how much fun the wedding will be! A pleasant switch from the the conventional to have both rings the same narrow width. Hand fabricated in yellow gold with a soft matte finish and high polish combo.

Stephanie + Ken

Finely handcrafted custom wedding bands with a delightful matte satin finish, inside and out. My heart sings seeing the simplicity and subtlety speak on the hands of the happy couple. www.designbyrefine.com www.refineandcompanion.blogspot.com

Laura + Bryan

Simplicity at it's best. Sometimes a classic understated style is all you need...for a lifetime. I loved when Laura surprised me with her request for an ultra wide band - understated yet very bold! Lovely rings for a lovely couple. www.designbyrefine.com www.refineandcompanion.blogspot.com

New Beginnings

While working on my reclaimed collection this Easter weekend, I stumbled upon this sterling silver rabbit from my old baby charm bracelet. Now a sentimental pendant for easy wear. Rabbit can symbolize rebirth and growth in artistic areas. Perfect timing as I embrace many changes for Refine this year. Customers (old and new) will have much to look forward to...Happy Spring and Happy New Beginnings! www.designbyrefine.com www.refineandcompanion@blogspot.com

Workshop of an Artist - My Atelier Part 2

More workshop delights. Some of my machines seem as old as dinosaurs, but they were built to last and have so much character. A sunny south exposure is the icing on the cake. www.designbyrefine.com www.refineandcompanion.blogspot.com
