Celtic Knots Wedding Bands

CAD art works

lovely matching wedding bands

the rings even match the embroidery of her tops

the weaving knots

Material: Palladium Silver
My favorite Celtic wedding ring is the Celtic Knot. The rugged twists and turns of the Celtic knot symbolize the unending love that binds two people together in marriage, and are thought to symbolize the interconnectedness through life. 
In fact this is one of my favorite project. Ample of time to plan and execute, the rings were deliver half a year later. Thanks to this couple - both artists, have full trust in us. Never call until the last month and the timing was just right. 
I took about two weeks to plan (on and off) for CAD drafting. When seeing the knots go, feel just like playing a game. Knowing the restriction of the CNC machine, plus making sure the Celtic knot proportion is right, then have to calculate the total repeat pattern to be fit into their rings sizes. 
At first glance, I though the man ring is more difficult to do but most of the time, I was struggle with the lady's simple knot design. The man's ring was blacken underneath, which highlighted the complicated knots texture. 
Her wedding band is perfectly match to the engagement ring. (as you can see from the pictures) The rings picture was taken with her black fine embroiderer blouse and everything just came out right. Their stylemaah....

House of Chimney Wedding Ring?

i receive this rough design sketch via email

Ring surface: Mirror Finishing

Front and back surface finishing: Matte

Sculpture ring design

Material: Palladium Silver

I never talk to the owner of the ring but his best friend. They are from UK. The only information I got for this custom made ring design is the rough sketch. Not even the ring size. He wanted it to be silver so I recommend him a better quality palladium silver.
We meet the best friend at Ikea in one morning. With nice coffee, hot dog, curry puff and ice cream, we chat for two hours more. We took 20% of the time to discuss about the ring design and the rest was about life. This is always the best part of my work. Meeting and sharing though with  people from differences backgrounds and experiences. Chin and me take turn chatting with him and taking care of our two princesses. (Sign!)
I never have a chance to know the origin of design ideas. Anyway, its structure create a house of chimney picture in my mind.
