Thinking about sets for stockists and quite liking this gang. Its funny trying to group my work- I always think of each thing as unique but of course they really feed into each other as ideas develop and change so its quite nice to think about their story lines and their funny little transitions. #formingthegangs #creatingcollections #proposal #hannahrings #blobring #pearlsandturquoise

Im making a little engagement ring based on one of my mudlark ring designs. Its quite fun producing the mock ups. This is the first little play and Im already feeling pretty pleased. It has one of the Thames garnets that I found last weekend. Theres something really nice about the combination of the history of the stones and the fact I picked them up myself that makes the ring feel pretty special. #bespokering #alternativeengagmentring #hannahrings #mudlarked #thamesgarnet #commission

Two tiny, baby beluga whales from my class with @beckailling today. So sweet and a stunning class. It was so fun to watch you connect more and more with the work, Beck. I had a heavenly time. #makeyourownjewellery #hannahringsclass #jewellerycourse #waxsculpting #beluga #whale #charm

Such tiny fingers Flo has! This has been resized to be a pinkie ring and it has one of my gorgeous new garnets from this weekends mudlarking expedition. Its such a stunner- never before has such a tiny Thames garnet looked like such a giant!#resized #thamesgarnet #naturalfacets #mudlarkring #hannahrings #pinkiering

Sometimes things get worse before they get better.This is a stone in place casting test run and Im super happy with the result. The stone has changed quite a lot from the heat of the molten metal which is fun. I was worried that the garnet would simply shatter into a million bits. #experimentaljewellery #thamesgarnet #stoneinplace #castnotset #mudlarkring

Helping @rdeborman is always great because her jewellery is so spectacularly beautiful and you know you have a good trade in the books. #cleverfriends #swaps #helpingfriends #atthebench #metalwork

Two very delighted mudlarkers (although Viola is unlicensed) returned home with some brilliant treasures. Im not sure who is happier- me or Viola. #thamesriver #mudlarking #thamesgarnet #treasurehunting Sad I didnt see you @thames_larker

I went out for dinner the other night and was wearing so much jewellery. It was quite fun. Usually Im super minimal but maybe that habit is out the window.#bling #hannahrings #allthejewellery #wishfulthinking #octopusbracelet #dogring #lunamanring #wearitall

Im remaking an inherited ring because the original doesnt suit and @rebeccamaymarston wanted to be able to wear it with the rest of her jewellery. Its taken a bit of trial and error but finally Im happy with this carp design... now I just have to eke out a band that suits. #bespoke #diamondswithgold #carpring #fishring #hannahrings #commission #remake #inherited

Nice if brief meeting with the angelic @billyboynoyz about his bespoke hand pendant. Now he has the hard job of deciding what he wants and in what combination. Options: 1. Gold plated bronze hand or silver hand 2. Naturally formed mudlarked garnet, raw emerald, mudlarked broken aquamarine or raw mudlarked aquamarine. Hmmmm Billy- its a tough one. #bespoke #hannahrings #handpendant #naturalstones #eachoneunique

Thanks Rowan for being such a star.

Me and Jo joined forces to create an anniversary ring for his lucky partner. The blob has his fingerprints embedded in the wax so she can carry him around with her everywhere she goes. So exciting. I love the sentimentality of being a jeweller. It really makes it such a precious and wonderful job.

When your friends blow you away with their amazing generously and you want to explode with happiness its so nice to be a jeweller and to know which one is their favourite ring. This little ring has white gold band and my fingerprints embedded in a yellow gold blob. The stones are tourmaline. #gratitude #pinkiering #fingerprintring #bestformyfavourite #hannahrings #blobring

I gave myself a nice present the other day and finally gold plated my octopus bracelet. Im so happy with it. I love the colour of bronze but Im one of the unlucky people who go black/green when I wear it. #presentforme #octopusbracelet #goldplate

I have a brother who makes me tools. Sometimes when Im working I find that I dont have something I need and I describe it to him and then he makes that. But sometimes, like with this one, its just a surprise. Its so beautiful @steven.up you are such a wonderful generous man!#handmadetools #stevenupritchardtools #upritchardsbeingupritchards #waxandmetalworking #bestbrotherever
