It was nice to be doing some wax carving again after so long away from it! Ive been teaching the ins and outs to all of my students but not had an opportunity to do any myself so it feels outrageously good to be let loose on the harder wax with some files and a scalpel at last. Im making a bespoke rippling water wedding band for a certain someone who must not be named and it feels a bit exciting. The ripples are yet to be softened with sand paper and polishing but I feel like its going to be a good one. I love working upwards with softer waxes and always find working down so much harder so its a fun challenge and also important to stop myself from getting too rusty. #atthebench #jewellerymaking #waxcarving #challenging #hannahrings #ripplering #weddingband

I just got an order for a new version of this beautiful little ring. Theyre a bit stressful to make because these mudlarked garnets have so many natural inclusions and flaws so they can explode during the stone in casting process. Also its impossible to predict how the colour of the stone will change. But the end result is beautiful enough to make all the fretting worth it. #castnotset #stoneincast #18crtgold #uniquejewellery #bespokejewellery #hannahrings #mudlarking #mudlarkgarnet #thamesgarnet #naturalstone

Teaching is heavenly. Trying to cram a million things into one class with the lovely @rowan_macgregor It was really amazing go to have such an adventurous and open minded student and exciting to have four pieces ready to go to the casters tomorrow. Now we know that we have everything lined up for lesson number two next weekend and a bunch of ideas for the next. #jewelleryclass #ringmakingcourse #hannahrings #makeyourown #waxcarving #waxsculpting

A few more gold plated mudlark hand pendants choosing their garnets. I just love this bit of my job. I collect the garnets myself along the Thames - its amazing to think how long they have been sitting there after an epic boat ride over from India. So much history in such a small and characterful stone. #talisman #mudlark #thamesgarnet #jewellery #pendant #garnet #mensjewellery #luckycharm #hannahrings #theshopfloorproject

I just found this sweet little prototype tourmaline ring in one of my boxes. Its part of a series of sea creatures that I was working on a few years ago. Its a little lonely barnacle and is kind of elegant in its lumpy, funny way. I think I might get it gold plated and see what happens. #barnaclering #oldwork #studiopiece #hannahrings #tourmaline #jewellerydesign #prototype #barnacle #seacreatures

Halfway through my week of big skies and mountains. Its a pretty unbelievable spot with its blue skies, torrential rain and eerie abandoned buildings. #stolenresidency #dolomites #arttechnician

Making these little stands for my sister is so much more complicated than I thought it would be. Im rather enjoying it. #assistantsister #thatsnotjewellery

Disturbingly organised studio. Im making stands for my wondrous sister and it pays to know where everything is for this task. Quite a different flavour to yesterdays efforts. #atthebench #jewellerystudio #artassistant #sotidy

This is a close up of the meteorite earring with its pearl and burnt gold bead. Its such a sweetheart and actually surprisingly light. Even though its officially an earring its going to live on some weaving by @emmafitts #collaboration #jewellery #meteorite #goodcombinations
Thu, 16/08/2018 - 12:54am
And thats approximately how its going to be. What a weird and wonderful project with fossils, meteorites, pearls, atlas mountain stones, #robupritchard pebble rings and mudlarked oddities to decorate some absolutely stunning weaving by the clever @emmafitts Best studio day ever. #collaboration #madness
