Commissioning a Seaglass Ring

I have lots of requests for seaglass rings, from local and Overseas customers.
Thanks to modern technology the commissioning process is pretty seamless and super easy, allowing me to custom make a ring to your size, colour preference and desired metals.

First I get an idea of the colours you want, this is usually narrowed down via images captured from my instagram feed.
I choose some nuggets of seaglass that I think best represent the selection and send those pics to you via email, messenger or instagram direct messaging.
Then, depending on your choice, we talk about the style of setting, size of setting and the size of the shank (the band) as well as the metals you would like.

Next it is imperative we get the size correct, so you may have to head off to a high street jeweller and have your finger measured for me. I don't advocate trying to size your finger yourself by using string or paper, as inevitably the size will be inaccurate.

Once I have all the information I need I may take up to a week to finish the ring. I send you images along the way as well of the finished piece.

We work from a little studio at the back of Kriket’s house. Our days are filled with hard work and lots of laughs. We obsess over each piece of glass, setting aside really unique one-off pieces for pendants, rings or bangles, and hunting down as many pairs as we can for earrings.
