It was a real privilege to make Irwin Sparkes (lead singer of the Hoosiers) and Jacq's wedding rings a few months ago. It was a joy to work with such a lovely couple who were equally excited to have their rings made for them.
One relaxed evening we all met at my studio with our mutual friend Laura and chatted over a glass of wine whilst I introduced them to the world of jewellery making and looked at the options for their wedding rings.
Both rings were clean, simple and classic. However Jacq's ring was made to fit neatly around her Tiffany engagement ring which was quite an unusual shape. A standard straight ring wouldn't have worked. So we looked at different shaped options and settled on this contemporary design which complimented her engagement ring beautifully and can also be worn on its own.
"As a jewellery novice (previously the only wares I'd worn had come from a Christmas cracker) I had no idea of what to expect. You took me by the hand and made the whole process a real pleasure and an effortless one. Visiting the studio to decide what we wanted could have been an evening of mere logistics but you made it feel like a continued celebration of getting engaged. I wouldn't go anywhere else for my bling. I'm so glad I'm able to sport a Mansell original for the rest of my days. We're so lucky to have you!" IRWIN SPARKES
"I just wanted to get in touch and say a huge thank you for our wedding rings! You did such a wonderful job and I can't tell you how much I love it. I'm already thinking about the Eternity ring to complete the set!" JACQ
Congratulations Jacq and Irwin!
