Hello Friends! It’s been a whirlwind of activity since the launch of Gary Dawson Designs last June. With not quite 10 months under the belt of this business model, I think we’ve managed to attract and execute some of the most interesting projects of my 37 years of designing meaningful jewelry for my exceptional clients. Here’s one that presented an interesting challenge; a ring with a rotating top which features the client’s initial on one side and a cross shape on the other…
Another very interesting recent project was the reproduction of a ring found in an archeological dig. As a custom designer, I’m normally not willing to reproduce a design found elsewhere, mainly for ethical reasons. While the process of communication often involves looking at examples of things that a particular client finds interesting (both on the Gary Dawson Designs website and objects from other sources) this exercise is mostly used to help to define our new project and doesn’t normally involve direct reproduction. But in this case, the idea of reproducing this ring was appealing from several perspectives. It was for me, an opportunity to “get inside the head” of an ancient craftsman…both interesting and fun!
And this pendant in 18K white gold was completed with birthstones for Mom in the middle, her kids on the next ring out, and her grandchildren on the outer ring.
And finally, here’s a new item that will immediately become available for sale in the “available now” section of our website…The theme here should be fairly obvious!
