Some wonderful news from my elder daughter, Anna!  Her boyfriend, Nick, proposed to her while they were on vacation this past holiday - right after a tour of Graceland and bellies full of fried chicken (my favorite food, too)!

They are getting married August 4 here which is located between Chicago (where they live) and North Carolina.  It's a lovely location, especially for weddings.

And I'm honored to be asked to make her engagement ring and their wedding bands.  If you have been following my "oops" and "got it finally" process on my Facebook album, you know that I have been practicing - made 2 prototypes, one in copper and another in sterling, plus a floral embossed band in sterling.

Now, I am ready to tackle the real thing but this time in rubies, my mother's diamonds and gold!  Wish me luck and these should become fabulous family heirlooms!


  1. OMG Linda, how exciting! I am nervous about the gold and beautiful stones, and I'm not even in the same state! You know I'm rooting for you, can't wait to see them. They will be fabulous. Good luck my friend!


  2. Your prototypes are beautiful! I'm sure you'll do equally beautiful in gold. I've been way to scared to play with gold myself :) Can't wait to see the result!
