Our wedding ring revamp began with a visit to Zeal Metal in May, 2009. We'd chop up and combine our three wedding rings into a fresh, funky set of two. Disorganization delayed the decision until October 2009. The weekend before my diagnosis, we decided: If the news was good, we'd go ahead with the revamp. Otherwise, we'd shelve it. Following my diagnosis, October 2009, we came up with a third option. If treatment went well, we'd revamp our three rings into a set of four. For Lucy, Bayla, Mark and myself. To commemorate. To celebrate. More than two years later, the project is still in progress. Here are some visuals from along the way...
|June 17, 2009 Initial Design. The diamond is part of the plan.|
|March 19, 2011 Ready for remake. Sans diamond (my teeny diamond disappeared on December 8, 2010).|
|March 31, 2011 Spinner ring stamping options. Lucy chose North-South-East-West. Mark chose tilted. Bayla and I chose spiralling.|
|May 16, 2011 In progress.|
|June 10, 2011 All four rings are done! And beautiful!|
|July 2, 2011 Back where they belong. Huge thanks to Nicole Horlor of Zeal Metal.|
