Kind Words

She said yes!  I think I've earned a few browny points for it being made from slate and from the mine beside where she grew up. It is a very unique piece, so thank you for helping me to plan, execute and deliver a very special piece of art.  I would happily recommend you to anyone wanting to have something as beautiful as the ring
