Leigh commissioned me to make a ring for his daughter's upcoming grad. He had had a really good idea about what she wanted which always helps me out a lot! He came in with some pictures and an assortment of stones. He purchased some emeralds and rubies at an auction 30 years ago and wondered if we should use them. The stones were not the best quality, but I just love the idea of him having them well before he started a family and now having one go in his daughters ring. That is what I think is so amazing about jewelry- the stories that go beyond the physical piece.
