Valerie from BLEACHBLACK posted a photo of her mother’s, Vickie’s, wedding ring and we had to know more! So here is her story…
The following is contributed by Vickie Killeen:
“I’ve always loved faux bois jewelry, and how it mimics nature. I was lucky to have found this setting at all, especially after I left the original inspiration ring miles away in Sausalito. Those were the days before internet cheap earringscapability.
So, my patient fiancee and I went to a local jewelry store, and searched through 25 catalogs of yawn-inducing, traditional ring settings, and, there it was!
