Beyond repair?

First of all, wow! Exactly where has summer season gone? How can it probably be September presently???

This is only heading to be a short blog, but I just needed to share a minimal repair service work that I’ve been functioning on these days. The consumer originally sent me an email a number of months in the past, as she’d been advised by a significant street jeweller that her sentimental gold dress ring, wasn’t in a position to be resized. Que that little evil bit in my mind that just would like to establish them mistaken and exhibit that it IS possible, and voila! One resized garnet and pearl gown ring. Certainly, it IS a sensitive ring, so she’s not likely to be capable to use it each day, but at minimum it now CAN be worn, alternatively than currently being destined to sit in a box eternally!

Certainly, you can see the sign up for if you glimpse intently, but in some cases it’s not all about completely hiding the new element. This ring was about preservation and producing it wearable once again.
