deliasthompson: inspiring custom silver
set of three customized sterling stackable rings
deliasthompson was a featured etsy seller a while back and i was so taken by her gorgeous and unique hammered rings and bracelets. each of the three sterling rings above can be stamped with up to 37 characters of a quote, poem, or what-have-you, and they can be stacked or worn as singles.
i love that the "meaning" of these rings is somewhat hidden when worn -- they would make a powerful, beautiful gift for the bride or her sister/lady-of-honor, or even inscribed with vows as an amazing non-traditional wedding band. seems especially appropriate for women who love words -- the literate bride, if you will ;)
two-sided custom inspirational sterling bangle
the bracelets can take longer quotes and poems, up to 120 characters for *each* side -- again, such a beautiful and personal gift. one of the best things about etsy -- the ability to connect with someone who can make a completely customized work of art, just for you.
if these aren't currently offered for sale in her shop just check the "sold" items to see more photos, or send her a note. the bracelets would be great to give each member of the bridal party -- they come in a standard 2.5" size but can be made larger or smaller as needed. also, check out the one specifically for a sister, with a lovely and moving poem by the artist.
based in atlanta, delia also makes some amazing filigree jewelry -- more below, or at deliasthompson.etsy.com
