My fiance is a software developer, so I had him convert a personal message into the binary system (a series of zeroes and ones), and I incorporated that into a white gold custom ring. The square holes in the wedding ring represent each occurrence of the number 0, and solid metal represents the number 1.

The wedding ring sets had such a reaction on social media that I was encouraged to take the plunge and re-open my beloved Etsy store and even include it as my featured handmade jewelry piece. I made it as easy as possible for others to get their messages personalized into their custom jewelry in Sterling Silver, 18k Gold, or 18k White Gold. They just choose their message when they place the order, and I convert it to binary and immortalize it in the precious metal of their choice. The great thing is that it’s not only for weddings that people are asking about these because anything can be translated into binary; a special event, a child’s name, even a family pet (that was a big hit!).

It’s been a long time since I’ve been able to sit down to do any design work, so it’s nice to be back and actually to feel like a jewelry designer again. The support and response to this unique jewelry have meant a lot and made our upcoming special day even more special.

I’m getting married later this year, but currently being a full-time mum meant that we couldn’t afford wedding rings. Luckily, I’m a silversmith, so I decided to make them myself
