Date Night Printing

Last weekend, my husband invited me to meet him in the city after work for dinner and a date. We had a long overdue sushi date followed by an Open House at the 1890 Bryant Street Studios. One of his co-workers is married to a paper-maker/book binder and we were so fascinated by everything from the antique manual printing presses to her handmade books and artwork, we barely got around to visiting some of the other artists.

I love this garnet ring. We bought multiple loose garnets last year during our trip to Prague and commissioned a few pieces I wanted. This ring is one of them. I wasn't sure what I was going to get because they didn't have the setting I wanted and I tried to describe how I wanted the oval set in yellow gold and the jeweler made me a basic drawing and described what he could do. We paid for everything including shipping upfront and came home. I thought he said I would have the ring in 3-4 weeks and figured it would make a great anniversary gift. It turned out he meant 3-4 months and I didn't get my ring until December. I love how delicate it is and how many compliments I get on the vintage feel of it.

We had a great time in San Francisco and it was a much needed break for us.  It was fun to get away by ourselves for a bit.
