The Last Rings
This photo series is a documentation of the journey my father took as he set out to make the very last set of rings of his long career in jewellery making. My father relocated his jewellery workshop to the attic of our 3 bed semi back in the 1980s after losing his business and since then, has created beautiful and intricate pieces for friends and neighbours, hidden away in his dimly lit workshop. The unfortunate on-set of arthritis has meant that he has had to work through the pain barrier to create anything but with my own wedding just around the corner, he was determined to make one last journey up the ladder and into the attic to create the all-important rings for our all-important day.
