Some of you may remember Lucky Canuck's short lived blog, and have heard me mention her here - either as Lucky or Susan. She occasionally guest blogs, or I have highlighted some of her fabulous creations, whether they be crochet, knit, sewing, beading, card making, jewellery... She and I are each other's enablers, and we haunt knitting shows and sales together, and when one finds a new craft, the other usually follows (thanks for the polymer clay jewellery kits, Susan - I cant wait to start them!)
Well, Susan is about to embark on a new journey, and has allowed me to announce it. She's getting married! Susan and G. have known each other a while, and since this is the second time around for each of them, they have gone a little less traditional, and I love it!
Here's the ring:

And here's her words as she described it to me:

The ring, presented last night is 18k matte gold with a green peridot setting. Designed by Eles Designs, Toronto. Completely unorthodox, non-traditional, chosen by me and all my style. I am marrying the best guy in the world for me. Plus, he has a nice craft room waiting for me in his house.

Stay tuned as Susan lets me document the plans - you should see what we have in store for the dress! (I've known about this for a while, and we have had many an intense email discussion about dress, flowers, jewellery, etc.)

I've NEVER seen a ring like that. The finish on the gold is really cool and the stone is beautiful. It sounds like this will be an interesting story to follow. :-)

That is a beautiful ring! Elegant, and the matte finish goes perfectly with the peridot.

Please pass along my very best wishes to LC. And a hug 2 plz.

The ring is beautiful. Of course, green is my colour. Can't wait to see dress plans.

That's wonderful news. Congrats. That was a smart move checking out his compatibility with your craft obsession before marriage. I know it was a requirement in a husband for me. You'll make a wonderful pair.
