I was recently commissioned by Sony Australia to create a ring for the musician Harry Styles to welcome him to Australia as part of his current world tour. We went over different options and decided on a set of white gold rings with my signature stamping. I like the writing on my rings to be cryptic. I change the direction of the letters making the writing look a bit hieroglyphic...I like the fact that the wearer knows exactly what is written but in public it looks abstract. With Harry's ring Sony wanted me to use his tour title 'Treat people with kindness'. I thought that was a great idea until my contact with Sony asked me what I thought about doing the phrase in Latin. Brilliant! so we went with that. 'Agam beneficio populi'. In Between each word I have set either a tiny black or white diamond to add a bit of bling.
