Hi everyone, I have decided to do a “Meet the Designer” in the form of quick fire questions to let you know a bit about myself before I begin writing my blogs!

It was specially made for my tiny size F ring finger, which suited me as I love nothing more than to be different! We’re getting married in Lake Como, Italy, on 7/06/17 – the same anniversary as both our parents.
