Wish you a bubbly New Year!

December 31, 2011 2 min read

It's amazing how fast 2011 went by. It was an year with lot's of exciting changes. The customer response has been overwhelming in the last year. I am proud to have been a part in the life of so many newly weds and recently engaged clients by creating their custom rings that will stay with them for many years to come.

I finally made my Nodeform business a full time gig in 2011. It has been so much fun the last couple month working for myself. In September I went on a 6 month leave from my day job as an Architect to try to concentrate on really kicking this into the next gear. It took a while but the Holiday season finally paid off . I think it could be possible to be doing what I love and be able to support myself.  Tax season will show me if I am right or just an illusionist.

I learned a lot of new thinks and developed my skills. The Ring a Week (RAW)challenge was a great experience in trying to learn 3D modeling software. I did not make 52 designs in the end but it still helped me coming back to it from time to time and try something new. I will continue in the next year developing this a bit further and eventually even incorporate it into my ring production and custom designs.

I also started playing with rendering software in the last couple days. It's could be a nice way to be able to post new designs and material options without actually having to produce them in expensive precious metals and gem stones. This could keep my money, usually tied up in inventory stock, in my pockets until I actually get a order in. Well, I have to get better with the software until I can produce convince able images of how the finished piece will look.

With that  I thank all of my friends, fans and clients for your interest and support in my adventures. I wish you all a Happy New Year! Enjoy some bubbly treat tonight to celebrate New Eears Eve.

June's Birthstone Alexandrite
June's Birthstone Alexandrite

June 02, 2021 1 min read

One of June's birthstones is the magical Alexandrite. 💚💜 The other birthstone options for June are pearls and moonstones. All these are beautiful and enchanting. But pearls are very soft, moonstones are only a tad stronger. Both are not the great option for engagement rings and should be left for only occasionally worn rings or even better for necklaces and earrings. Alexandrites however are quite durable and perfectly suited to be worn daily in engagement or wedding rings. 💍

elegant!

My trillion Moissanite stud earrings exude an understated elegance. The bezel setting frames the dazzling stone, which is the perfect size for everyday wear.

above and beyond

I cannot say enough about how much I appreciate Konstanze's craftsmanship and customer service. My husband bought my engagement ring nearly three years ago from Nodeform and had to ask for some special requests during the buying process. Konstanze was extremely helpful and patient. The hoops my husband had to jump through to get this ring is one of the reasons why it is incredibly precious to me. So when the green moissanite chipped, I was heartbroken. I found a similar one on Konstanze's website recently, and she guided me through which one to buy that would fit the existing setting and answered all of my questions almost immediately. It was her awesome attention to detail and customer service that brought us back to her. I really cannot thank Konstanze enough and can't wait to have my gem replaced and ring back on my finger again. Thank you! (Attached picture is of the original engagement ring and green moissanite. :-) )

Amazing customer service and beautiful ring

Konstanze did an amazing job on this ring. She has amazing attention to detail and customer service to create a stunning custom ring. It looks even better in person than the photos. The subtle grey moissanite changes colour in different lighting from a very subtle to more obvious grey hue. Thank you for a ring I will cherish forever.

Charming and elegant

I love the elegant simplicity of this necklace and have been wearing it most days since it arrived! It is perfect and I love it.

Beautiful, quality work!

Great communication throughout the ordering process and while waiting for the custom order to be completed. The ring turned out beautiful and is very well made. My significant other loves it and has been receiving a lot of great compliments. Very happy with the purchase! (Purchased along with the Moissanite Round Full Bezel Set Star Dust Engagement Ring.)
