A Double Banded, Double Sided Custom Dreams Ring
How Their Story Began
Caz and Chloe are besties, hailing from the UK and living their dream in Perth. They take advantage of the Oz weather-- creating run clubs and Blue Crush style surf groups, participating in triathlons, and training with Surf Life Saving Australia. I swear, they are hiding mermaid tails somewhere.
They grew frustrated with the active swimwear available to them and wanted a stylish and functional option. No wardrobe malfunctions, but no granny bums either, while sporting in the sea. One night between raucous laughter and bubbly beverages, they decided to create their own line, fusing fashion and functionality, CeaCea Swimwear.
A Gift to Remember
Chloe wanted to create a ring for her and Caz as a reminder of where they're going and why they started.
It's a powerful and life changing decision to follow your dreams.
She wanted both "follow your dreams" and "CeaCea" somewhere on the rings. So, we created the ring reversible, with one text on the front and one on the inside.
The Creation Process
After sawing the rectangles, stamping the letters, sizing the bands, and soldering one face to the strips, I formed them round to add the other side. I use a hot blue flame and delicate pick and melted metal to solder and fuse it together.
I sand, hammer, oxidize so the letters stand out, and buff, and the rings are done.

The inside passion:
Follow Your Dreams

Ladies, you are beYOUtiful and an inspiration. I loved to create these rings of meaning, to embody this chapter of your story. All the best of momentum and success as you ride this wave.
What would you put on your ring, inside and out? What's your reminder and the source?
