Wooden Rings and Gentle Souls

Black walnut, birch and ash wood rings for a mid-October wedding.

Our rings are absolutely beautiful! The colors of the woods look great on my very fair skin as well as my husband’s very dark skin. I know that we will receive many compliments on our unique and beautiful rings!

"Now I understand all the responses I read on the blog. It really isn't possible to put words to how beautiful and special the rings are! When I touched his ring it was so impossibly light and alive. And elegant!
The joy on his face when he saw the ring was gorgeous. He kept repeating in wonder: "I've never seen anything like this", "I couldn't possibly have imagined something so beautiful" and "this is a living thing". After he'd been wearing it for a couple of hours he said that he felt like it was magic and elven. He loved the design and the lightness of the ring and the way the look of the wood changes in all the different lights throughout the day. And as a woodworker himself, he is so appreciative of David's skill and talent working with the wood in the way that he does. He also loved the card and the ring holders! I told him all about working with you and finally got to show him your website when we got home. :) Oh, and thanks for your advice about going to 11.25 -- the ring fits him just perfectly!
My rings are at once simple and breathtaking. As soon as I held them, I also realized that wearing treasured rings that are durable but need ongoing care is a wonderful metaphor for a committed relationship. Many thanks and much love"

Koa, ash, purpleheart, juniper heart wood and maple wood rings.

Our rings are ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL! We LOVE them! We can't thank you enough. Everyone that we have showed them to is fascinated that we have wooden rings. They think it is the coolest thing. (so do we!) We appreciate the loving care David puts into each ring, it makes it so much more special than going to some random jewelry store and picking a run-of-the-mill ring that hundreds of other people have. We wish you continued success and happiness.

Their wooden wedding rings ~ his blackwood with a rose wood band and hers of rose wood with a ecalyptus liner. And her engagement ring ~ created with the same blackwood and koa as his wedding ring.

It was so much smaller than anything I could have imagined. And absolutely beautiful. I loved it immediately and I can't believe how much more I have grown to love it in the space of just two days. The grain in the koa is so incredible, and the colour so rich. I love the beautiful finish, the lightness and feel of it on my finger. It's perfect in every way. Thank you for creating a piece that so aptly represents our love - very unique and incredibly beautiful.

"On Friday night we went back to the pier that we got married on and said our vows to each other again and gave each other the rings. It was wonderful and we feel so great about our natural, handmade rings; more meaningful than we could have ever imagined! "

She said yes! Just wanted to send you a few pictures of our engagement. Patty loves the ring - it was a perfect choice! Thank you again for all your help and advice, it really paid off!

"Wow!" is the closest I can come to descibing the intricate detail and beauty that this ring possesses. The ring looks so nice against his skin tone. I just love it! Working with you guys has been such an amazing experience. I really admire y'alls lifestyles and your positive happy attitudes! It has been such a pleasure."

Oak wood rings ~ hers with a willow band and his with a cedar band.

"Our rings are BEAUTIFUL!!!! Thank you so much, we love them. We are both very happy we decided to stick with the willow and cedar on oak. The willow is like a band of gold on the oak, the different grains and texture provide a wonderful contrast and I feel very happy that it worked out so well. The cedar on the oak is beautiful and not only does its deep reddish brown look lovely against the oak, but the contrasting grains complement each other nicely. We really appreciate the work you put into our rings and the time you spent with us discussing the wood choices. These three woods have a good deal of symbology and personal meaning to us and it means a lot to us that they are incorporated into our wedding bands. Once again, thank you so much."
