Full Circle Wooden Rings

We received a lovely letter the other day from Marta and Kevin. They have graciously allowed us to share their letter and these beautiful photographs. David and I think it is so wonderful that they were married near the trees that gave wood for their rings. It's such a full circle.

"... Kevin and I mailed pieces of wood from our land in New Mexico to you and David. He created our beautiful rings from pinion (pine) and juniper that we sent, and some of your own wood. We are in love with our rings (and each other :). We get so many compliments on them. We were married on our land, near the trees that provided branches for our rings.

From our vows:
"I give you this ring as a symbol of my love for you, let it be a reminder that I am always by your side. May our love continue to grow and strengthen like the trees that gave their branches for this ring’s creation."
Thank you again for creating such an amazing piece of love and art. These rings are extensions of us, they hold such energy.
Heartfelt thanks, Marta and Kevin"
