Stephanie's Willow Ring

Back in February David made this dainty little ring for Stephanie.

She designed her size 3 1/2 ring using Willow, Grayed Maple and Rosewood.
Stephanie was so lovely to work with.
In July we received a heartwarming email from her titled 'Very Happy Customer'

Hi Nicola and David!
I am so satisfied with my ring! I absolutely love it. It is funny because I see people do a double-take when they see my ring and I love telling them where it came from and what it means to me. It is a powerful symbol and a work of Art that I can wear everyday. This ring speaks to me because of where it came from and who made it. The idea that you both do so much to give back to the Earth and to appreciate what it has to offer makes you both very special, and I have the greatest appreciation for that!
I am attaching some photos from our wedding.
Thank you for everything!
Peace & Love,
Kevin & Stephanie

Congratulations Stephanie and Kevin and Thank You for sharing those photos, and for your kind words. You truly do embody the essence of the happy couple! May it ever be thus.

Wooden Rings in the Green Mountains

Working with folks who are planning to surprise someone with a custom designed wooden ring, whether it's a marriage proposal or a birthday or anniversary gift, is always an honour and most enjoyable for us. We meet the most delightful and interesting people through Touch Wood Rings.

Keith first wrote to us in July with his desire to propose to his partner David with a special, meaningful and unique engagement ring. Over the next few months he and I chatted about all sorts of things from the qualities of different woods to Hurricanes and Grizzly Bears.

By early fall he had his commissioned Touch Wood Rings in hand. We received this happy email from Keith the other day.“It was a perfect setting in the Green Mountains of Vermont surrounded by trees with these special rings made from trees.”

Keith proposed to his love on a crisp snowy fall afternoon in the Green Mountains of Vermont. The answer was Yes when Keith asked David “if he would Grow Old and In Love with him for the rest of their Lives.” And he thanked us for “taking part in the memory that will live in our hearts a lifetime.”

Thank you Keith. What an absolute pleasure working with you.
We’ll join you in that prayer; May you and David grow old together in love and happiness.
