Kinship and Wooden Rings

Linda and Al  ... Designed beautiful rings of Hawaiian Koa and Birch and incorporated inlays of sand from a spot that has special significance to them.  David made their rings in February this year.

In one of our early conversations Linda wrote "We had to dig thru some fairly deep snow to get to the sand and not to mention that the area where we pulled the sand was the site of a military operation underway in Yellowknife so we had to deal with security as well! LOL The easy part (was) mailing it out to you."

Married April 2012 in Tofino.
 Touch Wood Rings

"Just when we couldn't believe how beautiful the photos of our rings were, they arrived at our doorstep!  We are truly overwhelmed with our beautifully crafted rings.   Throughout the process you made us feel like we were sitting at your kitchen table, sharing a cup of coffee, watching the birds while David crafted perfection into our wedding rings."

"Nicola and David we are unsure what lead us to you, after all we live in the diamond capital of Canada and our area has a strong history of gold mining.  Initially, I do think Al was surprised (or relieved!!) that I didn't want a diamond, the rings you have crafted for us feel exactly right for who we are and what our marriage will mean to us.  We are grateful that we were lead to you and thank you from the bottom of our hearts."

Linda, from our first emails I felt like I was talking with an old friend.  
It's great to have met you and Al and it was lovely working with you.  Take care of each other and thanks for coming into our lives.
