Wood Rings and Bright Blessings.

Back in March of this year, we had a lovely first contact from Emily and Peter. Emily wrote:
"My partner Peter and I are getting married this August and have been thinking about wedding rings. We've enjoyed exploring your website, learning your story, and admiring the beautiful rings! We really appreciate you commitment to a sustainable livelihood and rings."

While we got to know each other, we learned that Emily was just finishing up her dissertation on communities transitioning from fossil fuels toward local economies, while Peter was working with an alternative energy company.  They both love gardening, bike riding, the outdoors and enjoy time with their friend and families.    

Peter and Emily decided on Magnolia Wood for their rings; hers with a narrow offset inlay of turquoise, jade and eliat stone. Their celebration was in August and they sent us a lovely note shortly after their wedding with a few photos that they've kindly agreed we may post.

"Thanks so much for the wonderful rings! Our ceremony was this past weekend at a nearby hostel/farm, and it worked out wonderfully. David (he and Alison also have Touch Wood Rings) led a part of the ceremony in which the rings were passed among our guests and blessed by each one of them - it's really great to have the thoughts of our closest family and friends with us all the time.
Here are some pictures from our wedding (the rings, us, and us wearing the rings with David and Alison's youngest child Yonah).
Thanks again - we love them!  Peter & Emily"

Our love and very best wishes go out to Emily and Peter as they move forward together into a bright future.  Another dynamic, intelligent, loving couple who have committed to each other and to making a positive difference in the world.  Bright Blessings to you both.  We look forward to great things from you.
