Mulberry, Serviceberry, Chokecherry and Cherry
Is there a type of wood you really love or a tree that's special to you?
Can you picture wearing a ring made from a branch of that tree?
Here are a few examples of David's 'Branch Wood Rings'.
Bill's Mulberry, Apple and Oak Woods above and
his Mulberry Ring with Apple and Oak inlays
That's Kathy and Val's Serviceberry Wood above and the
Serviceberry Rings David created with cross spiraled Lapis Lazuli inlays
bordered by narrow Maple
It's a little like Christmas morning when a parcel arrives with a branch or a rock or a little envelope of dried flower petals from some other corner of the world.
Someone has thoughtfully gathered and packaged those things and they've entrusted us to make them something beautiful from their raw materials ~ something worthy of their feelings for their beloved. It's a humbling thing.
Kristen and Dan sent this Chokecherry wood (from their wedding tree) and these are their Walnut and chokecherry rings.
Drop us an email if you like. We'll let you know how to choose your branch and how best to send your wood, or stones or shell (or coffee grounds or sage or sweetgrass :) just about anything that you'd like David to use a wee bit of in your ring.
It's one way to make your ring extra special and have it tell your own unique story.
Here's the stone and shell Abby sent
and her Cherry Wood
And the ring David created for her beloved.

The possibilities are endless. We look forward to hearing your ideas. As always ~ thanks so much for stopping by.
