Custom portrait engagement gift ring holder wedding keepsake for a couple handmade from soft clay, hand drawn and painted with an image of where "It all began..." and personalized with the bride and grooms names, initials and wedding or engagement date.

Time frame to create this custom keepsake is currently about 1-2 weeks

You will need to supply the image you would like to have painted. Google images should work fine if you don't have one on hand. Keep in mind that the image space on the ring dish about 3x2.5 inches.

Please note that I do not create portraits of people.


(1) Send your image to me through Etsy convo's or E-MAIL your image to cathie.carlson [!at] yahoo.com

(2) Include the place Where It All Began and couples names in the "notes to seller" section when making your purchase.

(3) Personalized note if this is being shipped as a gift

Due to time constraints and the fact that the true color of glazes cannot be seen until after they have been kiln fired, I do not send proofs of my pieces. However, I do send an image of my custom gifts as soon as they have been sketched, painted and fired.

This one of a kind ring holder was first created in 2014 for a customer who wanted to capture an image of the college where she and her fiance met. Since then I have sketched and painted many other buildings and landscapes that capture special memories or engagement sites for newly engaged couples.

**** Due to the incredible amount of time and work put into each and every custom piece created I cannot offer discounts for multiple orders. Thank you for understanding. *****


I'm obsessed with the ring dish and can't wait to gift it to my future sister-in-law. It makes me wish my husband and I met in college! Very beautifully crafted. Thank you!

It is beautiful!! I absolutely love it!! They are going to flip out! We all work for the Royals so this is going to be so fun to give to them!! Thank you so much for your time and effort into these one of a kind gifts!


The 3.75 inch ring holders are handmade to order from soft clay, stamped with the couples names or initials and kiln fired to a bisque state. Afterwards I sketch the custom building, landscape or home portrait onto the dish in pencil then outline the drawing with black glaze. The design is hand painted with non-toxic, lead-free pottery glaze colors, signed on the back then fired once again to a beautiful, long lasting gloss finish.

I send an image of the dish as soon as it has been sketched, painted and fired.

Dishwasher safe - but washing by hand is recommended.

Keepsake ring holders will be gift packaged and carefully shipped to ensure a successful journey from my studio. Please let me know if you would like a gift note included in the package.
