Mike (the Ringman) Albertsen's Profile

About

I Specialize in hand made sterling silver rings. Some are accented with 14kt gold. I design a large size original ring out of the metal itself soldering on parts and cutting out designs, then we cast them and cut them down to smaller sizes. I hand set rings on-the-spot at craft shows so the process has to move fast. I almost exclusively use lab-grown gemstones in my cast settings because they are calibrated to exact dimensions and fit easily into the setting. Sometimes I'll find a natural stone that will fit into my settings.

I also make wire-wrapped bead rings with natural and glass beads. Some of the other style of rings I make are solitaire rings, three-stone rings, 2-5 stone mother's rings, animal rings, toe rings, thumb rings, pinky rings, knuckle rings, bride's maid rings, & wedding rings.

I've been wire-wrapping rings since I was 8 years old. I taught myself by copying my dad's designs. I soon started apprenticing under my father ♛ John the Ringman ♛. We grew up on the road in an RV until I had to start school. My first startup business was selling polished rocks out of a fishing toolbox in 1st grade. We moved to Wisconsin in 1996 and started doing art fairs in WI, MN, IL, ND, IA, MO & ID. Dad passed in 2012, my brother and I split the family business in half and I'm now carrying on the family tradition. I was in Iowa for several years but now I'm back in Austin, Texas. I was born in San Antonio. Focusing on art shows in Texas, and online.
