These were exactly what we asked for! And since they are handmade they are unique and not perfect, which is nice because neither are we (my husband and I). Thank you so much! They are comfortable and durable!

Organic Nature Inspired Wedding Rings - EcoFriendly and Made to Order!
I am a full time artist and loving it! I specialize in organic style wedding bands using 100% recycled metal. I make other jewelry as well a variety of other artistic mediums. I love to paint, though rarely have the time for it! When I can find the time, I do a little screen printing, make note cards, knit and whatever else seems fun and interesting. I'm also a yoga teacher!
I have a fabulous studio full of tools I've been collecting over the past few years. I suppose "tool collecting" could be considered a hobby! I like to think of it as a need :)
I graduated from the Univ. of GA in 2003 with a degree in Jewelry and Metalsmithing and am so happy I've been able to make it my "job".
I stay busy doing mostly wedding rings and throw in a few other pieces now and then. I don't currently have any employees, but I think about it often. Between answering emails, photographing work, creating new listings, the blog, fb, twitter and various social networking postings, packing and shipping? actually creating the work? Sometimes I wish I had a clone. I will have an intern for a short time this summer, so who knows, maybe it'll develop in to something!
I love what I do though and take pride not only in my work, but in the service I am able to provide to all the happy and in love clients I have! I like to think that its not just a ring that I'm selling, but a little piece of beauty and happiness. It comes from a place of love to a home where it will be loved.
Trees are my favorite, though nature in general is extraordinarily inspiring. There are so many amazing textures and elements. Its fun to do research and learn about so many different aspects of the world around us. I'm constantly thinking of new ideas of wedding rings. Pinterest inspiration boards are so fabulous!
And, because nature is so important to me, I make sure that all the metal I use is 100% recycled. I order exclusively from Hoover and Strong - a wonderful company that cares about the environment. You can read more about their Harmony metals if you're interested - https://beta.hooverandstrong.com/harmony
I donate to a number of organizations through the year (sierra club, habitat for humanity, npr), but make a monthly donation to greenpeace. i'm making some changes to my business this summer and hope to add a few more charities to my monthly roster.
All of my ring designs are customizable and available in just about any metal, width or thickness. And if you have a nature theme you'd like made in to a ring, just ask!

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders
My standard timeline is around 4 - 6 weeks. During busier periods or for more custom orders, the timeline may be longer. This does not include shipping time. My current timeline is listed in my announcement or individual item.
Ring sizes available 1 - 16 including 1/2, 1/4 and 1/8 sizes. I have ring sizers available if you do not know your size. Wide rings fit differently than very narrow rings. Fingers also change size, by season and also throughout the day! Fit can also be a personal preference - some like a tighter fit, while others prefer something looser, just not so loose to fall off.
If you have questions about finding the right fit, just ask! I don't have enough space to include my full instructions for sizing.
Take off any rings while in a hot tub or pool (or swimming). The chemicals are really bad and rings are more prone to falling off in bodies of water such as lakes... never to be found again. If a ring is worn every day, the metal and patina will wear - some metals faster than others. Wearing everyday will also keep it tarnish free for most people. If you take your jewelry off frequently and don't wear it for awhile, most metals will start to oxidize - particularly if you leave them sitting on a bathroom counter, so don't do that unless you're wanting the metal to tarnish. Save the box the jewelry was shipped in as a place to store your piece to keep it safe when not being worn.
Gift wrapping and packaging
All of my items come in boxes ready for giving.
Most of my rings are not available for wholesale, however I do wholesale other jewelry.
What metals do you use?
All of my metals are 100% recycled.
Gold Alloys: 14k and 18k yellow, rose, peach, green or palladium white gold
Silver/Palladium alloy - AGPD - 58% silver, 25% palladium, 15% copper 2% zinc
Sterling Silver - 92.5% fine silver, 7.5% copper. This is a standard sterling alloy.
Palladium Sterling Silver - 92.5% fine silver, roughly 4.5% copper and 3% palladium
Argentium Sterling Silver - 92.5% fine silver, 7.5% argentium and copper
Palladium and Platinum are options for most designs, but require longer timelines.
Do you do engrave on the inside of rings?
Yes - there are listings available that provide more details.
Do you have samples?
I have some samples of many ring designs but not all. If you are interested in seeing a sample, just ask! There is a deposit required that is refundable or goes toward the purchase of the final rings. There is a shipping charge that covers shipping both ways and a return address label is included for convenience. The shipping charge is non-refundable.
Cancellation of custom orders
As stated in the regular policies - for a ready to ship item, the order must be cancelled within 2 hours. Some days I am able to package and mail out an item within a very short period of time. For custom orders that have a long timeline, cancellations can be made before the item has been created. Please contact me with any issues.
