wedding

 

 

I design and make wedding rings with the intention to express love, respect, passion and a long lasting commitment between two people. Love is for everyone not just for Adam and Eve! I'm very happy to help you to choose the right wedding ring for you and your partner. I love to add stories and secrets into my work. For example interconnecting spirals on both wedding rings or curves that slide into each other and match perfectly together. Examples of this you will find in my collection.

 

How it works:

Your commission starts with a chat! This may be done via email, phone or in Person. If we are not able to meet in person don't worry, email will also work just fine. I work online regularly with many of my clients from all over the world.

I will ask lots of questions to get a feeling of your ideas. Sketchbook in hand we will draw our way through the conversation. A little background information also helps. How you met, your hobbies etc. This gives me a feel for your style and will help in creating a very personal pair of rings for you both. It's a good idea to do a quick sketch of your idea before we meet. It doesn't have to be a good drawing! A very bad scribble is a perfect starting point for us to work on.

If you are not really sure how the final piece should look it's also no problem. During our discussion I will offer you a few ideas and drawings until we find an idea that you are totally happy with.

Finally we will discuss which stones and precious metals to use. Once the design is fixed I can offer you a price and an approximate delivery time. Your piece will be handcrafted with love, care and fine attention to detail.

They are 4mm wide.

Rough and irregular! Just the kind of wedding rings that you will never worry about getting scratched. Infact every additional scratch will be symbol of the journey together.

14k Yellow Gold

I love this design. I've done it a few times and it always works out great. The wedding couple bring me a few leaves from their favourite tree. Maybe a tree that has a special meaning to their relationship. I then cast the leaf and forge it into a solid gold ring.

14k White Gold
An engagement ring that will broaden your horizons. Stefan sent me a photo of their apartment in Vienna. 
We decided to finish the upper edge of the ring with the mountain outline. Foreground, middle ground and background. Its unique and petite at just 3,0mm tall.

The Claddagh Ring. 14k Red Gold, 14k White Gold
The story of the Claddagh ring is a little patchy at best. They say that the hands represent faith and trust. The heart is love and the Crown represents loyalty (loyalty to the English crown??)
Legend says that a young Irish fisher boy was captured by pirates and sold into slavery in Africa. There he worked as a goldsmith until one day when he managed escape and make his way back to the seaside town of Claddagh in Co. Galway. He took with him his new found goldsmithing skill and The Claddagh ring was born.
In my version the hands are fists, a typical moorish symbol for faithfulness. Two spheres top and bottom representing unity. Of course the loyalty to the crown was scrapped! 
hope ya like them

14k Yellow Gold
Daniel and Simone sent me a very beautiful mail. They wanted to order two very special wedding rings. Rings that symbolize their life together.
They told me about their life and about their farm. We wrote emails back and forth discussing motifs and what they both have in common.
Then Simone said that they simply love to sit on their balcony after a good days work, talk together and enjoy the view.
"That's it!", I said.
"Can you send me a picture of what you see from your balcony".

The Julian Alps range. A beautiful spot and the inspiration for these two. The range of mountains and valleys helped me to create a three dimensional relief.

Intertwined wedding rings  /   14k Yellow Gold

These rings are simple yet intricate. Kinda like life ;)
Metal strands flow over each other, melting together to form a new shape and form.

 

"But let there be spaces in your togetherness and let the winds of the heavens dance between you. Love one another but make not a bond of love: let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls."

Kahlil Gibran

This was a very special piece to make. The Weißenbach is a river just down the road from my studio. The river is known to have extensive gold deposits. I carved a topographical map of the river bed and landscape into Austrian recycled white Gold. In the meantime Simon is searching for some pure yellow gold on the rivers edge.

14k White Gold, Finnish Labradorite
We wanted to symbolize the feeling of a mountain. The hard, rough and rugged surface contrasted with the soft sky above ones head.

Our lives are unique so why should we settle for mass production! Especially in the case of selecting wedding rings.
