Wedding Season 2012 - retro or supersonic? April 06 2012

 While traditional weddings are still popular, this year is bringing back vintage in a big way. Couples are scouring vintage shops and thrift stores for every detail of their ceremony, from the dress to the ring to the flatware. Rustic is also gaining ground, with some receptions being held in ranch houses or even barns with dirt floors and barefoot brides in white. Nature-themed weddings are also high on many lists with tree bark decor, feathers, and furry creatures. Other brides are opting for completely unique one of a kind ceremonies that would be hard to pin down with a specific theme. Check out this wedding ideas group on for some cool ideas.

Hot trend for 2012: Infinity Rings January 18 2012


Minimalist jewelry is in fashion and one of the best examples of minimal style is the infinity ring. Our little infinity knot ring is made from narrow sterling silver wire and hand tied, then forged and hammered into any size you need. 

New Copper Latitude Longitude Ring January 03 2012

Today I've added a new design - my new copper latitude longitude ring. Lat/long jewelry is popular and for good reason. It is an exquisite way to remember a special place, all in a somewhat cryptic little package that really only has meaning for you, and maybe one other special someone.... I can personalize your lat/long ring with any location you like, along with an additional secret inner personalization of up to 25 characters including spaces. And the ring can be made in any size you like. 

A New Year of possibilities December 28 2011

It's so cliche, but so true - each New Year brings with it the potential for great things. It's a time for new beginnings and for starting over. It's a beautiful blank page that you can fill with the desires of your heart. For me, the year 2012 brings with it a big milestone - my 50th birthday. That's not until December, but it gives me some pegs on which to hang my thoughts and focus my activities. There are some things I'd like to accomplish before the big 5-0 hits a little under a year from now.

One of those things is to continue to bring you the very best my heart has to offer in terms of what I call functional art - sterling silver and solid gold rings that are custom made for you by my hands. Moving my base of operations to this independent site is a very important part of that accomplishment.

I'm looking forward to all that 2012 has in store for us, and I hope you are too. What are you hoping to accomplish in this New Year?
