I love creating handmade rings. My husband says that when I am in my workshop, I get into the "zone". I'm blissfully unaware of time, my surroundings, and stress. My heart rate drops because I am relaxed, fully embracing the joy of making. The metal and my hands work together to form something beautiful, for you. I've dedicated a large part of my life to this pursuit and it makes me happy. I hope it makes you happy too!

I didn't realize how wildly popular jewelry was with the world (let alone handmade rings!) until I opened my first store on Etsy. To be honest, if i had known how many creators were out there making jewelry and trying to sell it, I wouldn't have even tried. But I went into it blindly out of the sheer love of making, without a thought for the vast competition I was about to face. I didn't even notice the naysayers until much later! (You know, the ones who say, don't even try because there's just too much saturation in the handmade jewelry market.)

It didn't take long for me to discover ring making and I fell in love with it, I fell hard. There's just something special about rings as an adornment for our body. I think it is because we humans have a very intimate relationship with our hands... wow! Doesn't that just make your head spin? We use our hands in just about everything we do! So when we put a ring on our hand, it is something we will see hundreds of times in the course of the day. It is an object that we will feel. It is a piece of metal that others will notice as we extend a hand of greeting or a hand of assistance.

Unlike a necklace or earrings, a ring is perfectly fitted to the shape of your finger in just the right size. It is there for you to enjoy, whereas a necklace is seen by others. So a ring is a very personal and special piece of jewelry.

When I am making a ring for a client, a big chunk of my heart goes into it. A bunch of positive thoughts and energy and prayers go into the making of each piece. It is my privilege to be a part of such a special memory in your life. Will you let me create something unique for you?

How long does it take to get your custom wedding ring from tinahdee? Or maybe you just wanted to order a casual ring for your loved one or for yourself? Each December I commit to getting out everything I can up until the cutoff date for Christmas shipping, which are as follows for the United States:

First Class USPS: 12/20

Priority Mail USPS: 12/21

Express Mail USPS: 12/23

So go ahead and order with confidence - as long as you order before the cutoff dates shown above, I will ship your order out in time for Christmas arrival. But don't stop there!  Did you get a cash gift for Christmas? Come and spend it with me, and finally get that cool ring you've been pining for.

You may be interested to know that you can order your unique ring on Black Friday this year and use the coupon code NOV16 to receive a 16% discount. This discount is good on any item in the shop and calculates based on your total order, even solid gold items.

 One of the trickier aspects of purchasing your custom made wedding rings, promise rings, engagement rings, or everyday wear rings, is finding the correct size.
