What you'll do
This is a private event just for you and your beloved. You can each make a ring or just one of you. First is the design phase where you will decide on the material you want, stainless steel, gold, or palladium sterling silver (additional material fee for precious metals), you will also choose the width, texture and finish of your ring. Next is the making. Sterling or gold bands start by pouring a molten ingot. You will forge stainless bands in the blacksmiths shop. Each following step we will demonstrate the process, then you will follow and so on. Each step is under our watchful tutelage making sure that the end product is one that you will proudly wear knowing that you made it! No experience is necessary we will explain and demonstrate each step in detail. Guests will use a variety of tools including hammers, torches, forges, grinders, and polishers. This experience is one on one, we are there assisting and guiding when ever you need us, and encouraging you to do it all. This is a meaningful way to start the next phase of your journey together.
As professional smiths we exhibit our work coast to coast. I made my first ring with my father at 6 years old. Since then I studied metalsmithing at university, worked for prominent jewelers, and have shown and sold my work at galleries for 20+ years. Harry was a farrier blacksmith for 20+ years and has now retired as a farrier to be a full time artist blacksmith, we collaborate in our artistic venture, Sterling and Steel, to make housewares and jewelry. We are excited to share our knowledge, to help you make your ring "more", make it an experience.
We will supply, safety glasses, and hearing protection. All the tools needed, and materials.
