Fabrication Workshop

How to make your wedding bands.jpg

I began this business to help ensure that couples had strong, lasting wedding bands that exude their individual character. By taking this class, you are learning a new skill, and making a physical investment that is enduring and invaluable in sentiment.   

The final cost of your rings will be the combination of workshop fee, metal cost, and any extra elements. These additional elements may include stone setting, engraving, or other custom work to finish your rings. For a pair of fabricated 14K gold bands, most couples spend between $965 - $1,600.   

Here is the complete cost breakdown of the Fabrication Workshop:

**I love a challenge. If you would like a band that goes beyond the conventional style I will problem solve, design, create, fuse and deliver a solution through the sixteen plus years of my metalsmithing background and tool box. Due to the individual nature of each ring, the amount of time and skill will vary depending on your desired design.

A word about sourcing. All of my metal is 100% recycled, from a provider that has been an eco conscious refinery for over one hundred years, and is the first refinery to regularly carry Fairmined precious metal. I am committed to supporting Portland's local artisans. That is why all precious metal casting and stone setting is done by the best professionals within Portland, Oregon proper.
