About the Workshop
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 the 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.
Workshop Cost Breakdown
The final cost of your rings will be the total of the Fabrication Workshop for Two, metal cost, and any extra elements should you want them.

Custom Stone Setting, Design, and Fabrication
Cost will vary upon design
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.
Metal Samples & Sourcing
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.
