Custom Made Damascus Steel Earrings

Damascus Earrings and Sgian Dubh
We were commissioned by her husband Josh to create this pair of custom Damascus earrings as a special gift to his wife Lyzz for their 10th wedding anniversary (hence the ‘X’ engraving). The Damascus steel matches the design of a Sgian Dubh that we made for Lyzz several years ago as a commission from her brother.
These earrings were cut from a steel plate of two contrasting alloys of Stainless Steel, layered and forge-welded together which gives the beautiful organic patterning to the steel.

Unique Bear and Stag Wedding Rings

Bear-and-Stag-Rings
We created these unique wedding rings for Jamie and Jenn after discussing various ideas and using the couple’s own drawings inspired by ancient designs.
Jamie’s ring was crafted from a solid piece of Aerospace grade Titanium bar, featuring a Bear and Jenn’s ring is in Rose Gold and has a leaping Stag. Both rings also incorporate a spiral design flowing around the circumference of the rings.
The couple kindly emailed the following; “We’re really pleased with our rings. Rab and Tanya’s gentle coaxing helped us clarify a fairly broad design brief. The end result is everything we hoped for, two unique but thematically linked rings reflecting the union of their recipients. Thank you.”

Unique Engagement Ring with Runes and Tourmaline and a Special Sgian Dubh

Lisa's_Ring
When Chris was planning a surprise proposal to Lisa on their vacation from the US to Scotland he contacted us and asked if we could use his sketches to craft a unique engagement ring. His design featured Tourmaline which is Lisa’s birth stone along with specific runes and a double heart shaped clover.
“WOW!!! That’s everything I would have hoped for. I’m Speechless. Thank you! …And yes, the day went perfectly, and even with a double rainbow appearing shortly after she said yes at the fairy pools on Skye.” Chris

By coincidence Lisa had also commissioned us to craft a surprise gift for Chris; a special Sgian Dubh with a Bog Oak handle, spiral engraved brass ferrule and a Damascus blade with a personal message diamond-engraved in Gaelic. It was only when the couple arrived together to collect both their commissions that we realised the connection and we had to keep their respective surprises !

Old Wrought Iron Celtic Ring Made in Aerospace Grade Titanium

Wrought Iron Celtic Ring Made in Aerospace Grade Titanium
We were commissioned to craft this very unusual ring for Skyler who asked that we use aerospace grade titanium but with the special request to give it an old wrought iron look and feel, with a Celtic knotwork design. This is the first time that we have made a ring quite like this and after a process of research and development to get this finish we are very happy with how it turned out. Using titanium meant that this ring is far lighter and more durable than if we had used wrought iron.
Skyler kindly emailed us when her ring arrived;
“It has a perfect fit and is astoundingly beautiful. Aside from the special sentiments it personally holds, I receive multiple compliments daily. Thank you so much for such a gorgeous piece of art.”

(We filmed some video footage of this ring being made and will share that when we’ve edited it down to a reasonable size.)

Bespoke White Gold Wedding Rings with Celtic Hares and The Sun & The Moon

CJ262
We had the pleasure in creating these special wedding rings for Simon and Shona who kindly emailed us the following;
“I wanted our weddings to be special, to reflect something about ourselves and what makes us different. I really had little idea of what that actually meant until I stumbled across your wedding ring blog showing some of the wonderful rings you had already made. I knew then that it was what we spent all those months searching for. We wanted to include hares and the moon and the symbolism behind them. You took those rough ideas and created something that moved it to another level, incorporating the tree of life and putting a Celtic twist onto the hares. Working with you was an incredible journey which culminated in the most perfect of days when we came to collect the rings. We have since married and know that they will bring us joy forever. Thank you ever so much.”
