About two months ago a friend of mine asked if i would make her and her boyfriend's wedding rings. . . I was totally psyched, and scared, by the prospect of making something so meaningful for two people. . .
They wanted simple gold bands with a hammered and brushed finish. . . I've never taken a jewelry class but i'm lucky enough to have a friend with a pimped out jewelry studio who gave me access to everything he had, and some pointers along the way. . . It's pretty exciting to think that these rings will be worn by two people as a symbol of their commitment. . . I've never been one to get all sentimental about marriage or weddings, but it's pretty cool when you think about it.
