This is how wedding rings should be made: together. It’s like making love. Make this moment in your lives special with wedding rings you make side by side with your love. This fun and special day for you will be guided with love. Nested Yellow Jewelry: forging stronger bonds between lovers. For the past 10 years, I have had the honor of creating custom engagement and wedding rings for romantic couples madly in love. What I have discovered is that you love being part of this creative process and discovering what design says “Yes!” to you. After all, you’ll be wearing this ring every day and your sweetheart will glance at your hand with so much adoration and love. Designing and making your wedding bands together is centered on creating a meaningful and sentimental experience. I will guide you through the process of making your wedding rings from designing to completion. You will start with flat or half-round metal stock that you will form, solder, and shape into your wedding bands. Fabrication is a process where you will work directly in the metal of your choice. You will use a jewelers' torch, pliers, handsaw, and motorized hand tool to refine your wedding rings. Your band will be professionally smoothed and polished for the final touch. Workshop Fee + Cost of Gold = Total Price for Your Bands A current list of costs for 14K, 18K gold, and Silver bands will be provided.
Fine jewelry designer and maker Anna Vasquez creates insightful pieces for romantic clients. She has made custom engagement and wedding rings in her Portland, Oregon studio for over 10 years. She has hosted private lessons and workshops for all ages. Her story begins in Honduras, where as a young girl she formed a deep listening relationship with the natural world. As a successful career in architecture transformed into a passion for jewelry design, she found herself in the Pacific Northwest, where moss drips from Douglas Firs and volcanoes meditate in solemn white cloaks. Desiring to share firsthand the joys of designing, collaborating, and making with her clients, she opens her Lovejoy Street studio with warmth and kindness.
