Last week, I rose early, travelled far, made a ring for my beloved, dashed home, prepared a meal, and then proposed. Busy day. We’re getting married on the 11th of August in a town in northern Germany near Dortmund.
If you know and like me or her, you’re invited to the wedding, which I hope will be quite informal but enormous fun. You should be receiving invitations soon if I’ve got your contact details (once we’ve made them all), otherwise feel free to contact me and mention that I haven’t sent you an invite yet.
She loves lizards which is why I made the ring in the shape of a lizard. Here’s me burnishing it.
and the result, after treating it:
In case the lizard didn’t turn out well, I also made a back up ring, and earrings (she likes earrings, so they were a safe choice) at the same time.

get you and your metalworkin’ ways, you’re a modern day renaissance man – if that isnt a contradiction in terms. What with your soldierin’, paintin’, philosophisin’, and buildin stuff out of dominos…
congratulations, so pleased for both of you. Hope she knows what she’s leting herself in for.
Wow, pretty awesome to be able to make the ring yourself.
Congratulations. The ring is a work of art. May health, happiness, laughter and passion be your always!!, much love, Rosemary xxxx
Aw, that is so sweet! How did you make them and what king of material is it? Looking forward to the wedding. Ray.
It’s fine silver (purer than sterling).
