Make Your Own Wedding Rings

 

Why not make your own wedding rings? I offer a one day workshop for couples to spend the day in the jewellery studio with me and make your rings from start to finish. I will be there to take you step by step through the process and I can guarantee your rings will look perfect by the end of the day, and you will be really impressed with your results. Even if you have never done any silversmithing before, you will be able to make perfectly finished rings.

I have been running "make your own wedding ring" workshops since 2005 and really enjoy spending the day with couples to make such important items of jewellery. 

I also offer make your own eternity ring workshops, and silver wedding anniversary ring making workshops.

Top tip!

  • My experience shows that simple wedding bands, made and finished perfectly are the most satisfying. If you would prefer something a little more complicated, it is possible, but please contact me to discuss your ideas to ensure they are possible in one day.
  • Take a look at the Student Gallery to see other couples making their rings.

Feedback!

"The pictures are amazing, thanks so much! We had a great time last weekend, it's one of the best things we've done. We can't wait to wear our rings. We'll send you a photo of them in action at the wedding! J.S

"Just wanted to email to say thank you so so much for Friday. Matt and I had the BEST time and the day exceeded all of our expectations - not to mention we were pretty impressed with our final results.
Once again thank you Sue for such an amazing experience and a day we will both remember forever!" S.B

"Thank you so much Sue for helping to make our weekend (and ultimately our wedding) so extra special. We LOVE our rings and we so enjoyed the experience of making them with your expert guidance. You are an excellent and patient teacher :-) " F.S

"Hi Sue, Just wanted to say again how lovely a day we had with you. We are still amazed at how you helped us create our beautiful wedding rings from those little pieces of dull metal. The day was so special and one we will never forget. We will certainly be recommending you to any of our friends who get engaged or married in the future. " Y.T

The ring looking it's worst! This is straight after soldering and before we clean it to remove the oxide and borax. 


We make the rings the perfect size for you, so we can try for size through out the day.

 


I hope most of my students agree, we have a really relaxed and enjoyable day!

Ring sizing

Sue makes rings to the size your select when ordering. If the ring does not fit, then she will re-size the ring free of charge (once only) providing:

  1. You (the customer) pay £9 to cover Royal Mail Special Delivery costs for returning the ring to you (can be paid by cheque or back transfer).
  2. You (the customer) ensure it's returned within 14 days of delivery.

Please contact Sue before returning a ring for a re-size; it is so useful to have a discussion to help gauge how much adjustment is needed.

Please note: rings must be returned via Royal Mail Special Delivery and opting for the appropriate insurance option to cover the cost of the item. Sue Lane is not responsible for the delivery costs of returning a ring for re-sizing or for lost or damaged rings whilst in transit. For more details, please read our Returns Policy.

Sue will happily resize, refinish or repolish the ring at any time after the 14 days have expired, but at a cost based on the time needed to fulfil the work which Sue can quote before you return the ring.

Not sure of your ring size?

If you are not sure of your ring size, please contact Sue. She can arrange your order and then post out a free ring sizer to you. You then simply call or email with the measurement.
