Making our wedding bands

5 August 2009 by Dan

Jessica and I wanted to have bands that were unique–so what better way than to make them ourselves? With the help of Todd at Tap Studios in Cleveland, we crafted some really nice wedding rings.
Jessica’s is a palladium band with a beautiful, hand-crafted nest on top of it. The nest is made out of gold and it has two diamonds set in it. Mine is a very sturdy, attractive palladium band with an asymmetrical darkened line going around it.
You can see the process of making them at our photo album on Webshots.
