"I think we were both waiting for the curtain to be pulled back to reveal that we wouldn't actually be doing most of the ring making ourselves -- but that never happened. By the end of it all, it felt like a hard day's work. We sawed, hammered, soldered, filed, hammered some more, filed a lot more, and scrubbed eachother's rings to perfection. Stephanie was and infinitely patient teacher, and limited her interventions to the few instances when we really needed her.
We definitely came away from this experience with a newfound respect for jewelers and metalworkers alike. Most importantly, though, we came away with a set of beautiful bands that we made for each other. That's something no retail jeweler could ever compete with."
