We attended the Ring In A Day with Rachel Elizabeth Wood to make our own wedding bands.
My partner and I have no experience of design or making and Rachel made us feel so comfortable. She is a very talented professional jeweller in her own right and helped us to design what we really wanted.
We went for the upgrade option and paid the extra metal costs to have them cast in white gold. On the day she showed me how I could adapt the contour of the wedding band to my engagement ring so it would sit nicely on my hand, something I hadn't even thought of.
The day was excellent value for money and we couldn't of asked for any more. We now have something to keep for a life time.
A must do!!
Thank you Rachel & Team
Rachel Elizabeth Wood:
I am so glad you enjoyed the day. It was so rewarding to see you both make something so unique.
I had the most amazing day with Rachel at the stunning lake house at Wyresdale Park.
I was blown away with the professional standard and level of hospitality we received. The afternoon tea was lovely and we had it served to us over looking the lake. I felt at home from the very beginning. Rachel loves her job and she was a fantastic tutor. She is funny and very friendly so the atmosphere was great..
I was a little nervous at the beginning of the day as I hadn't done jewellery making before and had booked to attend the day on my own (Which as it had turned out a few of us had). The class was mixed abilities and Rachel adapted the lesson to each persons level. I felt very supported by Rachel and made the most amazing item of jewellery that I will treasure forever.
Highly recommended...will be going back!

Liz- Your ring was stunning! We look forward to seeing you again for another great day.
