What previous couples have said:
"My fiancée and I spend a lovely day with Karin. She took us through each exciting step from a strip of gold to a unique ring that we can treasure forever. It was a truly special day and I would recommend Karin's wedding ring workshop to anyone who is looking for something unique. We finished it off with a very relaxing afternoon tea at the Tudor Farm House in Clearwell. Thanks Karin!" Melissa F.
“Karin was recommended me to a friend. I already had a clear idea of what style of wedding ring I wanted and Karin helped transform that idea into reality, creating a wedding ring that both complemented the design of my engagement ring and sat comfortably next to it. I couldn’t decide what size I wanted the ring to be and Karin was very amenable to making alterations as required, she even stopped by my office one time to check the fit. Oh and her workshop is in a picturesque wooded spot just outside Coleford so you feel as if you’re escaping from all of the wedding planning dramas when you visit. I would certainly recommend Karin to anyone wanting a locally-
"Your workshop was a fantastic personal way to make our wedding rings with a lasting memory. It was great to be shown the techniques of making a ring and solidify the bond that me and Danny were about to make by soldering the symbolic gift of our commitment. We really appreciated being able to use recycled gold from a fairly traded source as this was very much in line with how we like to interact with the world." Natalie B.
