This simple silver wedding band was the first mens wedding band I made that is still in my shop today. I had just made the decision to open an Etsy shop and was so excited to have a couple listings up. I had a few friends buy my rings but I distinctly remember the day I got an order from New York on March 15, 2021. “Do I know anybody from New York?” It was my first real customer and they bought this very ring, my “Forged Rustic Sterling Silver Wedding Band”.

Sterling Silver is a timeless material used in wedding bands since the 12th century. It is composed of 92.5% silver and 7.5% copper for durability. This ring in particular is made entirely from recycled sterling silver. I source sterling silver items (typically forks and spoons) locally. I then melt the silver down and cast it into the ring shape. From there it’s a matter of removing and shaping the material until I get it just right (this is where most of the work takes place).

Like the rest of the rings in my shop, I don’t like to give it a high-shine or ultra-smooth finish. There are enough rings out there like that, and frankly that’s just not my style. I like to give it an organic, rustic, faceted, handmade look, enough to give it character, but still have that simple timelessness.



If you are interested in a ring, don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions you may have. It’s just me here. (:
