Magic metal moment

Etsy metal member Danielle Miller recently completed a very
special request: The perfect ring for the most unique proposal.
Artists Elaine and Waylon met at an iron pour in Brevard, NC
in 2006. For Elaine, a ceramic artist, and Waylon, a sculptor,
distance was no obstacle to love as they maintained a long
distance relationship across North and South Carolina
through 2008. They eventually joined forces in Philadelphia
where Elaine completed her MFA. With Elaine’s Master’s
under her belt, it was Waylon’s turn to pursue graduate
work and the couple was on their way to Kentucky...
and when the time came Danielle got the call for a standout
engagement ring featuring a gorgeous Tsavorite garnet in
sterling and 18kt gold with diamond accents.

Waylon proposed in dramatic fashion at an iron pour
in Kentucky, much like the one they met at 4 years earlier.
They have been so kind to share with us at EtsyMetal,
and now with you, the magic of their special moment...



the ring for a lifetime...


and some more fine work from Danielle Miller Jewelry...

Erga:  on creating the Balance Band  

This stylish, modern design is hand fabricated out of 
sterling silver and a recycled solid 14kt yellow gold sphere. 
Conceived as a wedding ring, and beautiful everyday for anyone.”
Erga



The symbolism of the gold sphere is open to interpretation. 
As suggested by the ring's name, to me, this ring is 
about balance. The balance of self, the balance of life, 
the balance of the world, and, of course, the balance 
of marriage. The sphere represents the love, the relationship, 
the union. It is up to both parties to see that it is evenly 
supported, and that the balance is maintained. 
There is something very comforting and reassuring 
about the shape of a sphere, and I feel that 
this ring expresses that well.

Chocolates and Champagne   

Sweet treats take on a new meaning as interpreted here by 
EtsyMetal artists.  Champagne and chocolate (diamonds... that is!) 
never seemed so tempting as they do here in these beautifully 
hand made settings.  Don't mind if I do.

Graphic elements  

Be it a texture, geometric pattern, or a love note, 
bands are a reflection of your once in a lifetime partership. 
Nothing reflects your personal style or sentiment like a 
uniquely crafted artisan wedding or comittment band.

“Making wedding bands for couples is very satisfying. 
I work hard to make them as perfect for them as I can, 
knowing they will be wearing them everyday as a 
symbol of their love for one another. It gives my work 
purpose and meaning, and I love that!”
                                                           - Kathleen   



from Kathleen’s feedback:

Our rings are beautiful. We will cherish them. 
Great, friendly customer service and a fast turnaround. 
The craftsmanship is marvelous. These rings are better than 
anything we tried on in the jewelry stores.

love, love, love my ring! thanks so much!

Our rings our BEAUTIFUL...
we can't wait to use them in our 
wedding ceremony and for years to come!

Studiometalsmith was extremely pleasant 
to work with. The ring is beautiful and arrived
