With winter well underway, many of us are now planning for the upcoming Holiday season. What you may not know is that December is the most popular month of the year for engagements! According to The Knot, 16% of engagements happen in December. You’d think that Valentine’s Day would top the list, but it turns out that the holiday season is the perfect time for many reasons.
One of the most common questions I get when I’m meeting with a newly-engaged couple (or soon to be bride or groom) is how their ring is made? While I do use other techniques, creating a lost wax carving is by far my favorite, especially for hand-carved engagement rings. Not only is it satisfying to watch a design take shape, it means that each ring I carve is totally unique and special.
