We're Chad and Rachael from the Sunny Coast! A young couple who’s just taken on parenthood this past February and are loving every bit of it.
I, Chad, worked as a tree surgeon in the UK and although I have always had a love for trees, there was something I found extremely intriguing about bentwood rings. I came across a youtube video and thought to myself 'I can do that!'. The idea of wooden rings as opposed to the usual metal ring seemed so appealing to me. Not only are these beauties sustainable but they're unique and their rustic look is not something you see very often.
After a couple of years making rings by hand for friends and family, I slowly honed my skills producing better results with each new ring. It wasn't until I moved back to Australia that I decided I wanted to turn this into a business. I began sourcing beautiful local hardwood veneers and searching for different inlay materials such as coral, seashells and stones. I not only want to make beautiful, one of a kind pieces, but I hope to bring my travels and experiences to life and find materials along the way that represent where your beautiful ring was made and where the materials came from.
Every ring will have a story and I hope you love your piece as much as i enjoyed making it.
