“WOW! What an experience!
I attended an evening of creative bliss; my Ring Fling at Jewel Beetle and I couldn’t be more wrapped with the whole adventure! Smooth communication and clear direction were a joy! The, Ring Fling evenings are something I would pay any dime for! To design your own ring then, have it cast in silver *with a possible option of gold*!! Why wouldn’t you take up the chance!! Definitely go in with an idea, saves a lot of pondering time that can be well spent on technique of the final product. I had my idea already and it still took a good 2-3hrs. Simple is better! I went with geometrical shapes and I love it!! Hope to attend again in future – if I can!! Ha-ha! Thank you, ladies!! A treasure for a lifetime, through generations!!

MAKE YOUR OWN WEDDING RINGS
Your wedding rings are a symbol of your love, why not make it extra special and create your own?
Our ‘Couples Create” experience is a practical jewellery workshop to hand-craft your own wedding rings. No experience or creative skills are required as you’ll be guided every step of the way through the jewellery making process with your own skilled and friendly jeweller for the day.
“We live in the Wairarapa and came to Nelson for the weekend to make our own wedding bands. Fun from the very start from making our own designs, melting the materials and slowly seeing the rings take shape, from moulding to cutting, filing and lastly polishing the rings will be absolutely unique and just that much more precious, considering you have made them yourselves. And you get awesome memories to go along with the rings.
On top of that, Yvon was a great host, patient with our, I am sure in her eyes, slow speed, explain all the steps along the way and putting on a nice lunch as well from the bakery next door.We have told all our friends about this experience and would not hesitate to recommend this to anyone, as it is simply an unforgettable day”
