These wooden wedding rings were made from a Mountain Ash tree limb, which was sent to us by a very nice Montana couple.
Contrast was achieved by using the Ash heartwood for the base and the lighter sapwood for the lining and inlay.
We received the following from the customer:
”It’s a mountain ash tree that has been in his yard his entire life and is incredibly large and healthy—it has always been a significant tree to us and the family. It’s so meaningful for us to have a connection to the actual place that we love the most through the rings that represent our love for one another. The rings will mean a lot to us, always, not only because of the significance of the wood itself, but also because of the care given in making them.”
