Well finally got back to work having been away a few weeks and now ready to make some more rings.
Started on one wedding ring today with many more orders to complete.
Also seem to have sold out of gold and silver pendants so I had better get back to making them. The biggest change this year is I will be moving workshops next month. So I will keep you informed of the move. Better get back to work now and do not forget you can see my work on Etsy link found here – https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/CumbrianDesigns
Handmade rustic finish flat 6mm wedding ring with a grey coloured effect like the slate in the Lake District, Cumbria.
It is made from sterling silver with the rustic finish being added to the outside and sides with the inside a brushed finish. An affordable wedding band for someone who wants something a bit different.
The ring is available in 2mm, 3mm, 4mm, 5mm, 6mm and 8mm widths to make a matching set for you and your partner.
I make this ring to order and I usually require about three weeks for producing it.
For any questions regarding the rings, making times or have a special request just get in touch.
So into another month and this is my new design. Honister Pass is made from a heavy silver band and set with four rose gold sections.
The Honister Pass in the Lake District is driven over by a narrow track which is high and treacherous in the winter. At the top, however is a wonderfull view and an interesting mine to visit.
The design is inspired by a rusting cog I saw from some old mining equipment. It makes a good rustic design for a man.
The ring seen here is a 6mm but I can make this from 4mm wide up to 8mm wide.
The rose gold can also be changed for silver, or yellow gold.
The black gave the best background for these images and you can also see a video of the band on my YouTube channel.
Hope this gives you ideas for your wedding.
This is a new design I made a few months back and is now showing to be quite popular for the men.
The Lakeland Footpath name comes from a rocky path I was reminded of when I was walking around Lake Ullswater in the Lake District.
It is made in silver and could also be done in gold. The ring comes in 5mm to 8mm widths and is a good chunky court band.
I hand stamp the pattern and the black patination sits well in the hollows with little wear.
As always, I have done a range of photos and I am now experimenting with video so you should be able to see a movie of this ring on the website soon.
The silver when worn will not tarnish but should the ring be left off the hand for a few months then a quick rub of a cloth should bring the colour back.
Now I am going for some lunch then going to have a go with filming. See you later Richard.
So, I have been working on this design for quite a time. I was looking to create a ring that will mix with several metal combinations to give a rustic wedding band.
The ring seen here is in silver and gold but it will work fine with a yellow gold or rose gold background and a silver or platinum top line.
The design will be fine from 4mm wide to the 8mm seen here. It took a number of attempts to get the sort of effect I was after but I am finally happy with this one.
The name comes from the Fell I used to see from my bedroom window when I was a child. I have climbed it a few times and when the weather is good you get a good view from the top over the Lake district.
Before you start the climb, you have to cross a stream which is the line running through the middle of the wedding band.
Anyway enough reminiscing. I hope you like this design and if you want to order one or have it in another metal just contact me through my website at cumbrian.com.
And here are the photos –
I love the warmth or red gold and with diamonds it adds an extra shine. Here is a Gretna Green Anvil wedding ring made in 18ct rose gold with diamonds set on either side.
I make these wedding bands in a heavy court style which have a good depth so the diamonds do not show through the back.
The ring seen here is 6mm and but I can make this range from 4mm to 8mm with diamonds. The design works well as a matching set and is also available in yellow, white gold and platinum.

Hope you like the photos , Richard.
Just made this one for April. I am hoping to have another 10 made soon but cant get to them for brides wanting bands LOL. shouldn’t complain with being so busy.
Diamond is 1.46ct natural raw black and is a nice kite shape. Made this in rose gold as it seems to set well against the black colour. Rustic texture to finish the band off. Hope you like the pics.
If you want you can see it here with some other rings
Pebble Beach design with textured outside and matt brushed inside finish.
This band is available in yellow and white gold, platinum and silver. I make this from 2mm to 8mm widths
This wedding band is made in my own workshop and is not available from a high street jeweller.
A design for an individual or couple looking for something unique. Inspired from the pebble beach at St Bees head in Cumbria.
Water Reeds wedding band with an oxidised textured and matt finish.
I made this band from a 8mm wide silver flat band. The idea came from seeing the water reeds you can see on Lake Windermere in Cumbria.
Each one is made with a unique pattern handstruck on every ring so no one will look the same.
The wedding ring is made to order and you can order it from any of my shops. I was very pleased with the photos of the band which gives a very realistic view of what the ring looks like.
Sunrise View wedding band with a rustic finish and matt brushed inside. Made from 22ct gold and silver.
This ring is 8mm wide but also comes in other widths from 4mm to 6mm.
I was making this at the start of the day, and it remined me of the sun as it rose over the Lake District peaks. I can see them through my window and it seemed an appropriate name for the wedding band.
So here are the photos of the new wedding band.
