The first recorded history of wedding rings were worn by lovers from ancient Egypt. They are said to have exchanged rings made of braided reeds and hemp. These bands were placed in ceremony on the fourth finger of the left-hand as it was believed that there was a ‘vein of love’ that ran from this finger directly to your heart.
Wedding bands have withstood many metamorphosis since then, and now are made usually out of gold or silver, but still often worn on the left hand on the forth finger.
Inspired by the sentimental nature of wedding rings and their origins, I felt that the ability to work with your partner to forge your own wedding bands would be an incredibly meaningful experience and one I would be honoured to facilitate.
Born from this idea is La Vera. Simple organic wedding bands, handformed with love to cherish forever.
In our intimate workshops, I will guide you and your partner to make your own wedding bands. Classes run for 3-5hours. No experience or tools are required. A vegan friendly morning tea and cocktails are included (please advise us on booking of any allergies).
Please browse our La Vera Collection here to choose the rings you and your partner wish to make and select them from the drop down menu.
From there I will be in touch to discuss the scheduling of a workshop date, as this is an intimate workshop with only you and your partner in attendance, we will schedule a date that is convenient. If you have limited availability in the lead up to your wedding and require a specific date please don’t hesitate to reach out and I can confirm availability with you prior to booking. Workshops are held on Saturday’s and Sunday’s but we may be able to accomodate alternative requests depending on workload.
