Make Your Own Wedding Rings and Engagement Ring

The DIY Ring Workshop

You want more than just a ring.

You want a ring that you've made with your very own hands.

But forging a ring is not easy, and the equipment is expensive. Learning how to set stones can take years. And mistakes in gold are even more expensive.

Where can you find an outgoing, personable jeweler who loves to teach?

Look no further.  At DIY Ring Workshops, you'll be trained by the best. You will, completely hands-on, make your own wedding or engagement ring from start to finish.

Lisa Krikawa has been handmaking rings since her first hilarious failed attempt in 1988.  She founded, which has specialized in custom wedding and engagement rings since 1998. Discovering her love for teaching first started with her employees, and she now teaches couples and individuals how to make their own rings.

Sign up for a private or semi-private class and take an exciting trip to the Sonoran Desert! Tucson, Arizona, is a wonderful destination to make your ring or rings.

And your ring will forever remind you of your budding love.
