Today I’m delighted to introduce one of our newest APW sponsors: Brent & Jess, makers of excellent and affordable wedding rings. These rings have the extra awesome twist of having your beloved’s fingerprint inside the ring to carry with you always. Amazing, right? But that’s not all…
I first heard about Brent & Jess (otherwise known as Fabuluster on Etsy) through an APW reader. She sent me the kind of gushing, you-must-get-this-business-as-a-sponsor email that I almost never get. She said, “Brent & Jess Williams are amazing. And by amazing I mean on-budget-ahead-of-schedule-totally-professional-out-of-this-world-quality-AND-effin-amazing. They list a sixty day production lead time when you place your order, and I just received rings in thirty-five days, almost a month ahead of schedule. And did I mention the rings are perfect? Outstanding.” So, obviously, I was intrigued. The mix of a beautiful and unique product, master craftsman, a family owned business, and excellent customer service was just too Team Practical perfect for me to pass up.
I asked Jess to tell me a little more about their artistic process and how they create their rings. She obliged and sent pictures of the process, which I adore. She said:
We love doing rings for weddings because it is celebratory. It is a positive and happy occasion. We want to make custom rings affordable for most people. We offer the sterling silver and bronze because we want everyone to be able to afford having a super special ring. The ring is something you wear everyday and a constant reminder of your commitment. Our truly unique process is a very sculptural technique which produces a one of a kind ring that is your very own unique fingers’ texture. Your loved one literally wrapped around your finger.
Our patented process allows us to capture your real fingerprint texture. We do not engrave or etch the prints. They are handmade by us, one at a time. We take extreme pride in our craft and experience, and we stand behind our products. Brent is a master jeweler, with nearly sixteen years as a craftsman. Brent & Jessica both hold BFAs from Maine College of Art in Jewelry and Metalsmithing.
And if that’s not enough, Brent & Jess also do custom work. So if you’re looking for something a little different, made by craftsmen, get in touch. They said, “We can do anything from fun and funky to sentimental and heirloom. We buy our new raw materials from American manufacturers who boast responsibility and use half recycled material. It’s all handmade right here in the beautiful state of Maine.”
So go browse and enjoy. It’s such a treat to bring you committed, talented artists to make something you’ll carry with you for the rest of your life.
