Summer Days Full of Light

“This is the world’s reenactment of today, and of this moment, and of continuing on-with its satellite imaging of scattering birds obscuring our faces—and this is the world’s reenactment of its percentages: of the constant shifting of the satellites and the constant scattering of the birds and the likelihood that we will be seen; and this is the reenactment of someone choosing your face” from “Equation for Cresting” by Christopher Bolin, via Verse Daily

These summer weeks our studio fills with light and noise.

These summer weeks out studio fills with light and joy.

Even the peregrine falcons have been hooting and squeaking and swooping, like, they know. (Or perhaps, with Field Museum visitors, and three little newly-hatched babes, they’ve got their own sweet hubbub!)

So many wonderful people are getting married at the end of June! And we’re making wood rings for everyone, or, it certainly seems that way.

Lisa and Denise came in to pick up their rings earlier this week, for a private commitment ceremony. They were freshly back from Kenya, and “accidentally” wearing coordinated shirts featuring elephants from their travels. 

It was so wonderful to spend time with these two as they tried on their rings–rosewood, moissanite, and mother of pearl–and made sure just they were just right. 

Allison consults with Lisa and Denise about the right fit.

Lisa and Denise try the rings on for size for the first time!

Happy clients at Simply Wood Rings.

Denise takes a closer look.

The happy couple!

The happy couple!

We couldn’t be happier for Lisa and Denise, and wish them a lifetime together of joy and adventure.

If you need us, we’ll be sanding and wrapping, packing and shipping, sighing and stretching, and ready for more!
