Mountain Range Wedding Bands

Laura Guptill Jewelry can create custom made Wedding Bands for you, featuring the Presidential Mountain Range or the mountain range of your choice. These can be done in your choice of 14K or 18K Yellow Gold, White Gold or Rose Gold, all one color, or a two-tone. Also available in Sterling Silver.
These are completely hand fabricated, beginning with an outline sketch of your favorite mountains. They can include a bezel set stone if you desire, or just the band.
Please contact me for an appointment to discuss the rings you will enjoy wearing and looking at every day! 
Of all the things you will pay for for your wedding, these are the rings that you will have long after the ceremony. Create something special and meaningful. 

This part of what I do, that brings me so much joy and satisfaction, is getting to know my clients, and their beautiful stories. Putting thought into the creation of your bands is the story you get to tell your grandchildren someday. I love being able to bring those dreams to light. 

Thank you for visiting my blog, and hopefully setting up a time with me to discuss your rings.

More photos can be found on the Custom Wedding Band page.

Smiles,
Laura

What makes my job special? This... right here.

This is a testimonial, from one of my former students. She has taken her desire to make jewelry seriously, and put in the time and effort to advance her craft.
What I love about teaching is the enthusiasm, and the absolute excitement and pride that accompanies   and infuses my students when they follow their heart.

Thank you, Haley.

"I never really knew what I wanted to become after high school, what direction I thought would be right for me. 
I have always had a love of creating. I found a greater love for working with metal after making a ring in my high school shop class. I talked about it non stop to my mother about how much I enjoyed it and She decided to surprise me with a set of classes through Laura.
Laura Guptill is so much more than her title in our valley as a talented silversmith. 
She is a wonderfully unique and creative woman. Taking those classes was one of the best experiences I could have dreamed of. I found my passion and after that first class with her, I knew that being a silversmith was the path for me. Laura is an impeccable teacher, I was nervous because I imagined meeting someone who would just brush over the concept of what they do, but Laura went above and beyond. Not only did she explain everything in amazing detail, she made sure I knew how to do it properly and why I needed to take those steps to get a beautiful piece of finished work. Her kind and bubbly nature made it very easy to feel at home and relaxed with her. If you decide you want to take a class to learn about making jewelry,  or have a custom piece made, She should be the woman you visit. You will not be disappointed, I promise. 
I feel through the entire process I was able to embrace where I was at in my journey with the help of her encouragement, advice and her positive energy. That was the key, you walk through the door and are surrounded by positivity and someone with a love of teaching. Someone who truly loves her job and wants to share that with others. If I get stuck on a project, I know I can contact Laura and ask for her option on how to go about solving the issue I’m having. I have on a few occasions, she answered in depth and was more than happy to help me figure out the issue and problem solve with me. Laura gives her all and you can see it in her creations, the love and time she puts into every piece. She is definitely someone I look up to and hope to be as talented as she is some day.
Laura is someone I feel blessed to have met and someone I am proud to consider a friend. The experience  was truly something special and one of kind. "
