Non-Native Rings – samples

It’s easy to see that all you need is an imagination and an idea. I’ll help design a very custom piece with you.
Obviously there are un-limited themes and designs that can be applied on your item. Send us a sketch or generic picture of what you may have in mind. Let’s see what we can come up with.
(Just a reminder, I do not do another person’s design or concept). There are many great ring designs that you may see. I have had many requests to copy another’s design, but, there is a thin line between an all-out copy of the item and a variation of the theme.
For example: I didn’t see any other Mountain ring designs when we did our first in 2000 to 2003. Now if you google ‘ mountain rings ‘ you can see hundreds of variations. Some that look very familiar to our shape / style and some that are great variations on the them. I wish I had done them. It would be impossible for me to try to use the copy-write laws on every instance. So… I guess I just have to accept the flattery that I have been bestowed with. Imitation is the highest form of flattery …etc but I would rather get credit for what I have done.
Our Feather bracelet is another design that many people have used. I challenge anyone to show me one earlier than 1991 ,when ours was featured in a National Canadian magazine. … but, again… flattery I guess.
