Berny – May, 2017
We first met Daan and Emmy Berlin MakerFaire in October 2015, where I made a pair of engagement rings for my sweetie and I. We got married in November 2016, and immediately booked our flight to Amsterdam to make our gold rings together. They allowed us to stay in their lovely garden house for the week, picked us up from the train station, showed us where the good pub was, lent us their own bicycles for the week, and generally treated us like friends not customer. It made our honeymoon special, and we look forward to the day they can come visit us in Canada! Love you guys, thank-you for everything.

I have been taught things I wouldn’t have guessed, when I started making a ring, it has been a pleasure participating in this unique workshop, and I have made a happy love with the endresult

we spent the weekend in this cosy little gardenhouse, woke up for a nice breakfast and then made our own weddingrings in gold, the prettiest ever, and we had soo much fun, we will always remember and would love to come back to Amsterdam

My personal highlight was the ring smithing workshop Daan Uttien had set up in his booth though. I think I spent something like 5 hours there (3 on the first and 2 on the second day), smithing two rings (the first one being my first experience working with metal at all and taking 3h, the second one showing me that I really had learnt something the prior day and only taking around 1, maybe even less than that), talking to Daan, it was just pure awesomeness. And I not only got to take away that wonderful experience but also two self smithed rings plus got my engagement/partner ring repaired too (partially even by myself!) 🙂

Hey Emmy, a like from me for your sketches- they are brilliant. Thank you for coming down and running such a brilliant workshop. I still can’t get over how amazing my ring is – I’ve been showing it off to everyone. Hope we meet again in the future – maybe in Amsterdam! All the best, Aimee
