wedding stories

Genevieve and Ben

"For years we have admired Jen Nielsen’s work at the Common Ground Fair in Unity, Maine. The natural beauty of the media in which she works mingled with her creative talent was so appealing to us. We wanted nothing more than to bring that unique aspect to our wedding rings. Making this decision made the rings an intensely treasured piece of our wedding. Jen’s enthusiasm made it all the more exciting for us. She was very personable, listened intently to our interests, and had great recommendations. When my husband proposed to me and I opened the simple, elegant box to view the piece, it took my breath away. The set she prepared for us was the exact image of what I had in my mind. Placing the ring on my finger was a poignant moment, like no other! I love every moment my eyes catch on either my ring or my husband’s."

"After reading about Jennifer in Down East Magazine, I knew right where to go for a unique engagement ring using Maine beachstones collected by my girlfriend and me. I wanted something sentimental to the both of us, not just a store-bought diamond ring. Working with Jennifer was very organic. She made the process so easy and in the end we incorporated a family diamond into the design after all. We love telling the story and having a piece that is so unique, full of character, and means so much to the both of us. I couldn’t be more happy working with Jennifer and the process of having her make a one-of-a-kind beach stone engagement ring."
