We’re getting married!

A good reason to have a quiet blog

You may have noticed that the blog has been a little quiet lately, apologies for that. It’s been a busy few months with work and family, as well as planning a wedding!

In keeping with our ethos of “it’s better to DIY” we took the opportunity to head up to Yorkshire to my grandparents to make our own wedding bands!

We used a rod of Timascus, or Titianium Damascus, which is made up of multiple grades of titanium forge welded together and then twisted. When heat or an electrical current is passed through the metal the surface oxidises at different rates giving a dramatic shift in colour, this causes stripes to form.

More news to come over the coming year!
