      I see custom jewelry making in your future. Enjoy the ride.

    2. ringdingading

      My husband and I made each others wedding rings. We found a little goldsmith who would instruct us and provide us with tools. It was sooo much fun :)

    3. Fergus Dunlop

      the chronicles of alec changing from a blacksmith to a jeweler.

    4. Bailey Louque

      the music in your videos are always amazing

    5. KimCanDo

      ring or BAND?

    6. chewtoy99

      Thought you are a blacksmith?

    7. Peanut butter ravioli

      Congrats Alec!

    8. Mr Nohbdy

      A hammered finish carries a little more meaning when you or your significant other is the one who hammered it.

    9. Viola Helmgaard

      8:39 I hope all that gold dust is being used again or is it just going on the ground and in the vacuum!???

    10. Duy Tùng Phạm

      I'm glad that Will said "yes"

    11. Andrew Howett

      Just a suggestion you and your girl should do a q and a where either alec or both of you answer some questions while she out of the view so we get know you guys a little more

    12. 14goldmedals

      Gold smithing was once a dark art wrapped in secrecy. US-new has shown us that any dude willing to file etc can make a living even while suffering from a seriously low attention span.

    13. Caleb D

      Beautiful work! Also, really nice video.

    14. Clara Mullen

      Beautiful set of rings Alec. Best of wishes

    16. jonmy357

      I'm ashamed at the lack of effort in my proposal to my wife, damn you alec!

    17. Operator's Anonymous

      Can't beat having made your own wedding rings.. good bit of sentiment and intimacy involved there...

    18. Blake Hensler

      Look at Alec all giddy with excitement! Congrats on your arrow to the knee and I love your videos.

    19. keno1964

      Saw the engagement vid when it came out, and first thing I said was "NOW we know why he moved to Montana!" Congrats dude!

    20. Pot ato

      being dead serious here, I just got engaged with my fiance too

    21. Heidi Baltom

      I really like the hammered finish its unique. Many wedding rings are totally smooth band but these are slightly different

    22. Dihler

      Will said yes how cute :D JK thats awesome. Happy for you two!

    23. Marcus Vespasian

      Centrifugal caster is what we used when learning to make gold crowns for my patience as a dental student. From preparation impressions, wax up, investment, casting,finishing and

    24. Matthew Hall

      😍 so cute loved this so much I wish you and your woman all the best for your Marriage

    25. Bean Milk

      It would be awkward if she said no 😂

    26. super8ben

      Something you forgot to mention about the kiln burnout is the third and most important purpose for it. That is that it bakes the investment to force out any moisture still inside. Otherwise the water, even at a tiny scale, will turn to steam when you pour and will fire molten metal back at you or even explode.

    27. Jackson J

      Step 1. Go to YT Search Step 2. Search this keyword: Mimi Kid Art Step 3. Enjoy! Making Wedding Bands! I met those laughing, fierce hazel eyes. Cassian’s smile softened. “Hello, Feyre.” My throat tightened to the point of pain, and I threw my arms around his neck, embracing him tightly. “I missed you, too,” Cassian murmured, squeezing me. When, in the street, I see a mother walking with her grown-up daughter, I can hardly bear to witness the mother’s pride, the softening of her face, her incredulous joy at being granted her daughter’s company; and the iron discipline she imposes on herself, to muffle and conceal this joy.

    28. Maarten van den berge

      Carefull my great grandfather pulled of his finger when his wedding ring got stuck

    29. Contai gious

      I am very very happy for you😁🎉

    30. Mike Sledge

      Congratulations Alec

    31. Mr.Zorro

      If you use a rawhide hammer then you wont leave any hammer dents in the ring of course i dont know how it would work with gold and it is a slower process however thats something i do

    32. Blank

      When you make skillshare pay for your wedding band.*salute*

    33. Josh Loux

      That hammered finish is stunning! Congratulations to both of you!

    34. CodeName Clan

      Why’s he got suck large hands ? Anyone reckon it’s his hands having adapted to the heat and damage from all the hard work

    35. Allen Newlin

      Congratulations! 🍾🎊🎉🎈

    36. TheMixmastamike1000

      CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!

    37. Katelin Murphy

      I'd love to get my wedding bands but I don't know where to look can anyone help me

    38. PandE PandE

      Yay!!!!!!! She said yes!!!!!!! I wondered that when I watched the video of you making her engagement ring. Congratulations!

    39. Jake Evans

      honestly i love making hammered finished silver rings. haven't quite had the balls yet to invest in some gold to make rings yet haha. But beautiful work :)

    40. Katherine Rayos

      Am I the only one that finds it romantic how he used the gold from her ring making and put it in his. I mean yeah he's recycling but Awe

    41. Painkiller DCXVI

      He has super beefy hands lol

    42. Andrew Davis

      Imagine if she said “No”

    43. MrMartwy

      WTF. She???

    44. WolfsbaneFilms

      That hammered texture is so lovely and badass. If I ever get married and make the rings, I’m definitely doing that.

    45. Aaron Mohs-Hale

      glad it turned out well! little tip for the future; don't pour the investment straight down into the flask. try pouring with the flask at an angle, this will help pop bubbles in the investment as it pours down. of course, it came out fine this time. but just to think about for the future!

    46. the TOMSTER

      gotta say: that hammered finish looks killer!

    47. Drinking Sake With Neo

      We want to meet your fiance

    48. steak egg'n chips

      premium sausage fingies

    49. Da Mc-eighty-one

      Congratulations! I was wondering if you were going to keep the hammered finish. Nice job!

    50. parker benz

      Amazing, but 24k gold rings are much better!

    51. Ms. LaKiesha Chavon DeLoatch

      Wow!!! They look absolutely amazing tfs congrats on your engagement 💒💍

    52. Shortzy

      amazing looking rings.

    53. RndmGmr223

      Congrats Alec!

    54. munir dion

      Inggih aku paham ganteng, iya aku mau

    55. Tatiana Anthony

      I love that you used the sprue from your fiance's ring to cast your own! That's really sweet and just warms my heart. Congrats on the engagement!

    56. Steven Rogge

      Well Done Alec Well Done.

    57. shiori1425

      I'm surprised your ring isn't made with damascus steel instead of gold...or maybe damascus gold? haha

    58. Davis Tuck

      Alec i had my rings made out of tungsten. Maily because im a mechanic and dont want it getting damaged

    59. Davis Tuck

      My utmost congradulations to you sir

    60. Nicholas Donovan

      These are absolutely stunning pieces of art! Very well done, there's nothing more special than hand made personal touches. That being said, please, Please, PLEASE! be careful when working in the shop! Those metal rings can get caught and tear your finger up. Rubber/silicone rings with great for this!

    61. Æ BeakedPath

      I love the hammered finish on the ring. I think it gives a lot of character to the ring as you are a blacksmith.

    62. Simon Saul

      Who else came here after watching " Making engagement ring for my fiance" to see more work of this talented man....!!

    63. Tyler Brandt

      Man if you ever decide you want to start selling rings im looking for a damascus wedding band!

    64. GumbyJeeves

      Love the look of those rings Alec, congratulations!

    65. ILoveHorses❤🐎

      Sweetie, make something special for your Mom & her Mom, too!

    66. ILoveHorses❤🐎

      Impressed with the high quality of your videos! This should be on t.v.!!!

    67. Kati Casey

      Imagine how awkward it would be if she said no. What would you have done with the wedding band 😂

    68. ILoveHorses❤🐎

      Happy congratulations!

    69. Kai Haapasaari

      Congrats! I’ve been following your doings from UK to all the way to this day. For what you do... as just my personal experience I’ve seen that it might get to be almost impossible and that might be a reason not being married 😂 but hey never let that to happen mate!!
