Sorry we’ve been so quiet lately - we have a good excuse. We’ve been working hard on our new website, theringmaker.co.nz – and it goes live today!

It’s currently dedicated to the ring we designed and made for Peter Jackson’s The Lord of The Rings movies, but we’re looking at making all of our jewellery available to buy from there – so please let us know if you like it. 

Plus, it’s free shipping, anywhere in the world, for the whole next month! So if you ever wanted your own Movie Ring, now is the perfect time.

Mid-Year’s Day

In the Middle Earth Calendar, today (June 22), is Mid-Year’s Day, a day of food and festivities, and also, incidentally, Arwen and Aragorn’s wedding anniversary.

To celebrate the day, and the new website, the team and I are planning a Hobbit feast, complete with food inspired by the Shire.

Most of the menu is ‘sourced from Middle Earth’ – supplied by local Nelson businesses, and in many cases organic. We’d like to thank our sponsors for making this possible!

Here’s a sneak peek at what we’ll be feasting on. (Click on the pic to see the full menu).

We’ll share some photos of the party tomorrow.

In the meantime, please check out theringmaker.co.nz - and let us know what you think!
