For almost thirty years Todd Alan has been hand crafting one of a kind pieces of intricate jewelry. His self-taught signature style is treasured all over the world. Online since 1999 when Todd started his web based store “Hand Woven Bands”, Todd has handmade and shipped over 10,000 wedding rings to couples all around the world.
Every piece is a very involved step-by-step process:
It has taken almost three decades for Todd to master this unique and one-of-a-kind art form of hand braiding and swirling gold. Every step of the process requires rare jeweler skills and years of repetitious mastery to create these intricate yet sturdy designs.
In a world of mass production, most pieces of jewelry are machine cast or stamped. Here, Todd makes every single one on his bench, one at a time. Todd Alan is a traditional bench jeweler; he uses traditional tools and a hand torch. Raw metal round wire is poured, cut, woven, forged, fused, and filed by hand.
Artist Todd Alan creates his pieces one at a time. This jewelry is not cast or mass produced, but uniquely and individually handcrafted creations. Todd Alan has been a full time metalsmith creating heirloom jewelry since 1986. Inspired by the patterns of nature, Todd’s unique art-form has evolved into his signature style. Each piece of jewelry is a miniature work of art.
“We purchased our wedding bands from Todd Alan studios. I just want you say that our experience from start to finish was absolutely amazing. Lyra is the store manager. She is incredibly personal, very diligent, and was able to make fantastic recommendations and suggestions. We set up a payment plan and paid off our rings over the course of a year. Her communication has been amazing, and her follow up superb.
This is not a one-size-fits-all type of establishment. Our rings were made to order. And they completely stunned us upon arrival. They feel amazing on our hands. They are very comfortable. Completely seamless. And I have not been able to take one picture that does them justice. For the price, I expected great quality. But these have exceeded my expectations by far.
I couldn’t be more pleased or impressed with Lyra’s customer service or with Todd’s craftsmanship. They were both amazing to work with and I can’t recommend them enough. I already have a follow up order in. And I am going to be ordering a mother’s ring for my mom!
So, if you’re on the fence, do it. Everyone who has seen them absolutely loves them, and I’m sure you will too.” – Savanna Cross
“I have been in the jewelry business for 7 years. So when my future sister in law asked me to help he find a wedding band I thought it was an easy task. It wasn’t. I have resources everywhere from New York to Hong Kong and I couldn’t find her the unique ring that she wanted. (a 3 tone braided, “natural looking” band) Until I found your website I though the only thing left was to have her get married in a white gold band and find something later. You not only created something for her that you hadn’t even done before but really gave her the uniqueness that was lacking from all my vendors in the industry, and in record time. Both of us wanted to take the time to say, “thank you”. – Scarlett Otero Almod LTD, Diamonds International
“My husband and I were searching for unique, handmade rings, and fed head over heals for Todd’s work. First, we needed our rings pronto, and he accommodated a pretty rushed order. Additionally, he took his time talking to me because my husband doesn’t like feeling jewelry. He designed our wedding bands and made the gage of the inner wires thinner and the outer band thicker to help meet my husband’s request not to have to wear uncomfortable jewelry. In fact, my husband has never worn a ring prior to this one. Since we’ve received our weddings bands, we both extremely comfortable and happily wear them every day!!!! Todd sculpted and shipped us our rings- PRONTO. These rings are awesome and well worth the money!!!!!!!!!!!!! We are so happy made this purchase and plan to buy more on Todd’s jewelry in the future. Love, love, love his jewelry!!!!!!! I also must not that his co-worker is such a delight to talk to also! If you want a grand ring that’s both creative and beautiful and you want comfort, talk to Todd! – Private User (from Wedding Wire)
