WoodenGold shop is owned by Stephen Cichocki who started out by studying sculpture at Cardiff School of Art and Design. After which he got into creative industries making architectural models, theatre and television sets, props, and weapons for films. Although Stephen had a great job he did not like using non-recyclable materials like foams, resins, polyester, etc for his work.
He wanted to make something sustainable and made with high construction quality to stand the test of time, which inspired him to start WoodenGold. “My goal is to make pieces that have significance and stand out, display the subtle beauty of nature and are truly one of a kind. Every person and relationship is so unique, why would you want to express it with something mass-produced?” says Stephen.
As of now, WoodenGold features beautiful rings in a variety of patterns, textures, and colors. Every piece is hand-carved and single cast by Stephen, adding to its unique pattern and texture. He uses materials like gold, sterling silver, wood, and natural stones to create beautiful rings.
