It’s hard to know who to trust sometimes, especially when you’re buying online.
Please have a read through my customer reviews and see what they say about me, the experience of working with me and their finished pieces of jewellery.

Thanks again Lisa for all your help and patience. It’s perfect 😍 xx

I first met Lisa at a Spring Fling and was impressed by how passionate she was about creating beautiful jewellery from old pieces. I had an eternity ring that kept losing stones and so it was an ideal source of materials to create a necklace and earrings. Lisa listened carefully to my life story and designed a beautiful necklace inspired by the sea. I can’t recommend Lisa enough if you want something really special!


29 Jan 2024

I came across Lisa while searching for my Partners engagement ring. I knew a few details that were important to Gemma, and among these were that the ring should be as sustainably made and have as little negative impact on the environment and people involved as possible. For Gemma, the person and process was as important as the ring itself.

Before finding Lisa it hadn’t even occurred to me that jewellery might not be vegan, but after learning this I knew that was another thing that we would want for a ring.

After the initial consultation with Lisa I knew that for what Gemma and I both wanted, I wanted to go with a custom piece. I also knew it had to be Lisa making the ring! I immediately felt at ease talking to her and her attitudes and ethos aligned so closely to Gemma’s own, it was as close to having Gemma design the ring herself!

We had several phone calls where Lisa explained just how personal she could make the ring – the stone is cut in the shape of our kittens’ nose! Lisa kept me involved in every step of the process and was always happy to incorporate new ideas or make changes last minute. She sent sketches and photos throughout the process and I even got the opportunity to go to her workshop to see the metal being melted down and to help make part of it.

I’ve loved working with Lisa and really found it to be an amazing experience! So much more personal than a high street jeweller. She thought of every detail and the book we received at the end containing all her notes, sketches and picture is absolutely lovely and something we will keep forever.

Lisa managed to take my jumble of ideas and create the most beautiful ring that is so personal to me and my fiancé! I would absolutely recommend her to anyone and I can’t thank her enough! I expect we may be back in the future when it comes to wedding bands…!

I couldn’t have imagined a more perfect engagement ring. Somehow Lisa and Matthew managed to not only imagine, design and create a ring that I felt proud to wear from an ethical and environmental standpoint, but one that felt so perfect for me. So many thoughtful touches and details are entwined in this little treasure. The fact that it looks like it has been forged in a forest is just perfect. And almost as wonderful as the ring is the book alongside it; beautifully capturing the details and story of its creation.

I love it all more every day. Thank you!

Hello Lisa,
I am the very lucky recipient of one of the pairs of jade earrings that you recently made for my mum, Sheila. I just wanted to message and say how delighted I am with them – they really are beautiful and it’s so special to have something that incorporates jewellery that belonged to my Gran.

What an amazing job!
Thank you


 I’ve received my pendant, thankyou.

I wore it for the first time when I went out to a birthday party last night and I really love it.


Hi Lisa

Just to confirm that the ring arrived safely and that we’re delighted thank you 😊!  It’s just what she wanted with the different blue sapphires, just beautiful.


21 June 2022

Hi Lisa

They’ve arrived and are truly beautiful. It was difficult to see quite how delicate the pendant was in the photos. And the ring is gorgeous and fits perfectly.

I am so delighted – thank you.

Hi Lisa – a quick message to say Merry Christmas! And also to let you know that Holly loved the anklet you made for her – it’s really lovely.  Thank you so much. 


Lisa has bespokely designed my engagement ring and throughout the process she’s been so kind and considerate.
She’s truly listened to our history, our taste and taken everything into account to create it.  I love the unique piece that she has crafted, it will be forever special.
Lisa is a real gem!

Dear Lisa

I ordered a bespoke engagement ring from Lisa and she couldn’t have been more helpful. She helped me design the ring and gave me lots of options and advice. The ring fits my fiancée perfectly and looks amazing.

The ring is so lovely (recycled silver lichen ring) and goes so nicely with my other jewellery! It fits perfectly and I’m in love with it!


Recently purchased the kalimera bangle and earrings as a gift. I’m over the moon with them both, they’re beautiful and my mum (recipient) loves them too! Thanks Lisa, you were so helpful throughout!


Thank you so much for all you have done Lisa, we both love my new ring.  I keep looking at it and can’t believe it’s mine, it’s stunning.
I’m pleased you enjoyed working on the redesign and love the end result too.

I had an idea in my head, and a drive in my heart to turn earrings from my mum, into cufflinks for my sons wedding day.
I lost mum 16 weeks ago, so wanted my son to have a piece of my mum with him throughout all of his wedding.
The wedding will be a scottish wedding with kilts, so I wanted silver thistles, with the stone of mums earring to be the middle of the thistle.
All of this was in my head, but after having discussions with Lisa, she drew and drafted my vision, then turned it into a reality.
I am now in receipt, of the most beautiful bespoke, hallmarked, silver thistle cufflinks, bearing mums stones in the middle of the thistle flower. They have also been engraved for me.
I am overwhelmed with how stunning they are, attention to detail and finish.
Can’t thank Lisa enough, for having the talent, ability, vision and creativity to translate what was in my head into such beautiful jewellery, which is now 1 of it’s kind.
And these now have a place in our history and hearts, and will be handed down, with this story….
I can’t recommend Lisa enough !
Anyone who commissions Lisa is going to be nothing short of astounded and delighted at her talent ability and the end result.
I know I was . .
She made my dream a reality.
Feeling forever grateful….


The ring arrived Lisa, I absolutely LOVE it. Thank you so so much. For the necklace too. You have made both of us incredibly happy 🙂 it was an absolute dream working with you. Thank you. Hope you have a wonderful Christmas xox


It is everything that Lorraine loves – organic design; environmentally sustainable and beautiful. Thanks so much for your help.


Lucy loves the pendant. Thank you. X


Was wonderful to see the transformation of my older pieces of jewellery that Lisa was able to do after our initial discussion ..more than happy with result and even have spare gold left over to have something made in the future ..Thankyou


Lisa has re-modelled my wedding ring and eternity rings into a bespoke piece, its fabulous, I’m really delighted with my new ring. Covid held up the process but the end result was well worth the wait. Would definitely recommend her with anything you may want to do. Thank you Lisa


Thank you so much for my gorgeous ring which arrived safely today. I absolutely LOVE it and it fits perfectly. So pleased with it. The
Lichen is gorgeous and love the colour of the pink sapphire. I hope to purchase more jewellery from you in the future and that once things settle down and I can travel back to the SW, will make an appointment to see you in your new studio in Langholm.


I asked Lisa to make me a ring using some pieces of gold and silver that I already had. These were of sentimental value i.e. odd earrings, links from bracelets etc. I wanted a ring that I could wear all the time and one that would be approximately 10 millimetres wide combining both metals. She asked me if there was any theme I would like it to portray and I said  ‘the sea’.  I didn’t want the design to be symmetrical. Lisa showed me a sketch from her own designs for her new collection and I said I would be only too happy if she made me something along those lines but I would leave the design entirely up to her.  I can only say that the end result was exactly as I could have wished for – it is both beautiful and very special to me and shows what a talented lady she is.
Thank you Lisa !


Dear Lisa
Thank you so much for all your advice and help in creating the most beautiful and special eternity ring from my mother’s bar brooch. I am so thrilled with it and I know will enjoy wearing it in her memory.


Hi Lisa, just to let you know that the rings arrived today. They are beautiful, many thanks.


Good morning Lisa

I just had the delivery, both pieces look even better than on the photos, best regards, Jakub


Bangle picked up from sorting office. It’s gorgeous. Cheers Lisa


It’s amazing to see the transformation from a few bits of metal into such a beautiful piece of jewellery. 
Thanks again for all your work and patience,  I’m delighted with the result & glad I decided to take the plunge & go with your suggestions.


Thank you Lisa for my beautiful and much admired Ruby Wedding Ring. Peter and I had a lovely day reaffirming our vows with your ring centre stage. I chose the design simply because I liked it, however when my husband first saw it he said ” a perfect blend of the rough with the smooth to celebrate 40 years married.” Many thanks again, 


Dear Lisa

A huge thank you for  making my new engagement ring.  Straight away it looked just right sitting beside my wedding band.  I love the warm rose gold and how the rounded profiles reflect the light.  The textures on the ring make it really special and show off the sparkling diamond beautifully.  With very best wishes, Diane and Jeremy.

Diane and Jeremy

Hi Lisa,

The ring arrived today. It’s even more beautiful ‘in the flesh’ than it looked online, so thank you very much. I will enjoy wearing it, with thanks, Lorraine


thank you so much for upcycling/recycling/making my beautiful bangle and rewiring my earrings, I could not be more pleased. I can wear my earrings without fear of losing them and they look so much more balanced now, my bangle has surpassed all my expectations and I’m so delighted with it I don’t think I’ll ever take it off! It has been a pleasure working with you and made travel time well worth it. I will very happily recommend you to anyone I know who has old jewellery they need recycled. I hope our paths cross again in the future.


Absolutely over the moon with the engagement ring Lisa made me.  My fiancee loves it so much.  The service is second to none and we will be back for the wedding bands.  Thanks Lisa


Hi Lisa, I don’t know how to begin to thank you for my beautiful engagement ring!  I love it so much, it reflects my personality and I think it’s absolutely amazing!!


I got my rings today, LOVE, LOVE them, thank you so much


Really loved my ring that I made at the Make a Silver Ring Workshop today.  Brilliant class and Lisa’s a super teacher. 
Thanks very much Lisa I’ll definitely be back.


My beautiful ring made by Lisa Rothwell-Young from the sapphire & diamonds in my mum’s engagement ring. My mum’s favourite flower was the anemone and as you can see, there are anemones with the sapphire and the diamonds in the centre of each flower. I absolutely love it and think of my dear mum whenever I wear it. Thank you so much Lisa – such amazing talent.


Dear Lisa
I wanted to thank you so much for my beautiful ring which arrived by Special Delivery yesterday morning. It is absolutely gorgeous and hasn’t left my finger since its arrival!
I also wanted to congratulate you on a seamless process from our visit, through exchange of ring size, the arrival of the unadorned silver ring and then the arrival of the finished ring, all to suit my convenience and availability. Fantastic – even Royal Mail played their part faultlessly!
I shall certainly be in touch in the future and thank you again from a very delighted customer.

I approached Lisa as I was familiar with her work and was looking for a ring to be made that represented something personal and sentimental.
I met with Lisa several times to discuss what I liked and explore options. From the start I was sure I wanted the birth stones of my children included in the ring, however I didn’t want their “traditional” birth stones as the colours weren’t “me”. Lisa researched the birth stones, identifying what other colours were available in the stones. In the end we decided on pink garnet and white sapphire.  Lisa had the idea of incorporating “waves” into the ring to represent my husbands career at sea, with the waves binding us together with our children’s birth stones. I felt this idea and design captured my personality and family perfectly.  Throughout the process of making the ring Lisa kept me informed, sending me photos and I even got to visit her working away in her studio.

I am absolutely delighted with my ring, often receive compliments from strangers. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Lisa to anyone who is looking for an individual piece of jewellery, she really listens and has a real flair – thank you Lisa!


I’m in love.  Thank you so much it is not only absolutely gorgeous but I get to wear something so pretty everyday that means so much to me… there was maybe even a wee tear in my eye when I put it on next to my Gran’s engagement ring. You are an absolute superstar.


After seeing some of Lisa’s work on display we went to visit her at the studio to find out more about having our wedding rings made. We didn’t have any clear ideas about what we wanted but Lisa gave us lots of ideas and helped us to decide. To ensure that the fit was exactly right around my engagement ring Lisa made up my wedding ring in silver first, and I was able to wear it for a few days to make sure that I was happy with it. The end result was a pair of rings that we are love and that really are unique. Working with Lisa was a great experience!

Jennie & Tom

Lisa and I chatted together to make my stunning ring. It was made from sentimental rings to my requested design. Lisa was lovely and helpful and kept me updated at different stages of progression. I visited Lisa’s workshop to see these different stages which was really interesting. So pleased and happy with this ring of which my family and friends admire. Many thanks Lisa


Dear Lisa,
I absolutely adore my ring. Your design is stunning and although I’ve only been wearing it for a day and a half,  I have already had numerous compliments!   I’m really enjoying wearing my ring and can’t believe it’s turned out so gorgeous. Thank you for creating such a beautiful piece of Jewellery for me and also for such a lovely experience.
Lynn. x


What can I say…it’s a very beautiful piece of art, thank you so much, Anne will be delighted.


Hi. Thanks for the earrings which have arrived safely and are lovely. A treat for myself with some birthday money from the big birthday last month.


I can’t tell you how pleased we were to find Lisa to make our wedding rings. She talked to us at length about what we wanted (neither of us knew!), and by a process of elimination, and discussion of her techniques and approaches, we ended up with the best rings in the world. Dave, chose a lichen effect, thin silver band, and I decided on an experimental technique that involved placing a raw ruby in the sand-cast before pouring the molten silver in (I think!). People haven’t stopped complimenting me on it – the ruby peeks out from the silver like a shy kitten – and it reminds me of the jewellery you see in the ‘Romans’ sections of museums. Every time I look at it I smile.


Hi Lisa, I want to write you this message to thank you for designing my 21st birthday ring!  I absolutely love it and the fact that it’s my granny’s wedding ring melted down and combined with leather from my horses bridle is just an amazing piece and one that I will treasure!  The amount of detail and thought that you have put into it is mind blowing!


Dear Lisa, we just wanted to say a big thank you for the two lovely rings which you made for us.  Suilven was bathed in lovely sunshine when we saw it on our honeymoon!

Alison & Robert

Lisa, thank you so much for the lovely ring you designed for me on the occasion of my “Ruby Wedding” .  My ring was very much admired on Saturday night at the party.  It is now an heirloom and will be very much treasured.  Thanks again Lisa


We are both delighted with the ring and look forward to Bobbie presenting it for your inspection on the appropriate finger!

Tom & Bobbie

When I decided that I wanted to learn how to make ‘proper’ jewellery, I came across Lisa’s website offering private tuition.  After chatting on the phone I immediately warmed to her, finding her friendly, open and encouraging and couldn’t wait for my first lesson.  Well, it was amazing, I came home with a silver ring. Not only that, I understood perfectly how to do it again and exactly what was needed in terms of tools and materials.  I have since undertaken many lessons with Lisa and learnt so much in each lesson that it is really quite incredible, so much so that I now in fact run my own jewellery making business, something I could have only dreamed of before attending lessons with Lisa.

With Lisa’s private tuition you get a lot for your money.  Firstly you have access to her extensively equipped workshop which is filled with every tool required to make jewellery from your first silver band ring to very complicated intricate designs.  You are able to use the equipment such as hand tools, metal working machinery and soldering torches and much more with detailed instruction. Every step is clearly taught to you allowing you to fully understand the process and create beautiful pieces.

You will learn metal shaping, filing, cutting and soldering as basics then progressing to choose from techniques such as stone setting (e.g bezel setting, flush setting and claw setting), etching, riveting, chain making, clasp making, complicated soldering, highly skilled setting making, lost wax carving, melting and milling and more.  With her years of experience if you want to learn a particular technique, she can show you how. If you have a design or piece in mind that you would like to make, you can ask Lisa and she will show you how to make it, guiding you right through the process until you leave with your treasured piece.

Lisa is a lovely person. She will share with you all her knowledge and skills, taking delight in your progress and moving you on quickly as you learn, maximising your time with her.  She also has extensive knowledge of the jewellery trade and business and gives advice and professional mentoring in these areas also.

In taking private tuition with Lisa you have the opportunity to learn how to make amazing jewellery in a fully equipped safe environment, potentially learn a trade and gain a knowledgeable friend to boot.  It happened to me!!

Thank you so much Lisa, you are a fantastic tutor.


Our wedding rings are unique and personal to us made by Lisa Rothwell-Young.  She spent time with us coaxing out from us what is important to us in life and based a design on our musings.  We love the rings and feel they are very special.  Thank you so much Lisa

Lesley & Lynda

When my (now) husband and I began to look for wedding rings we couldn’t find anything we liked. We dismissed making our rings because we thought it would be an expensive and laborious process. We couldn’t have been more wrong! When we began to talk to Lisa she was friendly and professional. Lisa spoke to us about materials and design. She helped us think about things we would never have thought about; including using stones which had been in old jewellery. I was able to use a combination of responsibly sourced ‘new’ stones and one which had been in my grandmother’s jewellery.
The day we made our wedding rings was amazing and such good fun! Lisa guided us through the process with her kind and patient manner. She was encouraging when the metal didn’t do what we wanted it to do. At every step Lisa answered our questions and made us feel at home. I learnt things about a jeweller’s work and tools I would never have known if I’d not made my own ring. I definitely have a new appreciation of the time and effort it takes to craft such beautiful things.
Our time and effort was worth it, the finished rings are beautiful and completely unique. But better than that we shared an experience with Lisa that neither me nor my husband will ever forget. I would recommend to anyone and everyone, make your own wedding rings and make them with Lisa Rothwell –Young!

Kate & Gavin

They arrived today Lisa and I love them!  Thank you so much xxxx


Arrived and it’s lovely, thank you!


Pendant received, it’s gorgeous, many thanks


Lisa designed a beautiful ring for me using my engagement ring, wedding ring and my mums eternity ring, I love it x


The ring has arrived – it looks fabulous and fits perfectly.  I couldn’t be more delighted”


I recently had a beautiful ring made by Lisa.  I had a voucher to spend and really wasn’t sure what I wanted.  I’ve never had the opportunity to design a piece of jewellery before! Lisa was excellent in giving me advice and ideas about what I could have.  Once we decided I was going to have a ring made, the next step was to choose a stone.  Again, I had no idea.  Lisa showed me some examples of what I could choose and I immediately fell in love with a moonstone.  Lisa involved me in every step of the design process and I am absolutely delighted with the finished piece.  Lisa just got it so right and the ring is very ‘me’.  It is very dainty but so, so beautiful!  I just can’t stop looking at it when I wear it!  Thank you so much!


Hi Lisa, 

It’s arrived & is just as I was hoping it would be. Its beautiful & absolutely Jill. She will love it.  Thank you so much.  Cant wait to give it to her, so excited 🙂
Very warmest regards

Hello Lisa,

The ring arrived today. I was nervous opening the box ( just as I was with Jill’s ) but needn’t have been. You’ve done another fabulous job & it fits perfectly. Thank you. I love how it goes well with Jill’s ring.
All the best
