    I made my first aluminum rose for my wife as a 10th anniversary gift, since aluminum is one of the traditional materials for ten years. She loves it, and asked me to make more and to make them available to everyone!

    My handmade roses incorporate 24-gauge aluminum for the petals, and mild steel for the stem. I don't use any of the standard blacksmith pattern-book designs for my petals: each blossom is cut by hand from aluminum sheet, textured by hand hammering, and fastened tightly to the steel stem by cold-peening, just like a tenon or rivet of old.

    A metal rose makes a perfect wedding gift, anniversary gift (no matter the year!) or simple Valentines rose. It's a Forever Rose that will never wilt, shed petals or need any more care than dusting!

    In addition to a plain metal finish, I offer a gloss black finish for that "goth rose" or industrial feel, a gold finish for an elevated decoration, or a more traditional red-petals, green-leaves-and-stem painted look.

    Prices are for a single rose.
