At Wendell August Forge we believe every Christmas is made special by the people you share it with. That’s why we forge custom family ornaments from beautiful aluminum and other precious metals. Our heirloom ornaments are designed to last a lifetime, making them a permanent reminder of the wonderful times and traditions you’ve shared each year with the people who matter most. Capture the moment with personalized wedding ornaments or commemorate baby’s first Christmas with a special ornament just for them and see for yourself the magic way our handcrafted pieces preserve the best holiday memories for years to come.
We offer hundreds of traditionally handcrafted metal ornaments, many of which automatically include personalization options. You can also have your favorite ornaments engraved with a special personalized message to make the gift truly unique. There is nothing more special than a gift given from the heart. Show your love with a heartwarming message that will last forever, engraved into a beautiful piece that your loved one can run their fingers over to truly feel the ridges and warmth of your bond. Every year as they decorate the tree they’ll reread your message and smile from ear to ear, knowing that they are loved.
Our ornaments are the perfect gifts to commemorate any major life event. Wish a happy new couple an everlasting romance with one of our beautiful wedding ornaments. Options range from extravagantly decorated wedding cakes like the Celebration Cake Ornament adorned with Swarovski® crystals to charming and whimsical designs like our Love is a Fairy Tale Signature Wedding Ornament. This ornate piece features a lovely fairy tale carriage with scrawling details and the words ‘And They Lived… Happily Ever After’ written around it in a beautiful storybook font.
Newlyweds can find the perfect Christmas gift in one of our many Our First Christmas ornaments. These ornaments come in a variety of styles from classic hearts to sweet lovebirds, with something for everyone’s taste and style. Engrave wedding vows on the back to make this a gift they’ll cherish ‘til death do you part.
