I’m the founder of WildRock Co. a custom goldsmith business, featuring hand-crafted, solid silver and gold jewellery. I'm a Canadian goldsmith who studied at George Brown in Toronto. Growing up I always loved Greek mythology, as well as, gold and gemstones. It only made sense to teach a hands-on jewellery class for anyone wanting to make a special memory here in Crete, Greece. I, together with the guest will use ancient sand-casting techniques to create a ring or pendant. After casting you are taught how to polish to make a stunning piece of wearable art. Just like the ancient Greeks!

Best experience ever ! If you want to make a unique ring for you or as a gift, it is the perfect experience. Wesley is very cool, ans professionnal. The final steps show incredible results, the ring is wonderful. Plus, the environnement is very quiet and typical. Wesley brings lots of different wines from the winnery, all of them are very good (and I am hardly convinced as a french taster ahah). The experience worth the value. It was a very great time !!! Keep it up.

Wesley went way above what we expected. My husband made my 30th anniversary band. I loved watching him work at it! My daughter 14yrs & her friend 15yrs also enjoyed making silver rings that they will have forever. Wesley was kind and attentive and made the whole process interesting and easy. To top it all off we had some of the best wine Greece has to offer and amazing food... not snacks, a meal! If you have a chance to make rings with Wesley do it. You won’t regret it!

While my girlfriend and I were on Crete, I came across Wesley’s AirBnB experience and based on the reviews, decided to try it. Turns out, we had an amazing day! From the start, Wesley came across as super friendly and helpful and had a great sense of humor. Had a lot of fun with the casting and working the ring. The wine tasting was such a great pairing and I might have overindulged a bit, but boy was I feeling good. It took about 4 hours including the lunch, and I chose silver as the material, since this was more about the experience and the sentimental value than anything else. It cost us about 45 euros for the both of us, but it should be noted I chose the thin width and not the thicker one. I think it’s an insanely good deal whatever material you end up picking. I really have a feeling that if he keeps at it, this will take off to the point where you’ll have to reserve well in advance to book a place. Just do it!

My to-be husband and I booked this experience in order to craft our own wedding bands. Wesley was an incredibly helpful, welcoming and lovely host. We had a great time while making the bands from scratch, tasting different (absolutely!) delicious wines and even having local food! This was our most magical moment on crete! I absolutely recommend this experience - and I want to remind you, if you want a special kind of material - just ask beforehand, like we did. Because I got 14K rose gold and my partner got 14k white gold which both are beautiful choices!

Was eine tolle Erfahrung! Meine Freundin und ich sind immer noch ganz begeistert von Wesley, seinen Geschichten und natürlich seiner Expertise bei unserem einzigartigen Event, eigene Ringe zu erschaffen. Wir haben uns jederzeit Wohlgefühlt. Zum „arbeiten“ gab es immer einen Schluck Wein dazu, in der Pause wurden wir sogar von einem kompletten Menü aus griechischen Spezialitäten verwöhnt. Danke an das ganze Team und natürlich an dich, Wesley! Wenn wir wieder auf Kreta sind, kommen wir auf jeden Fall auf ein Glas Wein und Fava vorbei und vielleicht schmieden wir einen weiteren Ring.
