Tools were one of the reasons I was so drawn to metalsmithing. And I also think they show the 'hand' in handmade. Sometimes it is best to not see the tool marks, but I wanted these rings to be all about tools and the texture they can create.
Each ring will be entirely unique, but hammered and loved on with a myriad of tools.
They are made in wax, cast in palladium sterling and start out similarly to my subtlety bands and then are worked until the desired look is created. The inside is completely smooth and comfy.
This listing is for a 5mm band in 14k palladium white gold. Other widths can be made, just ask for prices. They are approx 1.7mm thick.
A patina has been added in these photos, but they can certainly be finished without the patina, either shiny or satin. Satin is actually the default finish b/c the patina will wear down and become more of a satin finish (more quickly for some).
When ordering, please tell me what size you need in the note to seller section, as well as how you would like it finished- patina, shiny or satin (if nothing is noted, satin is the default finish). If ordering over a size 9, please ask for a price adjustment. For questions about sizing - check out my Policies Page!
