This ring started with a lovely double terminated black crystal.
In the photos you will see the natural inclusions in the stone which adds to it's beauty & unique-ness.
The design of the ring started in wax by me forming a base to fit the stone.
I used 2 bands connected by little bridges. and the stone is set with infinity prongs- meaning they end at the other end of the ring's base.
I then carefully remove the stone from the wax pattern and place the wax ring into a silica mold that heats to 1200 degrees f. wherein the wax melts out leaving a void.
I then use my totally badass casting torch to cast molten metal into the mold.
This my friends, is called the lost wax technique.
A hand spun casting machine- old school- uses centrifugal force for the metal to cast into the mold.
Once it is cooled, I remove the 'now' metal ring which once was wax.
I then hand smooth & polish it, and then permanently set the stone.
The metal in this ring came from old & broken pieces of 10k yellow gold, 10k rose gold & 10 k white gold, with a tiny bit of 14k gold also.
The larger band is size 6.5, the smaller is 5.5. I can slightly upsize each band for no charge, but cannot downsize.
The crystal is just over 1" long
