A sweet wedding band, the beginning of a rustic love story.

Sophie is modern earthiness. She is 1.65mm wide. Although she is very simple, I chose to make a mold of her in wax and cast her using the lost wax method. I love the subtle softness that the wax forms which is difficult for me to achieve using gold wire. Sophie's not just a wedding band, you can stack a few of them together to make any outfit a little prettier.

This listing is for one band. The last photo shows Sophie with a bigger band, Nara.

A little about how your ring was made.

Lost wax casting. I begin by creating a wax model of your ring and making a mold of it with plaster. After it sets, I place it into my kiln for many hours during which the wax is melted out. I then melt your gold and spin it into the mold using a centrifugal caster. Now for my favorite part, I quench your mold in water and dig to the bottom of the bucket to find your little gold sculpture. I'm so happy, your ring is ready to be cleaned, textured and finished. This seems a little extreme for a simple gold band, but I love the organic softness which is created by wax.

I love rustic oddball things with quirks and character, a little rough around the edges. All
pieces are formed with wax than cast using the lost wax method. All are tumbled for strength.
I select gemstones for their beauty and natural inclusions, it reminds me of the journey they've been through.
