Lulu. A rouged up gold band.

I first made this band many years ago in my casting class as we were learning to use sheet wax. I felt like it was a little too neat for me, so I decided to rough it up and give it a porous texture before it was cast. I'm that girl who loves included stones and porosity on gold, they're so much more interesting to me. Lulu is a pretty lightweight band, that's what I love about her, it almost feels like you're not wearing a ring. She is made with 18k gold, is about 3mm wide and has a matte rustic finish.


△ I can make Lulu for you in your size, please message me for pricing if the size you need is larger than an 8 1/2. Keep in mind that she is handmade and will be similar, but not exactly as the one in the photo. Your Lulu will have her own markings. Please allow 3-5 weeks.


A little about how your ring was made.

Lost wax casting. I begin by creating a wax model of your ring. I then make a mold of it with plaster. After it sets, I place your mold into my kiln for many hours during which the wax is melted out. Next I melt your gold and spin it into the mold using a centrifugal casting machine. It is then quenched in water, there is a mini explosion as the hot flask hits the water and your plaster mold is destroyed. Now for my favorite part, I 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 may seem a bit extreme for a simple gold band, but I love the organic softness which is created by wax.

Please message me before you check out. I will look into shipping costs for you and see if I am allowed to send gold to your country as there are many restrictions.
