Description

Ordering a custom wave ring from me is easy! If you don't see your size in the style of wave ring you'd like in one of my other listings this is where you order one made just for you in your ring size.

HOW IT WORKS:
As you checkout, choose your ring size and the finish you'd like your ring to have. Once ordered I will start creating your ring.

***Please allow for slight variations in the design due to the unique properties of mitsuro and the individual craftsmanship of each ring.***

I love it when people leave me a note in their order telling me what characteristics they love the most about this ring. This can help me create the perfect ring for you.

FEATURES:
Sterling Silver Wave Ring
Comes in gift-box
Free shipping!

If you there is another design I create that you'd like made in your size, please message me. I'm looking forward to creating a beautiful ring for you!

Heather Scott's Process:
Heather made this sunshine wave necklace using the ancient Japanese lost wax casting technique called mitsuro. The process begins by blending specific ratios of different materials together to create the mitsuro wax. After cooling, Heather heats the mitsuro to her body temperature and hand manipulates it by pulling, twisting, and folding. During this process, delicate striations, called hikime, appear in the wax. This delicate texture accentuates the flow of the organic shapes and nature inspired designs that she creates.

The wax pieces are then placed into a mold and melted out of the mold in a kiln. Once the wax is burned out of the mold, it leaves a hollow area where the wax once was. Heather places the mold into a centrifuge where she melts the metal in a ceramic crucible with a torch. Once the metal is molten, a retaining pin drops and the centrifuge spins rapidly, shooting the molten metal into the mold where the mitsuro wax once was. After the centrifuge stops spinning, she grabs the 1000°F mold with a pair of steel tongs and dunks the mold into a bucket of water breaking the still hot mold open on contact revealing the pieces that were once wax and are now silver or gold.

She then goes through the process of finishing each piece by hand utilizing jeweler's tools. Heather has been perfecting her mitsuro wax recipe and creating her unique mitsuro pieces for 10 years.
