One-of-a-kind handmade whale tail ring design wraps all around the finger. First I carve the ring in wax to fit perfectly around the opal, then plaster is poured around the wax. The plaster is super-heated in a kiln, where the wax is lost by being melted out, leaving a hot hollow cavity. Molten gold is poured into the cavity and placed on a centrifuge where it is pulled into the inner space. When the gold cools, the plaster is removed leaving the gold ring in the exact shape of the wax.
