About

Creation Process

My handcrafted jewelry is created by using the lost wax casting process. I first design each piece in wax by hand. I model the design by using different gauge wax rods and sheet.
I attach my wax jewelry to a rubber base using sprues. This is a "tree". I then mix a powder plaster investment with water. The mixture is poured over the tree which is in a flask container. There is a seven hour burn out period inside a kiln where the wax evaporates leaving a negative impression in the hardened plaster where the wax jewelry once was. Precious metal is poured into the negative space inside the flask. The flask is quenched in water and broken away from the now metal tree.
Casting is just the beginning of this jewelry making process. I can start finishing each piece of jewelry. I use a series of metalsmithing techniques which include grinding, polishing, filing and sanding. I fabricate jewelry findings and bezels. Jewelry findings and bezels are soldered onto the cast piece. Stones are set, pieces are polished and finished. Every part of the process is done by me in house.

Sizing details

I will resize rings before shipping no extra charge. I can go up two sizes without adding extra metal. Only if I add extra gold would I charge an extra fee based on weight of metal added. Please allow extra time for me to process order before shipping if I am resizing your ring. *Please note spoon rings cannot be resized.
