The pictures of this ring don't do it justice; it looks even better in person. Komodo dragons are my favourite reptile (and favourite animal in general), and it's quite rare finding anything representing one, so when I saw this ring I knew I had to buy it. I based the size off of another ring I wore on the same finger, and it fits perfectly, snug but not too tight. I've never owned any bronze jewelry before this, so I appreciate the note about care instructions for the ring. Thank you!
My name is Crystal. I work out of my studio in Los Angeles. I have a background in the fine arts, mostly self taught. I took a few jewelry classes at a junior college. Found working with the metals fascinating. Continue working with metals in welding and machining.
Using my art background for composition and design, I find and make parts for jewelry that tells a story. Most of my inspirations and themes are base on nature and my love of animals. My jewelry are torch solder/brazed or fused together, and lost wax casting. And then it goes through a cleaning process to remove the oxidations from the heat of the torch. Burrs and sharp edges are rounded smooth for comfort. The piece is then hand patina and hand aged to bring out the beauty of the metal and the piece. Some piece are lightly lacquered to bring out the patina.
Each piece is carefully package in a complementary jewelry gift box. I take great care in making each piece of jewelry and take extra care in shipping them to my customers.
