Rough and refined handmade jewelry inspired by the past

Feros Ferio Jewelry is a line of unique handmade jewelry, designed by Moragh Chisholm in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. I have two shops on Etsy:
www.etsy.com/ca/shop/ferosferio where you will find bronze, silver, and gemstone jewelry and www.etsy.com/ca/shop/FFconcrete where you will find my bronze, silver and concrete jewelry.

My pieces are created in bronze and sterling silver using the lost wax technique. Lost wax casting is an ancient art form, dating from the 3rd millennium bc, in which a molten metal (bronze or silver, in my case) is poured into a mold that has been created by means of a wax model. Once the mold is made, the wax model is melted and drained away and the metal is introduced.

I create all the wax models and take them to be cast at a local, independent casting studio just down the street (lucky me!) from my small home studio. I receive the castings in their rough state and clean them up by filing and polishing.

My influences are varied. I am an Art History major, and I absolutely love historical styles - from Etruscan, Greek and Roman, to Celtic, Viking and Medieval. I also love ethnic jewelry from Africa, India and the Middle East. Anything that is, or was made with very little in the way of technology fascinates me.

So, what does Feros Ferio mean?

It is the motto of Clan Chisholm (a clan from the wild Highlands of Scotland, of which I am a bastard descendant). It is translated as “I am fierce with the fierce” - a savage battle cry, maybe. But I like to interpret it to mean that, sure, I can be fierce with the fierce, but mostly I’m really nice with the really nice!

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalized orders

Custom orders and personalized items (i.e. initial jewelry) take between 7 to 10 days to fabricate.

Sizing details

Due to elevated costs (time and shipping) I have decided to not resize rings. So please be certain of the ring size you would like. Some of the ready to ship silver rings can be sized up a half size (prior to purchase). So if you see one you like, but need it a little bigger, contact me.

Care instructions

Most of my bronze items are coated with a jewelry lacquer. They should be cleaned with mild soap and water. Abrasives risk damaging the finish.
Sterling silver jewelry can be cleaned with a jewelry polishing cloth.

Gift wrapping and packaging

All items are gift wrapped. If you are sending your order as a gift and would like a gift card included, let me know in the note to seller box at checkout, where you can also include the message you would like.

I welcome wholesale orders. Contact me for more info.
