Earthy | Simple

Growing up I've always loved rings. There's something so simple about a band on your finger that makes your heart smile. I have a collection of rings, some skinny, some giant cocktail rings, some are fancy, some are made of plastic, some are even broken, but as I look at each one I remember a moment in my life.

I was drawn to the history behind lost wax casting and rose cut stones, a time where things were simply made, when the world moved just a little bit slower.

When choosing gemstones, I think of my dachshund. He has one blue eye, one brown eye, is spotted all over and coos like a bird, he's odd, I immediately fell in love. I feel the same about stones, each one has it's own special markings which tell their story, the journey they've been through. I love oddballs, that's how I see myself.

Once the stone is chosen, I begin by sculpting a home for it out of wax. I then make a plaster mold of the wax ring and allow it to set. The mold now goes into my kiln for many hours during which the wax is melted out. Next I melt the gold with my torch and spin it into the mold using a centrifugal casting machine. It then gets quenched in water, there is a mini explosion as the plaster mold is destroyed. My heart smiles as I dig to the bottom of the quench bucket and find your little gold sculpture.

Even the simple bands are individually made as I don't have rubber molds. At one time I decided it would be smarter to have these molds so I bought a rubber wax mold vulcanizer and a wax injector. I made many molds and it seemed like it took forever to cut them all open. I injected them with wax and had lots of rings all at once. They looked fine but I didn't like them, they felt cold like they were from a factory. I threw out all of my rubber molds and decided that I would make each ring one at a time.

Dear visitors, Welcome to Sunday Owl.

I grew up in an environmentally conscious household, I keep that in mind and do my best with my business. I use recycled gold and when possible will choose natural green products over chemicals.

I cleanse all of the gemstones in the ocean or the dirt as I believe that they carry energy. I purchase stones from people who have pledged to follow the Kimberley process. I want my art to be filled with LOVE and peacefulness △. My gold is from Hoover and Strong, they use recycled metal and do their best to protect the environment.

I love my Etsy shop. Please message me if you have any questions. Thank you for your visit.
