Product Description

Either I am brain dead today or this ring just wants to remain Unnamed. And sometimes, not labeling things is just a nice way to go. Just look at it and see if it calls your ‘name’.

Vintage glass cabochon in peach/lavender that shines when you tilt it this way and that. Two Swarovski crystals in milky opal blue decorate the sides of the ring.

Size Not Alterable

HOW IT WAS MADE:

I hand formed a ring base with a vintage opalescent peach and lavender glass cabochon in the center of it and then allowed magic to happen. This elegant ring was created using a process called electro-forming. After I cure and seal the ring base it is hooked up to an electric circuit and submerged into a special bath that allows the current to flow, carrying with it molecules of copper that adhere themselves to the ring form. This process can take between 12-24 hours per ring. It is a long wait but well worth it. No two rings are ever alike and no results are completely predictable. (This is both fun and sometimes challenging for parts of my personality… haha.) When I feel the ring is solid and complete I go through many stages of removing excess metal, polishing the inner ring band, cleaning crevices, adding a patina and then sealing it. The interior of the ring is double sealed with clear jewelry lacquer and the outside of the ring is sealed with a museum grade micro-crystalline wax. This holds up quite well but over time, as all coatings do, it may wear and allow the natural glow of the metal to change and darken. I love the evolution of this which is why I do not seal the outer layers with lacquer, unless they are color treated or by special request.
