“Harry, I’m going to let you in on a little secret. Every day, once a day, give yourself a present. Don’t plan it. Don’t wait for it. Just let it happen. It could be a new shirt at the men’s store, a catnap in your office chair, or two cups of good, hot black coffee. ”
~Dale Cooper, Character on Twin Peaks
Hear that? Everyday. Something. Just pick a thing. Treat yourself kindly. Love you.

HOW IT WAS MADE:
I hand formed a ring base with tiny double terminated quartz crystals facing each other, dancing in space. Then I allowed magic to happen. (In a mad-scientist, chemicals brewing, evil laugh kind of way). 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.
