Raw Sunstone with her moon made of Ruby cabochon that sits in an orbiting copper shank.

HOW IT WAS MADE:
I hand formed a ring base with a chunky raw Sunstone 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.
Sunstone represents the yang energy, leadership and stepping into one’s own personal power.
The energetic of this stone can be used in devoloping one’s higher purpose, bringing the body into higher frequencies and establishing a new level of stamina. The chakras associated are 2nd (creativity and sexuality) and 3rd (personal will/power).
Ruby represents the root chakra energies, earth and grounding. Drawing more attention and consciousness to physical form, this stone is wonderful for attention to healing the body, cultivating love and connection with self as well as the greater physical, material world around you. Excellent for facilitating bringing you into an expanded version of yourself.
