Gio Ring, Bronze or Sterling Silver
I've used a section of actual section of cactus wood to create a stunning statement ring with a pattern of ovals. It is cast in sterling silver or nickel-free bronze using lost-wax casting. I start with a wax model, and then a plaster mold is made from the wax. Liquid metal is poured into the mold and heated in a kiln to create the final ring. The band is hand-soldered to the metal cactus piece, and then tumbled, tumbled, and tumbled again. Each ring is lightly oxidized and polished to bring out the wood texture and shine.
The deep indentations in the cactus made it very tricky to cast, but give the finished product amazing depth and texture. The look of this beautiful ring is both organic and space-age. It will compliment just about anything you wear with it, and it's an attention-getting and distinctive piece, with just the right touch of mod glam.
Both bronze and sterling can be cast in any size. The silver band is 2mm wide. Convo me with the size you need. Please allow 10-14 days for the creation of your custom-made ring.
