Size 7.5 Unisex Minerals Series Recycled Sterling Silver Ring
We are excited to begin offering more metal jewelry on our shop! This quartz crystal-inspired sterling silver ring was made with lost wax casting, an ancient metalworking process. First, a wax model was made which were encased in plaster to make a mold, and heated for the wax to be melted out. The resulting molds were then fired in a kiln overnight, and molten silver poured in. The piece was then cleaned and finished by hand. All Biomorphics castings are made using recycled silver, reclaimed from the local Silicon Valley e-waste stream. In addition, we recycle metal from the casting process itself as well as other sources including scrap sheet metal and wire from our studio, old flatware and jewelry found at thrift stores or given to us as gifts, and the casting process itself!
This fully 3D one of a kind piece of wearable art, weighing around 27 grams, is made from pure .925 sterling silver. This unisex ring is directly inspired by the natural beauty of quartz crystals. It is a size 7.5. 100% handmade in our Oakland, CA studio. Ships within two weeks.
