Figurative Art Jewelry

Life is flourishing around us as the summer in Colorado begins! And with the long days of sunlight, blossoming trees and gardens we're planting seeds of love, courage and alignment.  So for our yogis, meditators and lovers of movement and life I offer a handful of new sculptural art jewelry, custom and handmade rings, bracelets, necklaces and earrings, filled with light, love and meditations on bliss, bounty and beauty!  

I hope you enjoy!

The Lost Wax Casting Process

It's late June and I am am busy as a bee carving and casting new jewelry in the studio.  In the lost wax casting process we melt down silver, bronze, gold and pour it into molds.  

...ready to cut and melt pieces of history (sterling silverware) for a new life as artisan jewelry.

The molds are made of a material called Investment (similar to plaster)  poured in iron flasks around wax trees made from the wax carvings we will cast into jewelry.

Each wax carvings is handmade, organically carved and filled with good energy -courage, compassion, bliss and abundance... meditations.  Each casting is a surprise as we see hours and weeks of work turn from fragile beeswax to silver, bronze or gold jewelry, heirloom jewelry that will last for many generations.
