Casting my name

Yesterday I had my first casting experience, and I started with a ring: “MY NAME IS” ring.
These are few sketched ideas

The wax model was sprunged it and invested

The ring was casted and here is how it looked once the silver was quenched

The sawed out ring is ready for the cleaning process

But I couldn’t resist trying it on!

Are you addicted to metal now? I love your paper jewelry and your metal ring is equally impressive!

I'm secretly working on metal since almost one year!
In one week I'll be in SF for two months, a full immersion in metal at Revere,but paper is still my first love!

Awesome work. I designed my wedding rings on paper & was amazed to watch them do all the casting. It's such an involved process.

Danielle Miller-Gilliam said...

I'm so jealous! I would love to take a Revere class!
Have fun!

Beautiful! I wouldn't want to get punched in the face with that though.

Indeed self-protection is just one more use of this ring
