Created out of 100% recycled sterling silver this rain drop ring is like water drop as it hits the surface of a lake, a moment captured and frozen in time. It is one of a kind, the cup shaped uniquely by water and gravity. The ring in the photos is a size 8.5.

MATERIALS & PROCESS

♢ Solid sterling silver (100% recycled)

♢ The cup shape is water cast, and the process creates a unique natural form, full of texture. It is slightly oval in shape, perfect in its imperfectness.

♢ To start, I gather all my sterling silver I plan on using and melt it down to over 1700 ℉. When the silver is nice and liquid I carefully pour it into water. As the molten metal hits the surface it sizzles and freezes in place, capturing the moment when the silver is transformed. I love this because each cup is totally unique, outside of my control and I don’t know what kind of shape will emerge!

♢ I add a little balled up droplet to the center and solder it together on a thin and elegant band.

♢ The last step is to add a dark patina to the inside of the cup shape and polish the ring until the surface shines. This contrast between dark and light is what sterling silver is famous for!

INSPIRATION & SYMBOLISM

♢ The process of water casting for my "rain drop" collection is a very meaningful experience for me. As I create these water cast pieces they speak to my soul and I see God showing me something new through the literal process of refining. As I melt down the old to create something new I am reminded of a refreshing spring rain, bringing with it growth and new life.
