This perfectly formed sterling silver water casting drop makes a lovely partner with this pretty white freshwater pearl.

 

This ring is one of a kind and only available in size 5 1/4. This particular water cast rain drop cup is the best I have created so far. It's so lovely and unique because the process of water casting is somewhat outside of my control. As the molten silver (roughly 1763 degrees F) hits the water it freezes and forms a little cup.

Rain Drop Pearl Statement Ring // One of a Kind

SKU: WCR01
C$159.00Price
  • ♢ Solid sterling silver

     

    ♢ White round cultured freshwater pearl (half drilled for an invisible mounting.)

     

    ♢ The cup shape is water cast, and the process creates a unique natural form, full of texture, this is created from 100% recycled sterling silver.

     

    ♢ 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!

     

    ♢The band was carved in wax and cast also into sterling silver (in the traditional way of casting) the ring is a size 5 1/4. Since this is a one of a kind piece this is the only size I have available! The great thing about this band (just like my best selling seed ring style as well) is that is has a square bottom - helping it stay nice and straight when worn, it is also rounded and smooth on the inside- the perfect combination for comfort.

     

    ♢ The water cast cup is soldered onto a band with a post for the pearl. I 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! The half drilled pearl is attached to the post with jewellers epoxy.
