Cast Record Keeper Ring 1
Cast rings are some of my favorite pieces to make, and every time I cast a round of them I'm always impressed by the variety of textures and forms I can get from casting the same ring.
These rings were made using a method called Delft Sand casting. I first fabricated a ring to use as the mold, then cast each ring individually with a record-keeper sapphire carefully placed in the empty space in the mold, and pouring molten sterling silver into it. Only certain stones can take the heat of the cast-in-place technique, so when I bought these sapphires I knew exactly what i wanted to do with them.
Only a few of these actually “worked” the way I wanted them to, and this was raised the bar! The chunky “prong” holding the sapphire in is actually its own print, left in the mold after I had shifted its position. The flush-set stones speckled around the ring add a pop of color and originality to it
This size 7.25 ring has a record keeper sapphire cast in place, and a diamond flush-set into the top. This rustic and organic piece is perfect for an everyday ring.
