Cast Record Keeper Ring 5
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 some others didn't cast completely around the sapphire, causing it to fall out but leave its stamp in the silver. The extra stones add a pop of color and originality to the rings.
This size 8 ring has a channel-set square garnet and a small flush set diamond on the top. This rustic and organic piece is perfect for an everyday ring.
