This ring is made using a gorgeous green Prehnite with darker Epidote inclusions. The inside of the stone reflects the light a bit, giving it a subtle luminescence. **** If you look closely at the first photo, there is a tiny scratch on the stone. In most lighting it just looks like part of the stone, but I have discounted the price accordingly!
Set on a thick band with my signature antiqued tortoise shell patina.
How Its Made: Each stone is handpicked to meet my standards of excellent quality. Ring bands and many other connective parts are hand formed and are then sculpted onto the stone with a permanent epoxy. In the areas where I would like metal to be, I paint each piece with an electrically conductive paint. The next step is to put a removable, protective covering on all stones. The necklace will then go through a process where it is submerged into an acid bath and the areas with the conductive paint will begin to grow a super strong layer of 100% pure copper. This growth process takes 12 - 36 hours for each piece and is monitored during the process. After this is done, each piece is one by one hand polished, cleaned, oxidized, polished again, and then given a clear protective coating.
