Rebel Star Wars Wedding Engagement Ring In Palladium White Gold w/ a One 1 Carat Moissanite And Blue Diamond Ring!Read More
Life has been very full here as changes have settled and production is able to take place. I moved to a new studio in Oakland, CA and have been gearing up for summer festivities. Meeting great people, loving friends and family, growing as the seasons bring challenges and blessings.
In some exciting news, I have completed a small batch of Honeycomb Bee Rings in sterling silver, adjustable to your size! (Sizes available are 4.5-7.75.) There are only 9 available at the moment, and I am very happy to ship out for free at your ring size. All August sales help me fundraise for efforts to spend a little time at the Burning Man Festival.
I will be shipping rings out until August 22nd. If there are any left, and you could not pick one up at the time but are interested in doing so later, you can favorite the item in my Etsy shop so you can easily bring it up for a later time. (Xmas time is a really busy time for my shop.)
All rings are designed by me using CAD software, and are professionally cast by Jena Hounshell in San Francisco. After the ring is cast in sterling, I carefully clean up the rings by hand and applied a dark liver of sulfur patina. I then brush finish the ring, and lightly polish the honeycomb. This makes the honeycomb pop, yet is subtle enough to make a great accessory.
To anyone who has encouraged me along the way, inspired me to make a move, play a little, and hug a stranger, THANK YOU!!!
So grateful for the opportunity to continue creating. Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have a question, idea, or comment you'd like to share: metal (dot) wendler (at) gmail.com.
This year I met my CO business partners for a chance to shop the best shows together. I brought along a co-worker and friend from the Bay area. Minds were blown, worlds were expanded, fun was had.
Definitely did not get enough pictures from the shows, but here are a few fun ones from the trip:
|Epic sunrise crossing the California Desert. Almost ran out of gas near a state penitentiary. One of those moments you don't forget.|
|Gold Nuggets from Tony and Nadine's booth at the Fossil show. Gold Nugget Imports, Australia.|
|Replica of a Gold Nugget acquired in Victoria, Australia. Over 27 kilos... Sold in Australia.|
|My business partner being silly ;p|
|Amethyst Geode, JG&M Expo|
|Smoky Quartz Specimen, hand for size reference.|
|Fire Agate, Mexico|
|Tucson Mountain Range|
|Last stop in Quartzite for raw specimen. A shot of Jill being a desert dweller.|
This is thick guage brass and nickel silver, more of an experiment to see what was possible to pull off cleanly for the fundraiser. I'm excited to continue and explore this direction.
