When I learned about the lost wax casting process I knew it was exactly what I wanted to do, I am not a big jewelry person but to me this is more like mini-sculptures. I chose bronze because I love the warm color that has when polished and as long as you wear it it will stay polished due to your body oils and your constant movement against your clothing. This piece was the first piece I made while playing with a piece of beeswax, I've been wearing it for years and figured it was the first part of my collection. It's not perfect, there are dents and marks - but it's perfectly imperfect! This piece runs small - I will make more sizes coming soon - you can bend a bit to fit your wrist just put it on the fleshy part of your wrist. Bronze is used in Ayurvedic medicine and is said to have immune boosting properties, ancient scriptures describe bronze as increasing the intellectual level of those who use it - hand made in Rhode Island.
