I loved to make this ring, I made it for myself. My sign is Aries and I wanted a ring, which shows my inner strength. I am an Aries on the inside, not on the outside. Who knows me, doesn’t suspect me to be an Aries at first. When they know me better, they do. A strong garnet to keep me grounded, two diamonds aside to keep my head clear and as a symbol for my two loved ones. Two curved horns, well… yes, I’m Aries.
As with many of my jewelry I made the ring in wax first. It’s like making a sculpture. I add and remove wax, making a rough shape, see if it’s going to be what I have in mind. When the feel is right, I start to refine the wax model, which can be a very time consuming proces.
When the wax model was ready, the ring was casted in 18ct gold. After casting there is still a lot of work to be done. Sawing, filing, sanding… cleaning and polishing. And after that, the most tricky part; to set the stones.
