The Wolfshook ring is now available on CoS Emporium
I'd like to let you know the process as to how each ring is made. This is not a fast process and the rings are not mass produced therefore you will need to be patient while waiting for your order. Know now that your ring will be completely unique. Here is a brief description of the process as written by Magistra DeMagis.
How each ring is made:
Each ring is formed using the artistic lost wax method.
Lost wax method or casting is an ancient process dating back thousands of years to ancient Egypt, Greece and Rome. It is still the best method for capturing exquisite detail in metal objects, which could not otherwise be produced given the complexity of their design. This process allows anything modeled in wax to be recreated fully and faithfully into various metals.
A wax original model is created of the sculpture. Care must be taken to capture the smallest of detail; all details and features the artist desires in the finished piece must appear in the wax model. The wax model is then encased in liquid rubber which, once set, is carefully cut away to provide a “negative.” Molten wax is injected into this cavity, which is allowed to cool. It is next removed from the rubber mold in the form of the original. After careful inspection, the new wax model is covered with plaster of Paris and fired. The heat melts the wax, which trickles out through a tiny opening and is thus “lost.” All that remains in the plaster is a perfect hollow in which every surface detail of the wax model is captured. Molten high quality silver is then poured into the plaster mold. Once the silver has sufficiently cooled, the plaster mold is broken apart, revealing your beautifully detailed Wolfhook ring. The ring is then cleaned and checked to ensure that every detail of the original has been faithfully reproduced in silver. A blackening agent is applied and the ring is polished to the desired effect. Next, jeweler’s enamel is baked on for a finish that will never wear away and nicely frames the rune. Finally, the piece is hand polished and numbered.
This process is lovingly time consuming, but worth the wait. Please expect 8-10 weeks delivery, although we will make every effort to shorten this wait time, as we understand your excitement and anticipation.
