Lilac Druzy Electroformed Ring
This was one of my first designs and has remained one of my favorites to make. The stone, called druzy, drusy, or druse, is a formation of tiny crystals on another stone. The tiny crystals form from waters depositing the crystals on the stone and set through an evaporation process (the science of this is really cool - think of the geodes you crack open!). The druzy stones have all been heated to produce the permanent lilac coloring. The shade varies slightly from stone to stone and you will receive the exact one pictured. This listing is for one ring per order. Due to the nature of crafting the rings, I cannot resize a ring. However, if you do not see your size, please reach out and I am happy to share pictures of the pieces I have in stock in your size. I also offer druzy earrings. Each piece is handmade (by me!) from start to finish through a crafting and electroform process. Each piece takes a week or more to craft. All pieces posted are already made and are ready to ship. The process I use makes each piece totally unique and no two pieces will be exactly the same. The primary metal is copper which has been electroformed onto the piece and sealed to preserve the color. Electroforming is a process that uses electrical currents to “grow” the copper onto the piece. The metal has been sealed and to best maintain the color of the piece, keep your piece free of chemicals and avoid prolonged exposure to water and sweat. You can gently polish your piece and reseal but avoid sealing the stone. Your piece is wearable art! To preserve the quality of your item, avoid exposing your piece to harsh chemicals or submerging in water. Remove your piece before showering and sleeping. Avoid dropping your piece to protect the stones. All pieces are shipped in a jewelry bag inside a cardboard jewelry box with a jewelry care card. This is all packed in a bubble mailer with tissue paper. The jewelry bag is stamped with my cat's face, Garcia. I hope you enjoy your piece as much as I enjoyed creating it for you.
