These great rings are carved from wax and cast in sterling silver. The leopard print center is surrounded by beaded granulation. The squares measure ~12mm and are 4mm thick. Tough yet dainty!
The Redux version has 24k gold foil applied using the ancient Korean technique of Keum Boo, and the rings then have a patina applied to enhance the gold. The black tone will fade over time revealing highlights, but the gold lasts forever.
