The Canyon ring is solid sterling silver with stone inlay set into the top. The ring was hand carved from wax, then cast into silver through a “lost wax” process.
I have very few cast pieces in my collection of work. Its a process that I recently learned, and am slowly incorporating into my designs.
I didn’t go to school for jewelry. All of the techniques I’ve learned have either been self taught, or shown to me through individual lessons that I take on occasion with my mentor. My first love is fabrication. There’s something about the clean lines, architectural style, and streamlined design that I love.
The Canyon ring still incorporates linear detail, but provides a heavy, thick, banded style, and a more organic look.
To customize, the following stones are available to choose: red jasper, green jasper, black petrified wood, abalone, white lace agate, pink moss agate, turquoise, yellow aventurine.
Ring can be sized 4.5 through 7.5.
Please specify size and stone choice in purchase notes and allow a six week creation and delivery time.
All Hillary West jewelry is handmade with personally cut stone for inlay, or carefully chosen stones from fellow lapidary artists, or local mines. Every piece is one of a kind, uses recycled metals, conflict free diamonds, and holds its own personal story. If a piece calls to you, I truly believe that it guided me in its creation, knowing what your spirit was looking for.
