My latest project is to design a jewelry collection fabricated with the lost wax casting technique. My partner and I decided that we wanted to design a unisex collection influenced by the minimalist movement for young people like ourselves.
Our concept involves two parts:
1. The arrow, which symbolizes the one-way direction and constant forward flow of life and time.
2. Yin and yang, which will be embodied in our final collection because all of the pieces come in pairs (one silver and one black) that are stackable. The silver pieces are yang - energetic and vibrant because of their polished silver finish. The black pieces are yin - more subtle and withdrawn with a satin finish.
Above, the rings from my partner's and my Doble V (Double V) jewelry collection are shown directly after casting in silver and brass, along with the original copper rings that we sculpted by hand and used to make the mold for the others. All of the pieces will be polished and the brass ones given a black patina.
