Bat Ear Cuff - Hand Crafted Sterling Silver Jewelry By Marty Magic W/gift Box:
Bat Ear Cuff / Chevron Sterling Silver Fantasy Jewelry by Marty Magic
This listing is for a beautiful hand-crafted Bat Chevron by Marty Magic. This delightful bat clings to the edge of your ear. It fits both right and left ears equally well. This bat ear cuff is hand-crafted of sterling silver, and beautifully detailed on all sides -- a wonderful miniature sculpture! (Diamond not included.)
This wonderful jewelry created by Marty Magic is lost wax cast in sterling silver, and personally sculpted by Marty in her mountain studio. All of the designs are Marty's originals, and all the processes are done by hand. Marty's designs are whimsical, encompassing the realm of fantasy. The dragon is completely 3-dimensional, detailed both front and back, and designed as a wearable sculpture. The lost wax casting process involves creating a model in wax which is then suspended in a metal flask, and "investment" is poured around it. (Investment is very much like plaster.) The invested flask is then placed in a kiln and the wax model is slowly melted out until only the negative cavity, the exact shape of the original wax model, remains. Molten metal is then centrifugally spun into this negative space and allowed to cool and solidify.
After the metal piece has been broken free from the plaster, there is a long process required in finishing the piece. Sprues (the bump at the opening where the molten metal was poured into the mold) must be cut and ground and various polishing media are used to bring the piece to its final polished state. The piece is then oxidized, which darkens the recessed areas and shows off details, giving the piece more of a three-dimensional, sculptural appearance. This beautiful ear wrap comes gift boxed, and would be a wonderful addition to your own fantasy jewelry collection, or a great gift for someone special.
