Baseball Cross - Work In Progress

Baseball Cross - Work In Progress

I carved this Baseball Cross out of wax and used this to create a sterling silver version. Sandcasting is great fun and it's always exciting at the end to open it up and see the results. Now it just needs some clean up, a jump ring bail added and ready to go.

Tiny Leaves, Big Growth

Tiny Leaves, Big Growth


I love tiny leaves. They always make me think about my garden, watching little seeds sprout through the dirt. Every day you can see they have grown just a bit more. We are like that too. Everyday we have a chance to grow as a person or to wither. I choose to grow. I choose to immerse myself in things that bring me joy. To surround myself with people that inspire and uplift me. I hope you choose to grow where ever you are in life.

 


From Wax Carving to Cast Ring, The Process.

From Wax Carving to Cast Ring, The Process.

From carving the wax to casting, this is the process I use. I use hand tools to carve the wax and to clean it up after it is cast. I enjoy the slow process. The care and attention to detail. It may be slow but it's a joy I look forward to daily. Truly satisfying to create from raw scrap to a beautiful finished piece.
