All Little Sycamore jewelry is lead & nickel free. These rings are formed in pure copper and plated in the thickest possible plating of rose gold. The plating is 3 microns thick, which is much thicker than typical plated jewelry.
The process: I start out with a handmade hammered band, which gives the ring a lot of pretty texture. I spend a lot of time arranging the stones onto the band, hand-picking the prettiest stones I want to use and finding the positioning that I think looks best with those stones. After finding the perfect design, I sand the mounting to get the shape that I want and carefully paint the ring with conductive paint. Using an electric current, metal deposits onto the ring and around the base of the stones for 12+ hours. This slow build up of metal creates a unique and organic looking setting that very securely holds the stones in place. The ring is tumbled, hand-polished, and plated in a very thick layer of gorgeous sterling silver. Long story short... a whole lot of time and love is put into this little beauty!
