Fantasy rings by Astalo Fantasy rings by Astalo
Four organic style rings what i have made from silver by using the centrifugal casting method. I made these in my schools "contemporary jewelry courses" and our teacher was some German artist called Karl Fritsch.

I copper coated a little bit that one ring because i want it to look more interesting with the greenish patina.

I like the enormous level of detail. This is rare.

Thanks, but I think that these are quite simple compared to some of my "clock recycling projects" :) [link]

Tosi mukavaa kuulla. Löysin paljon kiinnostavaa tavaraa myös omasta galleriastasi.

Aika hauska retrohenkinen tyyli joissakin töissä. :)

Kiitoksia kovasti! Mukava ko tykkäsit.

Ensi askelia hopean kanssa. Valmistuin justiinsa hopea-artesaaniksi ja nyt mietin seuraavia askelia.

Korualan työllisyystilanne ei ole paras mahdollinen tällä hetkellä, mutta se sopii tosi hyvin ainakin semmoiseksi satunnaiseksi sivutuloksi mitä tekee jonkun "normaalimman" ammatin rinnalla. Monien käsityöläisammattien tulot ovat vähän liikaa sesongeista riippuvaisia ja joutuu aina kituuttamaan osan vuodesta.. :roll:

Itsekin ehdin tekemään hopeatöitä ja muita monimutkaisempia koruprojekteja lähinnä vain näin joulun ja kevään välisen ajan, koska muu osa vuodesta menee isommissa metallitöissä ja monessa muussa epämääräisessä projektissa. (Toki myös tämmöisen maa/metsätilan pyörittämisessäkin on aina oma hommansa..)

On niin totta, että koruilla ei leipää pöytään vielä kanna. No joo, ehkä leivän, vaan laskunmaksu jää. Pyrin kuvataiteilijaksi. En unohda hopeahommia kuitenkaan, vaan harrastelen, kun saan kotipajatarpeet. Käsityön arvo nousee vielä, niin uskon. Kunhan tämä lama väistyy. Oman homman etsimistä tämä kai on. Jokapaikan kokeiluita! :)

On varmasti mukava kun on omaa maata. Perinteistä hommaa, vaikka viekin aikansa. Mieli lepää.

Onnea projekteille. Se sinun steampunk käsine oli huima.

Thanks for your comment. I use only standard cheese wax for the casting models in this project.

Some of those surface textures are encarved later in my Dremel tool. :)

Nice ring designs. Did you start with wax, or did you use organic material to cast with? I especially like the texture on the animal and tree ring.
