lego silver rings
this is a fitting pair of objects for st. valentines day coming in a few hours. lovely, simple rethink and recast of actual lego pieces into an interlocking pair of rings. much better than that broken heart pendant they used to sell at the mall…
from Rubygirl’s Etsy page:
The Lego® bricks were hand cast using a process called sand casting. This casting technique is unique in that while the original form is left intact, the mold is destroyed and must be re-formed for each piece. This means that every piece cast will have subtle differences, making each piece one-of-a-kind. The Lego® bricks are soldered securly to band of sterling and measure approximately 1/2 X 1/2 inch. I gave both rings a black patina and then brushed it back to better highlight the detail. These rings were made with 100% recycled/reclaimed metal.
