Handmade Vintage Lace Ring in Copper Electroformed Electroforming with Silver Patina by TheButterfliesShop

49.90 USD

I dreamed of making lace jewelry for years and I realized my dream by discovering the electroforming technique.

This lace ring has not been cast from a mold but it has a thin coat of copper silver plated, over an original vintage piece of lace, making it a one of a kind creation!

Band high about 0.40 inches – 10 mm

Electroformed jewelry should be treated with care. It is fragile and it is not designed to be twisted or bent.

To create different effects of light and brightness, I added to this ring a silver patina over the copper.

If you choose jewelry with patinas, please remember to remove them before washing your hands, bathing, exercising, cleaning or sleeping. Patinas are very delicates.

My jewelry has not been sealed with paint or other sealant.

I’ll ship the ring gift wrapped, in a box, for you or your loved one.

This ring will fly to you with registered tracked airmail by Poste Italiane shipment service.
Please read my policies before you buy.
Please note that I’m not responsible for lost, stolen or damaged items, when they leave my hands.

Please feel free to email me should you have questions, need further descriptions or pictures.
