Hand sculpted in wax with only the artist's hands and simple tools, then cast in brass. The melted forms of the wax and tool marks are forever captured in the metal, like a wearable sculpture.
Every necklace may be cast from the same mold, but no 2 will be identical. Please expect slight variations in texture and form from those pictured.

A note on brass: Brass oxidizes faster than other metals. Some people like the look of aged brass, but if you want to keep a high shine, periodic polishing is recommended!
About Oxbow Studio
Recently, they have began working with the lost wax process, an ancient technique of creating molds in wax, then casting in various metals. Their approach is very sculptural, embracing the organic shapes, tool marks, and finger prints they create in the warm wax that are then forever captured in metal. Alycia's idea of perfection embraces imperfection, and retaining traces of the artist’s hand are important to them. This approach results in modern pieces with an ancient feel that they hope you love just as mush as they do.
