Wolf Ring in Antique Bronze
This is a design of wolf ring that I came up with while I was doing an apprenticeship with a wax modelist in 2003. The challenge; to make a smiling wolf ring to show teeth without being mean. Well after 25 hours of work(4 of which I re-did the ears 3 times!) I finally did it. Not an easy task for my early days, I assure you!The ring top is 2cm wide and 1.2cm high at the ears.
I made this ring a size 10 1/2 in antique bronze, which consist of 90% copper and 10% tin. I could make it with stones in the eyes upon request, just check with me about choices and price.
Bronze is an alloy that consists of a mixture of approximately 90% copper and 10% tin. Producing bronze is a less toxic process than producing brass as brass is a combination of copper and zinc, and the manufacturing process often produces zinc oxide which is toxic. Because bronze contains copper, it can turn your skin green whether you have an allergy or not. Bronze and copper turn your skin green because when the copper reacts with your sweat and the acids from your skin, it produces copper chloride. Copper chloride is a green substance that then rubs off on your skin. If you are prone to sweating, your bronze jewelry will definitely turn your skin green. This chemical reaction can also be prevented by painting any part of the jewelry that comes in contact with your skin with clear nail polish or clear acrylic enamel.
