My mandala collection began with inspiration from Tibetan Buddhist Thanka paintings and the traditional motifs used to decorate Buddhist temples, particularly in Sri Lankan temples during my time living there. My starting point was lots of drawing and variations of the combinations and designs and sizes. I then handmade my favourites using individual pieces of wire, soldering every joint. For this mandala design, I designed the piece using a 3d design program, which then can be 3d printed in a special detailed wax. Once I was happy with the design I was then able to make a mould which could be used for lost wax casting. I then cut this mandala up to make new different pieces such as the petals for these earrings. With the raw casting I have to file, polish, gently dome, solder on a setting and ear post, set the stone and finish the piece. Each piece is inspected carefully by me to ensure a fine finish with no casting marks or flaws. They are all stamped with my unique hallmark, SB and metal purity.
The listing is for this exact piece, which is made to order so will take 1-2 weeks before it is ready to ship.
I will keep you up to date with expected finish times and let you know when the item is ready to ship, please let me know if you need the item urgently and I will do my best to prioritise the order.
I post items within Australia using Australia post, which usually takes from 2-5 days. For international orders I use DHL which has tracking and insurance. This can take 2-4 weeks depending on location. I will be in touch to give you details of your package tracking details and estimates of delivery times. Let me know if you want signature on delivery, insurance or express post.
