INSPIRATION 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, it is difficult using traditional methods so 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 this necklace. With the raw casting I have to file, polish and finish the piece before tumbling it to get the subtle matt finish. 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.
