INSPIRATION AND DESIGN
My mandala collection began with inspiration Tibetan Buddhist Thanka paintings and 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. With the raw casting I have to file, polish 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 already finished and ready to ship.
I will have the item packaged and in the post with 2 days depending on my schedule and any adjustments or customisations.
I post items using Australia post, which usually takes from 2-5 days within Australia. For these earrings I ship them in a flat package using Australia post. If you would prefer I use DHL, which is insured and tracked, this is an extra $10 for orders under $100. It takes 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.
