Wu Lou in 24kt Gold-Plated Steel

Wu Lou in 24kt Gold-Plated Steel

This is my representation of an Asian Wu Lou (see below) and is made of stainless steel that had been plated with 24kt gold.

The Wu Lou or Hu Lu is said to have the ability to absorb bad chi energy, and the reason that Taoist monks use the calabash to imprison evil spirits. According to Chinese mythology, Monks and Deities of the Taoist belief made use of the calabash Wu Lou by imprisoning evil spirits inside to stop them from causing more problems. This is where the Wu Lou got the ideology of being able to absorb negative chi in your surroundings.

The Wu Lou was originally used as a Feng Shui cure as a health enhancer and protector as the calabash was used to store medicine although traditional medicine would usually be a wine or spirit which is how the Wu Lou was adapted in to a wealth cure as alcohol became a symbol of wealth.

Peace Earrings in Sterling Silver

A client approached me with a request to make a duplicate pair of earrings to match one that she’d lost. I worked on the design from a blurry photo of the remaining earring and then had the wax mold 3D printed by Shapeways. This was then cast in silver. Available from my shop on Shapeways.

Question Mark Ring

Ever just wonder WHY? Do you question everything? Then this ring is for you! Next time someone exasperates you with a stupid decision just stick up your finger and ask WHY? with a flourish.

I designed this sterling silver (.925 silver) question mark ring myself so that the ring becomes slightly adjustable in size because it doesn’t form a solid circle. It’s a unique design and sure to be a conversation piece.

This ring is NOT silver plated and is NOT hollow. It is a SOLID sterling silver piece.

This ring is available in two sizes READY TO SHIP (no waiting!) from my ETSY STORE.
** US Size 7.4 and Size 5 ** (see ring mandrel photo’s).
