This flower was modeled using Rhino 3D version 5.0, printed with a Solidscape wax printer, and cast in sterling silver with a centrifugal casting machine. Beaded wire was soldered to the piece to form the ring shank, then the piece was polished on the outside of the petals and textured with diamond burs on the interior of the petals. The amethyst was set and then the piece was gold plated.
