This is what our rings look like prior to casting. This is your chance to pick what color of solid gold you want it to be. You can mix and match, having the engagement ring cast in Rose Gold and the wedding band to be cast in White Gold for that two-tone look. If you want to do two colors of gold for each piece please send us a message or add it to the notes section at checkout. Thank you!

The Lost Wax Method:

Each piece is designed and hand sculpted by Dawn using the lost wax method. We found that working in wax allows Dawn to model the fine details that she sees in nature and incorporate it into her work.

One-of-a-kind Ring


Each one of Dawn's one-of-a-kind rings starts with a unique diamond that allows her to use it as a canvas for sculpting the wax around the diamond. Each ring is hand sculpted and cast in place, meaning we cast the diamond and the wax at the same time. It's a process that Dawn has embraced as an artist that allows her to be creative without limitations.

Cast-in-place is the safest way to secure your diamond. Being that the gold flows around the diamond during casting, and shrinks slightly holding the diamond in the setting.

There are no molds on OOAK creations, I do each one out of love.

●Once you pick the color of gold you want for this ring, it will be cast and ready to ship to you.

This ring can only be cast in 14k or 18k gold. Silver is unavailable for this ring.

●Your rings will come with a ring box and a small ring tote.

Please message us with any questions you may have.

The Ghost Orchid - A Very Rare Orchid

Argentium Sterling Silver Ghost Orchid Ghost Orchid

I have added a picture of the Ghost Orchid to show just one of the photographs that I used to sculpt this tiny Ghost Orchid.
The Ghost Orchid is one of the rarest Orchids only found in South Florida and Cuba and this particular Ghost Orchid was spotted in the swamps in Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary in Naples Florida. An orchid enthusiast took several photos and sent it to me to make a pendant for his wife from this very rare sighting.
The Pendant is made from Argentium Sterling Silver 925 and is 1 3/4" tall by 1 1/4" wide and is an awesome design to wear. If you are a die hard orchid can surely appreciate the beauty of this orchid.
The chain is a very nice Sterling Silver 18" Rope Chain with a Claw Clasp.

Price: $98

New Calla Lily & Turquoise Necklace

There is something about bright shiny silver and turquoise that just goes together so perfectly but adding my Calla Lily Stem with all it's texture just adds a new level of beauty.
I strung up the piece, put it on my velvet bust and waited until Don came home from work...I sat the necklace on the counter so that it would be the first thing he saw when he walked in the door. His reaction was very positive...and for him, that's a good thing. Don has a very good eye and having him in this business is great because he has some great feedback.
At this time the necklace is 17" long but can be adjusted.
The Sterling Silver Pendant is 1.75" wide x 2.50" tall
Note: This is also a pin as well as a pendant
If you are interested in this piece, please call or e-mail me for more details as well as additional photos.

Asymmetrical Leaf Necklace with Amethyst Stones

Words can't describe how elegant this piece is.

When sculpting this piece I was thinking of a leafy vein just curling around whatever was in it's path, so it gracefully curled around my byzantine chain.
My Leaf Design was made in Sterling Silver which makes the Amethyst Stones pop!

I used two hanging Amethyst Teardrop Briolette Beads plus a beautiful 10mm x 8mm Oval Royal Purple Amethyst at the top of my leaf design.

The 2.6 mm Byzantine Chain is 18" long and has a "S" hook in the back but it can also be adjusted lengthwise from the front. It has a clever little clasp that holds the chain in place.
10mm x 8mm Oval Royal Purple Amethyst & Amethyst Teardrop Briolettes (HT)

I will be sculpting matching earrings, bracelet and a ring all with Amethyst stones to match the necklace.

For more information about this Necklace, please e-mail.
