What is Electroforming?

At A Rolling Stone Jewels, we specialize in small-batch electroformed jewelry featuring raw gemstones. Each piece we create is a labor of love resulting in a one-of-a-kind piece every time. The process is as unpredictable as it is mesmerizing, and the result is a testament to the beauty of imperfection and the passion we pour into our work. Our jewelry is not just an accessory; it’s a piece of art that tells a story, capturing the essence of nature in a form you can wear and cherish forever. 

What is Electroforming?

Electroforming is a fascinating process that involves the deposit of metal onto a surface using an electric current. This method is particularly well-suited for creating unique jewelry pieces, as it can capture fine details and textures that other techniques might miss. 

Our process begins with carefully selecting raw gemstones, each chosen for its unique characteristics and natural beauty. These gemstones are then cleaned and prepared for the electroforming process. The gemstone is coated with a conductive paint where we want the metal to grow (this step requires much precision and patience).

Then the magic really begins! We place the prepared piece into an acid bath with an electric current running through it. Over the course of 12-48 hours, copper slowly coats the piece layer by layer. 

One of the most enchanting aspects of electroforming is its unpredictability. Each piece we create is a testament to this, with the copper forming unique patterns and textures that can never be exactly replicated. This ensures that every single piece is truly one-of-a-kind, embodying the spirit of individuality and personal expression. 

The Beauty of Imperfection

At A Rolling Stone Jewels, we celebrate the beauty of imperfection. Electroforming allows us to highlight the natural quirks and characteristics of each gemstone, transforming what might be considered flaws into features that add to the piece's charm and uniqueness. The process captures the raw essence of the stone, preserving its natural shape and texture.

Passion and Craftsmanship

Every piece of jewelry from A Rolling Stone Jewels is born from a place of passion and dedication. The electroforming process requires a high level of craftsmanship, with each step demanding precision and care. From selecting the perfect-imperfect stone to the final polishing, we pour our heart into every creation.

We believe that jewelry should be more than just an accessory; it should be a treasured piece of art that carries a story. Our passion drives us to create jewelry that is as unique and special as the individuals who wear it.
