THE HANDMADE PROCESS
The classic ring style is a true work of art. The jewelry piece is handcrafted personally by artist, Lisa Ramos in her Clayton, California studio. Lisa's design philosophy is focused on creating high quality jewelry pieces you can wear for years to come. What makes a MONOLISA ring unique? Each ring is a one of a kind made piece that isn't casted - pouring molten metal into molds for mass production. The handmade design is an extensive process of sawing metal pieces, hand sculpting, soldering, hammering, texturing, sanding, buffing, multiple hours of heat hardening the Argentium silver to increase the tarnish resistance properties, stone setting and polishing to create a high. The MONOLISA Collection is not mass produced or sold in retail stores. Pieces from the collection can only be purchased on this website or at a show. The MONOLISA Jewelry Collection has been featured at fine art juried shows in California. Lisa's mission is to design beautifully handmade limited edition pieces that add a touch of elegance to any personal style.
