Lydia Heckendorf is the owner and artist of the Etsy shop, MoxZMetal. She skillfully handcrafts each one of her rustic copper men’s wedding bands using traditional metal-smithing techniques. It is apparent in her attention to detail how much time and care goes into making each custom ring. Thick Copper sheet is cut, soldered and meticulously textured with a hammer. Then it is permanently bonded with Sterling Silver lining to protect skin from the discoloring effect commonly involved with wearing copper jewelry. She may even stamp or engrave a custom phrase or date at this point. The ring is then given a rustic aged patina to accentuate the distressed texture and unique character of each ring. The end result is a handsome manly ring with one-of-a kind handmade appeal, strength and quality that lasts a lifetime.
For Lydia, making jewelry is more than just income and a funnel for her creative passion as she describes.
“I understand that wedding and engagement rings have a very special and sacred symbolism to the wearer and I’m so honored to be able to apply my skills and talent in a way that involves me in such a timeless tradition. It is so rewarding when people share with me their personal stories about giving or receiving my rings.”
