I am Mandy, I am the creator of Drift. The OG drifter if you will. I am a 30 something who lives on the road with my husband and four pets in a renovated camper. With a background in online retail and photography I have been looking for something a bit more artistically fulfilling that also was friendly to this lifestyle. When I saw a random video on instagram of a couple soldering jewelry from their van there was no looking back. I found every youtube video I could on how to make silver jewelry. The rest is history.
It has been two years since I first found jewelry making and I am so honored to present Drift. I really feel like this is where I need to be, and this is what I need to be doing. So thank you for being here. ✨
How it's made
Everything on my website right now is made by using the Lost Wax Casting technique. ✨
I carve something out of a hard wax with sharp tools. I send it to a small casting house in New Mexico, they cast the items for me into the metals I choose and send them back to me. Once I get these items back I turn them into the pieces I envisioned them to be. I solder them into rings, earrings, necklaces, and bracelets. 💃🏻I oxidize them to show the imperfect details of my carvings, then polish them up, package them with care and send them to you!
