Each piece is individually handcrafted by artist Francis Prachthauser. Each piece is formed with simple hand tools under the heat of a 5000 degree flame. After the metal is bent, melted, stretched and flowed, it is polished and lacquered to preserve the luminous quality of the metal.
Francis has been a working bronze sculptor since 1982. His work has appeared in galleries, art shows and renaissance faires as well as his own store at Universal Studios Islands of Adventure, and specialty venues like Cirque de Soleil.

I ordered this ring in two different band thinknesses so that my boyfriend and I could use them as a promise ring to each other. I'm more than happy with this peice and am excited to continue being a frequent customer to Gryphon's Moon. Thanks again!"by Amanda
Quote of the moment: Back in 1990, the Government seized the Mustang Ranch brothel in Nevada for tax evasion and, as required by law, tried to run it. They failed and it closed. Now we are trusting the economy of our country to a pack of nit-wits who couldn't make money running a whore house and selling booze? Anon
