It began in the mountains with a love of nature and a curiosity to find buried treasure. I panned for gold in Oregon and California where I found enough gold to make one ring, and later on a trip to Italy I found someone to make it for. Yes, because of love I began making rings. I still add a small amount of panned gold to every ring, symbolic of my desire to one day use 100% locally sourced gold. I strive to find Gold and Diamond sources that are socially and environmentally conscious. This has been difficult but is entirely possible. I have made many trips to Arkansas to discover authentic American diamonds, a rather exciting experience. I also met a few of the miners who make an honest living from the mine. I buy diamonds directly from these proven experts.
I want to make rings and pendants that have a certain power to remind oneself of the benefits of living healthy, easy and free.
I'm asking for funding because I would like to do an exhibition of my work here in San Francisco in November, a black tie event. My friends, it will be a night to remember!
The show will feature just 3 elements Au79, Ag 47, C6 or Gold, Silver and Carbon - in the form of diamonds. I want to show the elements in their raw, pure form.
All rewards guaranteed to be authentic Lynchini hand made treasures, containing pure 24K gold, .999 fine Silver and real diamonds sourced from India or Arkansas. All gold rings will be 9-12 grams of pure gold, silver will be around 5-7 grams depending on the size. Rings ordered early will be available as soon as August for those in need of something right away.
The rings are heavily discounted for kickstarter supporters, who assume some risk in backing these projects. I can assure you I will deliver an exceptional product. I am excited to show many valuable rings, pendants and other pieces made with love and stamped with positive words.

Risks and challenges
The risks for this project are mostly logistical. For example Arkansas diamonds are rare and can only be cut by another Arkansas diamond because they are 30% harder than all diamonds. Many supplies will be needed to produce a significant quantity of rewards. For these reasons I have greatly limited the number of available rings. I have been working on this concept for the last few years and can now calculate with confidence the time required to make the limited number of rings and pendants I'm offering. I am ready to scale my efforts to produce the rewards promised, I know this will be a lot of work and I'm happy to do it.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
