Lesunja keeps an original casting technique alive. The manufacture of jewelry with Ossa Sepia, the back plate of a squid, dates back to ancient times.
The Sepia collection combines the rough craft of antiquity with precise goldsmith work and timeless design.

The Ossasepia casting technique has a fascinating origin that dates back to ancient times. Originally, this technique originated from ancient Rome and was practiced by Roman artists and craftsmen. The name "Ossasepia" derives from the Latin words "ossa" for bone and "sepia" for cuttlefish, referring to the materials used and the wave-like pattern effect reminiscent of the sea.

The Ossasepia casting technique was primarily used for jewelry and decorative objects. Initially, bone molds or cuttlefish shells were used to create the desired casting molds. These molds were filled with a mixture of metals such as bronze, silver, or gold and then heated in a fire to melt the metal. Once the metal was molten, it was poured into the prepared molds and, after cooling, the final piece of jewelry or object was formed.

The Ossasepia casting technique is characterized by its distinctive wave-like pattern, which is created by the unique structure of the bone molds or cuttlefish shells used. This pattern creates a fascinating visual effect reminiscent of ocean waves, lending the technique a unique aesthetic quality.

Today, the Ossasepia casting technique is further developed and practiced by artisans and designers worldwide. Modern variations of the technique often use different materials for the molds, such as ceramics or specially crafted casting molds. However, the wave-like pattern remains a characteristic feature that distinguishes the Ossasepia casting technique from other casting methods.

The origin of the Ossasepia casting technique from ancient Rome gives it a historical and cultural value. By combining this ancient technique with modern know-how and contemporary jewelry design, an exciting connection between the past and the present is formed, reflected in the works of Lesunja Fine Jewellery and Design Miami.

One crucial aspect that drives my love for working with the Sepia technique, combining ancient techniques, lab-grown diamonds, and perfect-cut gemstones, is the commitment to recycling and sustainability.

In today's world, where environmental concerns are paramount, I believe in the importance of responsible and sustainable practices within the jewelry industry. By utilizing recycled metals and promoting the concept of recycling, I aim to reduce the demand for newly mined materials and minimize the ecological footprint associated with jewelry production.

Moreover, the use of lab-grown diamonds aligns with my vision of a sustainable future. These diamonds are created through innovative processes that replicate the natural formation of diamonds, while eliminating the environmental and ethical concerns associated with traditional diamond mining. By embracing lab-grown diamonds, I strive to support ethical sourcing practices and promote the beauty of sustainable alternatives in the world of jewelry design.

Combining these sustainable practices with the Sepia technique and perfect-cut gemstones allows me to create jewelry that not only captivates with its beauty but also carries a meaningful message. Each piece represents a commitment to preserving our planet and making conscious choices that contribute to a more sustainable future.

Through my work, I hope to inspire others to recognize the importance of recycling, sustainability, and responsible consumption. By wearing jewelry created with recycled materials and lab-grown diamonds, individuals can express their personal style while also taking an active role in promoting a more environmentally conscious approach to the art of adornment.

In essence, the combination of the Sepia technique, ancient techniques, lab-grown diamonds, perfect-cut gemstones, and a dedication to recycling and sustainability allows me to create jewelry that embodies not only beauty and craftsmanship but also a profound sense of responsibility towards our planet and future generations.
