Each piece in the "Mines of Moria" series is created by a process called "electroforming," a unique confluence of copper and stone that takes hours to create. No two are ever alike, even with the same type of stones.
Taking the pieces out of their acid bath is like opening a kiln--you never quite know what you're going to get!
The series was named as a tribute to my favourite series of books, "Lord of the Rings," by J.R.R. Tolkien. I felt that they resembled something you'd find in a Dwarven mine.
