Wild Rise Ring
Sterling silver - reclaimed
Royston Ribbon and Kingman turquoise
This ring... I had the vision and it turned out better than I had hoped. Something about the deep pop of the black outlines against the textured band really hits. The Royston Ribbon stone represents the river within the middle of the two risers. The top piece of turquoise represents food, fuel of the heart and water. Maybe my best trout piece yet.
Reclaimed as the day is long.
Made with love - one of a kind, twisted, bent, set, sawn, etched, fired by my own two hands.
Note to buyer: The reclaiming process is a bit of a long one. Most of the sterling silver I buy is from well used jewelry that isn't being worn anymore or has been broken. I also buy used sterling silverware. I melt it all down and roll it into sheet and wire. This means that I don't have to buy freshly mined silver that is much easier to work with. Reclaimed pieces cost more because of this extra process. In the end, reclaiming metal for my wares is gratifying and worth it to me. I hope you feel the same. With love.
