Botanical Series #3 - Rhodonite - Sterling Silver Ring - Size 8

Description

This collection was inspired by the ironwork that was created during the Art Nouveau period in European cities during the turn of the 20th century. I designed the stones and metalwork to characterize abstract, asymmetrical, and curvilinear forms found in nature. From the cut and polish of these cabochons, to the hand drawn organic shaped elements. Six pieces in all in this series.

Materials:

Sterling Silver 
Stone, cabochon: Rhodonite

Technique: 
Setting: I hand cut and polished this beautiful Rhodonite cabochon. Individual hand cut petal shapes and torched granules were soldered individually to the setting. Some sections have 2 layers. 
I hand cut an abstract floral pattern on the back of the ring setting.
Hand formed, hammered shank - band. I added a sterling scroll pattern on one side of the ring band.
I added a patina-oxidation to the ring base to enhance the textures on the setting.
This ring can not be resized. 

Measurements:
Ring band: approx. 1/4 of an inch in width.
US Ring band size: 8
Ring setting: 1 3/4 inches in length - 7/8 of an inch in width  

I do my best to take accurate color pictures. Please keep in mind that colors will vary slightly from monitor to monitor.
