When I was a kid I used to go with my Dad up into the high country to tend to his bees. I have fond memories of chasing giant dragonflies.
This ring is cast in sterling silver from a mould I had made of a ring I hand carved out of jewellers wax.
Then I flush set the grey/silvermist diamond.
I then hand carved all the veins with my graver (a hand held cutting tool which uses my strength and control only, so there is no machine involved.)
I make many of these rings but they are all different as I engrave each one by eye.
I love engraving with a graver, the process, the simplicity, the skill and the result. You just can’t get that bright sparkle and hand crafted feel with laser cut or cast or roll printing techniques.
Enjoy a rare piece of jewellery that is made with skill and love.
Please note that the rings on the model are not the actual ring for sale, they are just to give you an indication of how the ring looks on.
Size N1/2

Thank you for your interest in my work,
