My Love and I have quite the selection of birds but the prettiest one has to be Richard the peacock, his iridescent feathers are beautiful from afar and close up. I remind myself of this when he starts calling at 3 o’clock in the morning...
With the eyes on their tail feathers, peacocks symbolise protection, guidance and awakening.
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 sapphire to represent the eye in the peacock tail feather.
I then hand carved the feather 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 photo on the model is not the actual ring for sale, it is just to give you an idea of how the ring looks on.
Size N1/2
