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 baguette (rectangular) sapphire.
Limited edition of 9. I only have 9 of these tiny baguette sapphires and can’t find any more.
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 passion.
Size L 1/2
