Journey Keepsake Protection ring with black sapphire

Sterling silver Journey Keepsake Protection ring with yellow gold plate, set with an oval black sapphire. Hand engraving on shoulders.

I have made a number of variations of this ring, some with pink stones, some with green and blue.
This is the first time I have used a black sapphire in this ring.
Over time, the yellow gold plating will wear down, remaining strong in some areas, hardly there in others. The engraving will wear down also over time.
The intention is that it should show signs of wear and change, as it is made to be worn and held.
This ring is at e.g.etal.
There is one.

A group of rings

A group of rings made for an exhibition at e.g.etal in 2012.
I just came across these images and it reminded me how much I loved making these rings.

Texture / light

A curtain made from cotton linings from old kimonos.
This was originally a banner I made, with help from friends, for an exhibition many years ago.

Wide Random ring

18ct rose gold Wide Random ring set with white and black diamonds, pink sapphires and rubies.
This was un unexpected combination of stones with the metal choice and I was very happy with the results.

An interpreted world is not a home.

  We cannot live in a world
that is not our own,
in a world that is interpreted for us by others.
An interpreted world is not a home.
Part of the terror is to take back
our own listening, to use our own voice,
to see our own light.
