Pledge ring

 18ct white gold Large Pledge ring set with natural Australian parti sapphire

 I think that this is a beautiful stone, the colour changes in different light. It is a deep blue with some green tones, like a sea pool

this ring was delivered to e.g.etal about 2 weeks ago

Random ring

18ct yellow gold Random ring set with white and champagne diamonds, pink and blue sapphires.
I wanted this ring to be about all these colours, yellow, brown, white, pink and blue. They sit well together, and allow each colour to be seen.

this ring was delivered to e.g.etal this week

“ the past... has it’s spaces, it’s paths, it’s nameplaces, and it’s monuments…” 
 Merleau Ponty

cante ( song) – the cante expresses a collective feeling through an individual

it is what you do with the materials that makes it precious

‘ Like the sliver of bone that becomes a holy relic; so the objects are transformed by the presence of the believer, by the one who writes their stories: they become the vehicles for our dreams, the mediums of our memories.

Antonia Payne (Avoided Object)
