Victorian ring


18ct yellow gold Victorian ring, set with Rubellite Tourmaline and rubies

I delivered this ring to e.g.etal this week. It has taken me more than a year to make another one of these rings  (I have only ever made two - this is the second). I waited until I found an oval stone that I liked for the centre.

Adorned space
















All images from Moon to Moon

I have been going back and looking at things which have greatly inspired me over the years.
What was important to me aesthetically more than 20 years ago, is equally important to me today, and still informs my work.

Large Pledge ring with Australian sapphire

18ct yellow gold Large Pledge ring set with Australian sapphire

This ring was delivered to e.g.etal more than a week ago, and went straight on lay-by! Thank you e.g.etal.
It took me a while to source this stone, a beautiful blue, almost teal blue. The colour keeps changing according to the light.
I have another Pledge ring on the way, may be 2 weeks away.

Creation

 .
It's a little like Nietzsche said so well: someone launches an arrow into space (...) and then someone comes along to pick it up and hurl it out elsewhere, so that's how creation happens.

Gilles Deleuze in From A to Z (1988-9)
