Sterling silver

Flower and leaves: 29 x 15 x 8.5 mm
Ring size: P


I made this ring for a friend of mine who likes bold jewellery and loves flowers. Usually I focus on making a piece both beautiful and practical, a requirement which I relaxed a bit for this ring. The flower and leaves protrude quite far from the ring and might catch on something when worn, but my friend is used to wearing large cocktail rings so I don't think it will be an issue.

The rose was made from a thin silver disk that I twisted into a spiral and then ruffled with pliers. The leaves were cut out of plate and hammered to give texture and shape. Lastly everything was soldered together and onto a high D-shaped ring.
