the twig ring made in silver with a yellow sapphire
The ring was cast from a bud-covered branch from a tree discovered in the artist’s neighborhood. The branch, like ivy, wraps around the finger. It is reminiscent of the artist’s childhood when she used to wrap twigs around her fingers and pretend they were rings.
The stone was set in place in the wax and cast in silver by using the ancient technique of lost wax casting.
The "branches" on the shank measure 7.8 mm at the widest where the stone sits. The shank is between 6.8 mm to 5.15 mm wide.
sterling silver and 3 mm yellow sapphire
