IRON FRAGMENT I Urban I Sculptural I Unusual I Edgy I Unisex I Sustainable I Gunmetal Patinated Eco Sterling 925 Silver Ring
Inspired by the art and architecture of Joseph Paxton, The Crystal Palace and The Great Exhibition.
I set out to interrogate the architectural forms, their materials and their properties to create a collection of wearable artefacts with a contemporary edge.
Iron and glass possess both strength and fragility; light and dark; transparency and opacity; toughness and smoothness; coldness and warmth; coarseness and elegance...
Made from 'Eco' Sterling (925) silver. This is 100% recycled silver from products that range from scrap jewellery to scrap medical equipment, offering a much more environmentally responsible option. All of my work is created with sustainability in mind whilst retaining quality and integrity.
Currently available in UK sizes K and N-O (please drop me a line to put in a request for another size)
Each ring is slightly different due to the pieces first being hand carved in wax to be cast in precious metal and then individually hand finished.
Please also note that the patination will gradually wear off in time, especially on the high points that rub against surfaces and other rings worn next to it, to reveal the brighter, shinier silver beneath. The rate in which this happens depends on how often the piece is worn and how much the piece is in contact with water, chemicals (including soap and lotions) and hard surfaces. I find this only adds to the beauty and uniqueness of the ring.
However, I do offer a repatination service if you wish. Feel free to drop me a line.
As mentioned above, each piece is hand carved by me, then sent away to be cast, then fully inspected upon its return and hand finished by me before being sent to be Hallmarked at the London Assay office. I then personally pack and post your purchase.
This is unfortunately a bit of a lengthy process BUT assures you of a fully bespoke wearable artwork that definitely isn't mass produced and 'off the peg'.
