Oxidised Drip Ring | HerbertandWilks

Regular price $135.00

A unique and delightfully unusual heavily textured ring both on the band and the ring face, made in sterling silver 925. The texture is created by dripping wax onto sheets of wax and using a hot knife to create the fluid movement over the band. The wax is then cast into Sterling Silver, the surface then oxidized to provide depth: as the ring is worn the raised areas will revert to silver while the lower areas will remain dark.

  • band width at the back of ring 10 mm
  • band thickness 2 mm
  • face of ring is 14 mm x 20 mm
  • ring size is Q
Any different size will need to be custom made and will need 10 to 15 business days to process -  you will need to ensure that your ring size is correct.
If you would like the ring finished in Satin or polished silver, please let us know. Allow 15 business days to process your order.

    More from Sally 


    My work draws on my love of simple geometric and organic forms with my jewellery designs taking on a more sculptural nature. Conceptually my designs draw on the past and amplify the beauty and freedom in natural imperfections, working primarily in silver with highlights of gold and brass.
    From a creative family, my exposure to the world of making things by hand started at an early age. When I began studying I was first captivated by the sculptural properties of cast glass and the lost wax process, but rapidly fell in love with jewellery making and I consider the medium similar – only on a smaller scale.
    My designs rarely start life as drawings; instead I adopt a process of modelling with various mediums – paper, wax, and metal. This process allows my work to move organically in new directions and capture a sense of fluidity and movement.
    Lately, I have been focusing on the finished surface of the work. How the use of patterns, textures, and fabrics are captured by a material and the resulting change in the outward appearance of the surface.
