Smooth Sterling Silver Ring with Copper Thread Insert | HerbertandWilks

Regular price $135.00

Lovely minimalist ring in sterling silver with two edges joined by a simple thread of copper - an everyday ring, the silver is satin finished and the copper has been allowed to age and colour naturally to a rich reddish brown. The surface of the silver is left smooth and the copper thread is slightly raised from the surface providing a subtle detail. Nice.

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.
