Sterling silver with copper plate - the copper plate is highly polished to a mirror finish I then use a technique "reticulation" which involves heating the silver taking it to melting point. While the silver is in semi liquid form I use a pic to form design and texture in the silver before it solidifies and fuses with the copper. This process may be repeated a number of times before the desired texture or design is achieved. I then use many different polishing techniques to achieve the final finish on the piece. This process allows for amazing textures and designs making every jewellery piece unique.
This ring is inspired by mountain ranges - This piece "mountain dome" shows its majesty rising from the flat plains the domed shape of the mountain rises gradually until it peaks. I hand engrave the design around the ring depicting a rivers journey along the plains.
