Oxidised Sterling Silver Wire Wrapped Ring explores the process of wrapping wire around objects and identifying the limitations of wire (point at which it would break or melt). Wrapped around a ring mandrel and pointy nose pliers then soldered together at strategic points to provide strength and stability.
When worn the ring hovers on the finger; the tighter wraps on the finger and the smaller coils float on the top of the ring. Delicate when worn, it is a striking piece.
Size P internal diameter is 13mm. The nature of the wrapped ring makes it forgiving in the sizing - it will stretch a little. The ring top is 1.2cm wide and 5mm high.
Also made to order.
