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 floating on the top of the ring. Delicate when worn it is a striking piece.
Made to order. The nature of the wrapped ring makes it forgiving in the sizing - it will stretch a little. The ring top is 2cm wide and 8mm high.
Designed and handmade by contemporary jeweller Kerie Tonkin in the Adelaide Hills, South Australia.
