Skull Mezzotint ring in sterling silver or 10k gold (limited edition PREORDER)
This ring is available for pre-order. It will NOT be ready in time for X-mas!
I will be making these rings in late December and will start shipping them early to mid January.
Inspired by Georgian and Victorian mourning jewelry, this ring features an original mezzotint of a skull, sealed and set under a flat natural clear quartz stone and bordered by a ring of granulation. Stylized leaf shapes extend from the rounded band into the shoulders of the ring, opening at the top to frame the granulated border.
I hand-pulled each print from a copper plate with a miniature etching press using gray 100% cotton rag paper and black Akua soy-based intaglio ink. Because the print is sealed with jeweler's epoxy, this ring can be considered water-resistant. However, I recommend removing it when spending extended periods in water, such as bathing or swimming.
This ring is a limited edition of 25. Once it's sold out, it will be permanently discontinued.
sterling silver: $275
10k gold: $925
Print and stone measure 12mm in diameter.
