Skull Mezzotint ring in sterling silver or 10k gold (limited edition)
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.
