The Crack Ring in 14k yellow gold. I created this piece as part of a larger project dealing with the natural world. The smooth indentations on bones, curves of a gingko leaf. In doing my research about the natural world I had to release myself from thoughts of how I was pushing up close on scores of designers and artists who have mined the same source material. After all, we are paying homage to this terrific global home that we all inhabit. I designed the ring and was helped along by a terrific metalsmith who works out of Oakland. Being in dialogue with someone who works in such a sexy medium is intoxicating. We made a number of decisions along the way, particularly around the indentations found around the crack edges.
The ring offered is a size 9 1/2. This is a 22gram ring, 1" height at front, 1/2" height at back
