The reason I am making a jewelry piece a day –I reminded myself– is to have the pleasure of making a piece a day. Rushing to finish it makes no sense at all. Stressing about the outcome, removes the joy I get from playing around and discovering something new.
So I let go, and began again. This time, I did not follow a sketch, nor did I have any idea of what I’d make. I looked closely at the quartz I was going to work with, and noticed the inner filaments of black tourmaline. They made me think of windswept fields, so I decided to work with wire to create that image.
The resulting ring has movement, and feels slightly Art Deco. Turned upside down, it also looks like a jelly fish –which I can appreciate, because there are days when I feel I am swimming underwater, and there are others where I move like a gust of wind.
Handmade with tourmaline quartz and 100% recycled stelring silver.
Soon in my online shop.
