Insect pins have been a specialty of Navajo jewelers since they began working in silver and stones. After all, Spider Woman is central to their mythology!
This genre is enjoying new popularity these days, and one major proponent is Herbert Ration.
This delightful ring is beautifully fashioned from sturdy silver wire, for the shank, with tawny tiger’s eye for the head and black onyx for the tapered body
Nicely shaped silver forms the hand stamped wings, with tiny round rounds for the eyes.
With a play of oval and tapered forms, the ring is surprisingly handsome on the finger, and very flattering, too.
The silver wires are comfortable and airy on the finger; with a rounded form, the shank will fit fingers a bit larger than 6 1/4.
Glowing tiger’s eye and gleaming black onyx combine with the antiqued and stamped silver for a wonderfully unusual and flattering ring.
Intrigued attention and flattering comments will surely follow, when you wear this prettily shaped ring.
