“(Aaron John’s) work is fresh, individual, and beautifully made.” That is the judgement of a recognized specialist in Indian art.
And that is evident to us all, looking at his pieces.
A lover of Nature, he does beautiful flowers, as in this lovely ring.
Very solid sterling silver forms the darkened, tufa cast petals. each one is incised with a “spine” down the center, and left tectured.
In the center, a darkened and chiseled silver bezel is polished on the top, to form a bright frame for the gorgeous turquoise.
Natural Kingman turquoise, the domed stone seems to glow from within.
Its luminous teal color is a delicious contrast to the textured and darkened silver petals.
The shank is another work of silversmithing art: an impressive tweak of the classic three-bar shank, with unusually solid gauge silver, and a beautifully hand stamped center bar.
The silver on the shank has been polished, but the inside edges of the two outer bars is darkened, for handsome contrast.
This enchanting ring is exceptional in all criteria: the workmanship is as fine as the design, and both are as high in quality as the remarkable turquoise.
This flower will always bloom, and embellish your hand.
