Honeycomb RingGlenda Loretto
This Jemez Pueblo artist transmutes natural forms into permanent silver using the lost wax method.
Here, a slice of real honeycomb turns its fascinating geometry into a dramatic ring.
Everything, besides the honeycomb grid, is rounded: the shank of the ring, the circles within circles, culminating in a lustrous round pearl.
This creates a pleasing tension between rigorous geometry and the series of rotund forms.
This ring is a real conversation piece, as well as a striking accessory and statement piece.
This is a honey of a ring! (Sorry, couldn’t resist.)
