This young jeweler joins those who go beyond the traditional, Zuni lapidary styles and follow their own artistic paths.
In this ring, he actually seems to pay homage to the 1970’s Eustace family style, with the graceful silver leaf.
Then, instead of their well-known carved turquoise, he has set a natural nugget of Sleeping Beauty turquoise.
The contrast, between the sleek and polished silver and the rough natural state of the stone, is intriguing, original, contemporary, and eye-catching.
And, it is not only artistically attractive; Shawn has made the hand-hammered shank adjustable!
Whether you like to wear rings on different fingers, or the weather causes your finger to shrink or expand, this clever ring can be adjusted up or down, a bit.
Unexpected in style, carefully fabricated with versatility in mind, this ring is definitely one-of-a-kind.
Be a savvy collector, and catch this artist on the way up!
